    I'm inclined to give the head of the Forest Service a pass on this one, given what this article has to say – YMMV. Hope the link works for you folks:

    When the lump from that baseball subsides, you might want to reconsider your post. You can take all the pictures of trees you want. You just can't enter a wilderness area for the primary purpose of...

    Well, this is mildly amusing. I just went up our driveway to the mailbox and discovered fresh bear scat in THE DRIVEWAY, replete with an acorn and some white pine nuts. :D

    The bear is apparently...

    This is a refinement of an existing regulatory regime to add filming. As much as I might hate to see the directive's implementation generally, it's tough for the Forest Service to defend in court a...

    They do have a fondness for beavers – saw one trying its best a few years back. And a brown/grizzly will excavate a very large hole, flinging big rocks to the side, just to get hold hold of a single...

    Black bears took to the trees as an evolutionary adaptation a long time ago, to protect their cubs from predators and to avoid conflicts with larger bear species. As a result, if you have lots of...

    Directions for using the spray are here: Bear Spray Demonstration

    Knowing when to use it depends on your ability to read bear behavior. If the bear is coming fast and low and quiet, hit it with...

    +1 on the revision in my attitude toward carrying my spray here in New England. I've been watching this small trend in behavior for some time. I am solo 99.99% of the time I'm in the woods, apart...

    I find the creation of this thread by a CURRENT winter record holder to be an achievement worth recognizing as well, especially in this day and age. ;)

    Fish and Game has the top level authority for all inland SAR in the state. However, that doesn't mean they are actually involved in every instance. Their typical mission starts when local law...

    No, actually, the authorizing statute only authorizes recovery of expenses incurred by the Fish and Game Department. This one only involved local authorities and state park personnel.

    Yes, I'm flogging a supine equine, but you should know this anyway:

    Four years ago I left the then twenty-six year old VE-24 at a campground for a few hours to have dinner at a friend's house. On...

    What you're missing is the VE-25. I have its predecessor, the VE-24. You won't notice the weight nearly as much when the wind is hammering you in the locales you mention.

    Here's a field report...

    It's good to hear that the engineers at REI have done a better job than their local colleagues in the profession did with the eponymous structure. :rolleyes:

    He's undoubtedly the person anywhere who has had the most experience with a Newfy in the Whites. Might be the same for the Sierra Nevada, for all I know.

    BTW, I used to have one as well. I applaud...

    You do know that your transits through the toll booths are logged into an online system when you use EZ Pass, whether you personally use that logging system or not, right? ;)
