    Slightly off topic; Has anyone been on blackpond trail this winter ( on the way to BP bushwhack) and come across any significant blow-downs? I cleared them in Nov and would like to know what to...

    JDL was meant to be "Joe Dodge Lodge" at the Pinkham Notch visitor center. I spelled it out in the original post then TJ used JDL in a response so I figured it was an accepted acronym. Thanks for...

    Great weekend. Yes, Tim, 19 mile brook was the best choice Friday. Two hikers tried Imp to M. Carter Saturday and had to turn back and come up 19 mile after trying to break trail to M. Carter. I...

    I like the idea of dropping weight at the hut before the Carters but that would be a very long hike for me. I'm going to take it one step further and add a day to my trip; Bus up thursday, Hike to...

    Bob: So how does that work at the THs, do just leave it visible on your dash. Do you know if the visitor center at Lincoln sells the senior passes?

    FYI , with the SPOT mounted on my shoulder strap in the winter I am able to send signals by pressing the buttons with the pointy end of the grip on my hiking stick.

    How much faster does the tracking wear down batteries. I've thought of paying for this but not if it drains the Li batteries fast.

    I use the OK button for "Im on the trail" and send a signal...
