    I missed the date of John's passing by a few weeks. This past month, Laurie and I had a shot of Lagavulin Single Malt, one of John's favorites, at the summit of South Kinsman. It was 'Flags on the...

    Listen!

    It's getting louder!

    It's the death knell of VFTT. :(

    Maybe if this happened more often and was publicized, at least a few people would take note and be more prepared, or at least realize that help may not come instantly.

    Great! We met lots of friendly folks on the trails and at the summit. A little hazy for views but all 48 peaks were covered. Tons of pics on their facebook page.

    FWIW, she was a fairly recent 46R.

    And FWIW again, I was not calling anyone out. I was just stating 1 fact that I thought was relevant to the discussion.

    It's been a while since I've been on S Kinsman. Is it worth bringing binoculars to try to see other flags?

    Also, if you don't have it out and ready at all times, you might as well not bring it.

    Like Sierra, we've spent many years hiking all over the NE. We've never had a negative encounter with bears,...

    Flags on the 48 is 9/11 this year

    Just a reminder that Flags is coming up soon. Last I looked, they still had plenty of room to sign up, especially the Tripyramids.

    If anyone is going to be on the Kinsmans, we might see you there....

    From the original Catskill 3500 Club bylaws:

    2. The peak must be at least 1/2 mile away from any...

    As you can see from my previous post, I did not forget about the Catskills. Perish the thought!

    No the 46ers don't technically care about the 2 Catskill peaks, but if you ask some 46ers, they would say the ADKs have 46 4000' peaks. (Of course many know that is not the case). Thus 2 more in the...

    If you want some more irony, there are 48 4Ks in NY, (at least according to the 46ers). :p

    Ok, it's a game. But it's a game where the rules changed. That's what I don't like. There used to be very specific rules.

    Now instead of data, we have emotion. At least, if the list is the list,...
