    No need to register a kayak in CT. You do need to carry a whistle though. And a light, if paddling at night - a headlamp will work. And a PFD. I believe there are dates before and after which you...

    Had that happen with a pair of Merrills. Tried to seal the split with Shoe Goo, but it wasn't a repair that was going to be durable.

    How long do your hiking boots last?

    Today I noticed that the tread on my boots have worn through in a couple places. Hadn't really paid much attention to the soles, and it is only serendipity that I noticed it today.

    What happened to Trail Conditions?

    Several days ago, all of the state-specific trail conditions forums disapeared from the "Forums" list. Don't think I did anything differently. Did they go away and I missed the memo?

    Twin Mt is a couple miles from the trailhead for North Twin, I think. Might be more like a 3 hour trip at 80mph from central CT, though.
