Wade Mountain, Huntsville, Alabama

It appears that summitting cheesburgers is gaining momentum in the heart of Dixie!   On Saturday, January 31, 2009 a group of 21 geocachers banded together to climb Wade Mountain on the north end of Huntsville, AL in Madison County.   I had turned cheeseburger summiting into a geocache event ( http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=d1fd278d-0ab7-42b0-8136-5d66eea5ac94&log=y&decrypt=) and that interested a few nuts!   For those taking the most direct route up and back it was a little over five miles round trip, with a change in elevation of about 750′ .      For those who could not turn down the opportunity to find just one more cache, well that group made this a 7+ mile extraveganza.    We did break up and come up in groups.   The first group to the top were our summit chefs(Keymaker and Vesole), who packed campstove and suppply to make their own burger up top!    Later came ClarkBowman and The_Rebel, then David, ParrGolf, and Rick618.      The rest of us arrived in one big wave including VolCachers, ToisRUs, cbianca, chrisiris, HaresEar, KD4DCE, momentforus, snoopy dog dee, wayne_etc, and myself…..    Heres’s a few pictures of the whole affair!

    I gotta tell you, that was one of the best cheeseburgers I’ve ever had. It was an honor to be a part of (I’m assuming) one of the biggest summit cheeseburger ventures yet.

    This must be the largest Summit Cheeseburger event to date. I especially enjoyed hearing about some grilling on the summit. That’s also a first – I think.

    What a hoot. 21 people and dog, 5 miles of hiking and all manner of cheeseburgers.
