    Congratulations!

    Is there actually a separate recognition for winter? What about the trail work?

    Exit 27 - WMNF headquarters
    Exit 28 - The Waterville Valley Chamber of Commerce

    only 1-2 exits past 26, not terribly far.

    I just mail order mine for a small service fee.

    Here are the two tracks. Green is the "BW" (former North Twin Trail) and pink is the snowmobile trail. The BW is about 0.9 miles and the snowmobile trail is about 1.1 miles.

    I would think that the official NEHH list would be amended in some way if peaks on it were suddenly off-limits.

    Last year (13 months ago), we had no troubles with parking for the FWT up Abe. Gotta love the Subaru Forester and Jeep ;) This year, the same two vehicles made it 1 mile down the Stratton Brook...

    Here's one opinion...

    Mt. Washington via Jewell (out-and-back) is less challenging terrain-wise than the northern three (Jefferson, Adams, Madison). There are some big northern-presidential-esque...

    Doesn't freezing a ceramic filter element cause it to crack therefore rendering it useless?

    I'm not really questioning that I should treat the water - I'm interested in the rationale behind the treatment method. Ordinarily, I filter, but my filter might freeze. Boiling is time-consuming...

    Link away! Also, I've read the BSP packets already, but I'm interested in what it's actually like dealing with the wood stove over time, and other users, etc. Why did you treat water (if you did)...

    I hiked to Owl's Head on Saturday and there is reasonable coverage on Lincoln Woods Trail, and it wasn't too icy. There is not much snow out there. Waterville Nordic says 8" in the woods and 3" on...

    Don't be disappointed if the lower stretch of the Garfield Trail is too thin to ski. For whatever reason, that first section seems to have / hold less snow than surrounding terrain.

    I did the one crossing in November and I did notice the tree was gone. We had no problem crossing that day, which is not to say that it the reader will be able to cross it now, or at any other time...

    I'd never get anywhere in any reasonable time if I went slow enough not to sweat at all. The best I can do is bring a change of layers and, if I am careful, I can often get the wet ones to dry out...
