LL Bean hosts a lecture series on Friday evenings from January through April. These are events run by LL Bean. They are here on the MOAC calendar to make membership aware of them. Questions should be addressed to LL Bean. These events are held in the camping department atrium. MOACers often gather for a nightcap after.
Search and rescue missions are on the rise in New Hampshire’s White Mountains and elsewhere. Growing enthusiasm for going out – and the now common presence of cell phones and other locator devices – means search professionals are making more calls to the volunteers who supply the expertise and muscle needed to execute these often dangerous rescue missions.
Using recent White Mountain incidents as narrative examples, Sandy Stott will consider the people who do this search and rescue work and, particularly, the command of situation and self that such work asks.
Stott is a journalist, teacher, hiker and recent author of Critical Hours: Search and Rescue in the White Mountains, one of Outside Online’s “Best Books for Spring ’18.”
