    I hadn't read that but I'll keep in mind. Other than clams I do like seafood and eat it often in the Summer.

    JoshandBaron and OldEric I am on Doxycycline Hyclate, which I assume is what you are calling "Doxy". I usually have a pretty good tan at this time of year and don't generally burn unless I spend many...

    I'll keep that in mind although I generally do not like to night hike a trail I haven't previously traveled at least once. Still have only one VT hike under my belt.

    I've been driving all over New England for work the past few weeks and haven't noticed any real effects other than brightness. I guess the issue is that the meds make skin very sensitive and it can...

    Yes Site #36 shows as a 0.3 mile walk and the lean to a bit farther but the map indicates they have their own toilets. Site #36 looks like it is right on the water. Must be pretty awesome but I...

    Any favorite sites? I love the walk ins at Roaring Brook, especially #16 at the end of the path. Anything comparable at South Pond? I do like space between sites. I would never stay at the RB sites...

    I am enjoying my first episode with lyme disease and one of the major side effects of the prescription they gave me is to avoid direct sun/exposure to sun. So that is no problem in July right? :(...

    My bad. I thought we were still discussing the alternate route ChrisB highlighted on map as a bypass of Hillary Step. And back to my original point, spontaneously deciding to take an alternate route...

    Translation: The part-time "mountaineers" in these groups could not do this. Some of these people do not even know how to use crampons until they show up at base camp. I seriously doubt they can pull...

    Are there a lot of instances where people intentionally bail out into these areas? Seems like the vast majority of rescues do not involve these areas. Do the people who deliberately bail into these...

    Ha! I hope you weren't treading water in the middle of Kinsman Pond with your arm in the air. I have to admit I used to be really bad about not hiking when Bruins or Patriots were on. NFL Sundays...

    Thanks for the info. That definitely looks like a hell of a spot. I have never stayed in a lean to. Are you allowed to pitch a tent inside a lean to or do you have to use some sort of bivy set up,...

    Baxter State Park From The North Gate

    For some unexplainable reason my wife really enjoyed her first trip to Baxter a few weeks ago (she is not a hiker and is a magnet for all types of biting insects). On the drive home we talked about...

    Old days? I still do that. When I hit trail I'm in airplane mode until I get out......with the occasional exception to catch a Bruins playoff game in Spring if I can get a signal. :)

    Didn't she leave for Millinocket on 7/8 (Thread #22)? I think much effort is being expended for nothing at this point. Of course that's fun too. :p

    Of all the wildlife I've seen at Baxter I have yet to see a raccoon. Didn't really dawn on me until you mentioned it. I've seen more pine martens there than raccoons. Hopefully this Spring's activity...

    The campground crowd was fine. I was surprised how few sites and lean to's were taken actually for 4th of July. Tue night only 2 of the walk in sites (counting us) and no lean to's were taken. THU AM...

    Do you know specifically though if Baxter has less staff this year/under the new director? I don't feel like I saw less people overall. It just seems like they weren't doing what they normally did....
  25. Is New Baxter State Park Director Hurting Operations?

    I did my annual trip to Baxter this week, staying at Roaring Brook walk in sites from Mon to today. I have to say the operation did not seem as crisp as it has been on past visits.
