    The optimist in me thinks that getting this all out into court and sorted might "clear the air" and enable a more harmonious relationship. The pessimist remembers the summit rights issues have been...

    This is starting to defeat the purpose of having a shoulder. That's an awful lot of crap to drive through if you get a flat and need to pull over.

    Your best reference is probably Ray Jardine. He renames the book with every edition and I believe the current is called Trail Life.

    In the past I've used the Mombasa Defender which is a simple...

    I have been of that theory. I took a glacier travel class a few weeks ago and the (deeply experienced) instructors suggested I swap on my crampons, based on the theory that if the straps are on the...

    The WMG maps used to include a few of the major ski trails, including Avalanche Brook. They removed them a few editions ago, which I think was a mistake. Mapmakers in general should mark junctions...

    To underline DayTrip's comment, NH is ticketing for parking along I-93, although it is sporadic.

    Sandwich Dome lot is usually plowed and looked it (barring stuff at the entrance) when I drove past...

    R2R2R was 16. My notes have a presi traverse as about 17.5 (4:30a to 10p, IIRC; this was starting from Webster Cliff and doing all summits.)

    Guy's book just lists "1897: Up Mt. Lincoln from the west" and the next map marks it as "Lost 1901-1910". Around this time the trail up Liberty was cut in 1901, "soon destroyed by lumbering," and...

    Even down here it was fairly blustery NYD and nobody in New England can drive in any wind (plus I swear everybody out on the first was drunk.) In our previous location in mountainous New Mexico my...

    We'll see which actually opens first, this or the Bedford store. Of course they're still not managing to open one closer to me than Reading.

    NH got text to 911 about three years ago and made a big push to publicise it. Details at bottom of this page. It does require service with your carrier (voice 911 requires service but you don't need...

    The title is probably too conclusion-oriented, though. If a mod is willing to change it to "Cog requires permit for 'all users' of property" that would be appreciated. I couldn't think of appropriate...

    If the Cog wanted to make it clear you can cross without paying, they could have stated that explicitly. If they wanted to make it clear that crossing was going to require a permit, they also could...
  20. Cog claims you need to pay to cross the tracks

    The Cog is now selling a $10/day pass for any use of the railway property, including hiking on trails that cross the tracks.

    This storm is rain in Durham and heaps of snow in New Durham. It was supposed to bottom out at 41 here and actually hit 33, so the rain-snow line is probably a fair bit further south than forecast....

    More desk time and "crowdsourcing", less field work. Not sure I like that angle. The subtext is that usage is expanding across the range and needs support, and obviously they can't put the same...

    Alltrails is pretty unreliable. That number sounds like it might be the old trail before the Parkway was constructed. WMG has 3.8/3400' one-way (50' rev) for...
