Winter Wonderland Hike up the Ammonusuc Trail

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man , in Hillstomping Update, Samurai Incarnate 28 December 2011 · 857 views

Celebrated the Second Day of Christmas with an awesome winter wonderland hike up the Ammonusuc Trail to the AMC Lakes of the Clouds hut. Didn't take the Oz Man this time because I didn't think this trail and conditions would be dog-friendly. Turned out to be the right choice-- would have had to abort mission if the Oz Man was with me, no way he could've made this.

Trail conditions were snow on top of ice-- combined with the steep grades, this is one of the most difficult traction conditions you can encounter. I only brought my Kathoola microspikes and they were not at all adequate for this hike-- needed full 10-point crampons, which I left back in the van. :( Took some world-class tumbles both going up and back down. No real injuries, just a wet, bruised butt and snow dumped down my shirt and britches.

A Christmas Eve Service Call on Smarts Mountain

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man , in Hillstomping Update, Samurai Incarnate 24 December 2011 · 2,928 views

The Samurai is ready to go wherever and whenever there's a broken appliance! No place is too remote for a service call from the Samurai. Here's a Christmas eve service call I made today to a home on the summit of Smarts Mountain with a broken Dacor range.

Smarts Mountain
The view from Lambert Ridge heading up Smarts Mtn. near the outset of this four mile hike to the summit where the house is.

ice flow on the trail
Hiking up the glacier. Oh yeah, the Samurai does all-terrain service calls!

Firetower on Smarts Mtn.
There's a fire tower at the top of the mountain. Oz Man and I stopped by to check it out.

Oz Man doesn't like the fire tower.
Up top inside the fire tower. Oz Man doesn't like it!

But nice views!

unhappy customers
When we came down from the fire tower, we met the customers who lived on the summit. I couldn't put my finger on what it was, but they had a little different vibe about them and something told me I was in a for a surprise on this one. They were also pretty upset about their broken range.

Service call location
Now we arrive at their house. Complaint was a Dacor electric oven that was completely dead-- no lights, nuttin'. I quickly determined the problem: no power supply and not just to the oven-- no power running to the entire structure!

Heading down
They seemed to understand my explanation that they needed electricity to make an electric oven run. Since it was getting late, they invited us to stay for dinner.

Rat Kabobs
They were making rat kabobs. I thanked them profusely for their kindness but, since the Nativity Fast was still going on, I declined and opted instead for some snacks I brought. The Oz Man, however, enjoyed munching back on several roasted rats. After a fine meal and much merriment, the Oz Man and I headed back down the mountain to spend Christmas with the family. Ho ho ho!

Wrong Address? by Zenzoidman, on Flickr

I thought this was the place but it's all boarded up. My GPS musta given me bum directions. The search for the service call destination continues. There's an appliance in need out here! :argh:

High Mountain Service Call by Zenzoidman, on Flickr

Finally found the place. There's no place too remote for the Samurai to go on a service call! Even if you live on top of a mountain in a dumpy cabin, the Samurai can fix your broken appliances! :pain30:

When we finally got that snowblower fixed, it was getting late for the hike down. The Samurai's semper fi canine apprentice, The Oz Man, led the way! :spacecraft:
