    Hike your own hike.....

    For me that means, I'll try and finish the 48 in all four seasons but doing Owl's Head 12 total times seems to be just punishment. (I have about 8 left in summer and eight...

    Assume you mean to the High Peaks area. Like NH, shelters (lean-to's) can be full early on Saturday Nights so a tent is always good to bring. As many 2-3 night hikes as your imagination allows. ...

    Suppose if they break it up with 10 clockwise and 11 counterclockwise, I'd be okay with "the spirit" of the regulations. They still actually have to show up and make it too.

    Gloves and headlamps are probably the two things I go redundant on. Don't take up much space and warm hands and light are worthwhile when compared to the other alternative. I sometimes have two...

    Some of those Summer Solstice hikers may be more exposed than they thought..... :eek:

    With Infrared you'll be able to see how many are camping too high where they have no camping above X feet. ...

    I'd bring one liter for the trip to Zealand, then fill two or three bottles and drink up at the hut. From there, I'd filter any other water. It's a bit of a drop down to Guyot and from the hut...

    On the trail, you can average pretty much your normal in town pace. I'm also in Colchester, CT. Maybe we can car pool at some point.

    It's a few hundred feet less climbing going North to South but you get Zeacliff and the view from the hut on the last five or so miles out going north. If I was going North to South I'd opt also for...

    Most of us should be able to talk them out of turning back on our behalf or even sending another hiker. I did it back in the 90's on a Carter Dome trip when the flu made continuing just pact the 19...

    It's always fun to go different ways to vary the experience. You can go in on the trail and then take the fisherman bushwhack on the way out. (follow the brook downstream until you reach the...

    It's the same floating bridge, I went swimming last year. The walk from Tahawus avoids the bridge and the extra elevation gain by going past Lake Arnold. You will need the bear can too. Only thing...

    Went up on 6/21 and back on 6/22, I did not see any large groups (30+) out on 93 or along 3 or 302.
