    Wife and I both like Portsmouth but we've gone several times before and it will likely be packed on a FRI afternoon. Looking for something a little more off the beaten path.

    That might be a good spot. I go to LL Bean corporate offices every July for work so I wasn't really considering Freeport because I was hoping to do something more unusual and/or go somewhere I've...

    That seems like it might fit the bill nicely. I'll add that to the list of possibilities. Thanks.
  5. Things To Do Heading Home From Baxter To CT

    My wife and I are going to Baxter via the North Gate in early September. Kind of a weird question but we're looking to break up the 7.5 hour ride home with some sort of fairly inexpensive...

    I finally got out there a couple of weeks ago for a day hike (Wild River, most of Moriah Brook and some sections of Highwater) and went back and camped a few days the following week with the wife at...

    Agreed. I turned 49 in July and the body definitely doesn't respond like it used to. I've had some horrible sleep nights out there in the woods this year. The Sea To Summit you reference is actually...

    I saw you mention that product in another post and made note of it. Would you recommend a bivy in a tent though? Overkill that could lead to condensation inside bag? If I recall I thought you mostly...

    Sleeping Pad Recommendation

    I've had a fairly dismal year on the sleeping pad front so I'm looking for recommendation for a pad for a side sleeper. I've had a Big Agnes Quad Core pad for a few years which was fine, not amazing,...

    There is about a mile gap between South end of FR 170 and North end of FR 700A but they look to orient and follow same contour nicely so that may well be connected. FR 700A definitely parallels...

    Thanks. I actually saw that this morning which reminded me I've been meaning to do that for awhile. He actually starts his loop from Ravine Lodge and doesn't speak much of the roads/parking situation...

    You are right. I've deleted my prior comment. While I do object to some of the statements and characterizations here, it is not productive to banter back and forth about them. Would be hypocritical...

    That's what I did for awhile and then I asked myself why I cared. Was I up there for the enjoyment and reward of the climb, the personal satisfaction of the effort, or a photo op? That last few...

    This was my general impression too. Parents who love the outdoors hoping their daughter will too and delighting in the fact that she does. I get what TEO is saying though. There are a lot of examples...

    I wasn't implying they didn't enjoy being outside. I think they just enjoy a different aspect of it (for example, the physical challenge and accomplishment of a 6 hour Pemi Loop versus two hours...

    The past two Springs I've been doing a lot of trips to the Catskills and find it pretty common there too. They also apparently like their fires because you can find a well trampled camp site with a...

    Yah $3 per bundle for a decent bundle (at least up to this year) is well worth it. I car camp a fair amount and $6-$9 a bundle for campground wood is pretty common. I never had a problem with the fee...
