    North Pack blueberries bushes are loaded and about 1/3 ripe as of Monday. Local picking in the Weare area is even better. Probably the best year I've seen in the last 15yrs or so. :)

    I don't care for the term "denial" in this context. Or denier. It's loaded with innuendo that's unfair to all of us as a group. Denial suggests we've been shown conclusive proof that we're harming...

    Deer are funny that way. Very seldom can you just walk up to one, although I did it a couple of times.

    Once, when trail running in a pine grove, I came within 40 ft of two deer browsing by a...

    I wasn't speaking of science in the abstract there. I was referring to the particular science the author was informed by, but didn't cite.

    Well, I would say that there's a grain of truth in that opinion, but Hikerbrian is much closer to the truth. Stating an opinion in the NYT on a film, or album, or ice cream flavor is one thing....

    As has been pointed out, the article does have serious flaws, but the premise and commentary lead to some interesting questions.

    Couldn't agree more. I took a look at my waistline a few weeks ago and it was enough to make me hit the local trails 5 days a week. Conditions have ranged from well-packed snow (beautiful for running...

    Weather Channel hyping the story? I'm seeing reports of 35-car pileup, which is bad enough. Hopefully no one is seriously injured.

    The only nudity I've witnessed on the trail was purely accidental. A young woman didn't account for trail runners catching up to her nature break three feet off the trail.

    Nice trip report! Fall is my favorite season at the Giant. I've found that going up the Chin a few times is a great tune-up for bigger hikes up north.

    Can't wait to get up there and enjoy some of this. Is it just me, or is this happening early this year? I usually come up mid-October for foliage.

    I usually carry a cell phone, map, and compass for navigation. Rarely a guidebook, due to weight/bulk. The ideal guidebook would be regional and correspond to the map, and be lighter and more...
