    I find it curious that many have mentioned peak bagging accomplishments in their signatures. When I first joined here I noticed that and added my "stats" because I felt like I was expected to. Kind...

    I have limited experience in the Adirondacks but I'd push back on the Whites having "far more" deadly terrain. Most of the peaks in the 'Daks are pretty remote and have far longer approaches vs NH,...

    Don't trouble yourself with all that. The way you worded it I thought maybe you had a list of waypoint coordinates or something for sources. That is what I used to do when I was really tracking my...

    Yah I've always owned Tubbs and I think I'll always have a strong bias toward their binding system. It really is as easy as it gets. One of the things I've always hated about snowshoes is the lack of...

    I think this is another element of the social media universe. People dramatize everything, try to out do and one-up each other, portray themselves as such giving and caring people, and 90 seconds...

    Thanks for jolting my memory on that. Someone on here quite awhile back said they carried a small length of copper wire for repairs and that is better than plastic. Never did get around to getting...

    Is that something you have documented in any way that is shareable and if so would you share it? I frequent the Presi's on most of my hikes and have some notes on places I get water but a...

    That point was not lost on me. I don't think anyone on this forum doubts your commitment and enthusiasm for navigating "the hard way". I can respect that 100%.

    I can't speak for anyone else, but I find I prefer to do both map and GPS together. I learned first via map and compass and later got a GPS and eventually a cell phone app (Gaia Pro). It took me...

    That looks similar to the knot I actually use for most of the year. I'm not sure what it is called. He calls it a McCarthy Hitch but I haven't come across that name in many tutorials so I don't know...

    The link I clicked on did say it included lodging and meals. I didn't investigate it further so I don't know if there was a better breakdown. Even at $150 I think a lot of people are not doing it.
