    What does not add up to me is the times. He started at 11:00, probably a bit late. He activated the PLB near 4:00. Now I can only assume he had spent some time up there but not thinking it took...

    About the only time I wear my contacts now are for hikes over two miles when I know I will be sweating. Wet glasses are a problem too. Only issue I've had with winter hiking has been in weather at...

    An interesting read, nice to see the "published experts" do some dumb things too. After too many plans with friends went awry, I started solo hiking and probably do 50/50. I enjoy both. There are...

    I'd agree with Sierra, especially since historically they did use to get horses up to the top.

    I'd wager that some of the confusions is due that what we consider the above the trees views on the...

    Whether I put on snowshoes or spikes depends on depth, effort and how many times I post hole. So far, I've been south of Mt. Sunapee and there has not been enough snow. Generally about 12" is what...

    Where are you familiar with? The Whites, Adirondacks or Baxter State Park are, IMO, the best three spots to go. (Catskills are nice too not as many views, maybe better waterfalls though)

    You're mistaken but if you like the Skookumchuck trail, you'd think you would come out on the FRT but you don't. You come up to Lafayette on the GRT when you take the Skook.

    It's even worse in the ADK's where they know have a designated "path" up the peaks without trails..... Smaller winter group but not what they were in the 70's and 80's.

    The places he named are more like places to drift in and where you can't see where the trail leaves the open summits and re-enters the woods. It's not hard finding the trail down Jackson back down...
