    What you write is true. A good discussion of the differences between trails in New England and trails elsewhere is to be found in the Student Conservation Association manual Lightly on the Land,...

    peakbagger, your friend was quite correct. Trails out West on federal land benefit from federal tax dollars. They are also engineered for horses and are on land quite different from New England in...

    If you take your coffee black they are harder to tell from a few grounds. Besides, what's so wrong with a little organic free-range protein? Look on the bright side, the mosquitoes are out so we...

    I hope that people will realize that it is selfish to fly a whiny drone around other people, especially on a viewpoint others are sharing. Is it all that necessary to have a selfie video from your...

    What, another PUD? Easier to just bridge the gap. They'll get right on it as soon as they finish replacing the damaged one on Thoreau Falls Trail... how long did you say that gap is?

    Trail Boss, I thank you for seeing my meaning. You are of course correct that I am confusing two zones that are different in mountaineering lingo. I do in fact know that, but I am used to talking...

    That is a good question. Can any reader enlighten us as to the work of such USFS employees in 2016?

    Aye, peakbagger, that's the great improvement from 4WD vehicles: they help us get much more stuck much further from help than we could back when all we had was 2WD rigs.
    Ah, Progress!
