    There is logging going on in that area this Summer and the road to Caribou Pond has been closed during the week, but has been open for the weekend. I haven't been down that road in a couple years,...

    I hiked Pierce today. Higher Summits forecast was for 20 to 50 mph winds, or so the sign said at the HC. Nary a breeze during the hike and just a bare whisper at the summit. The first time I hiked...

    $23.5 million? I thought the Berry's wanted to sell it for around $7 to $10 million? And another $38 million in investments after the purchase? Its going to be 100 years before they break even.

    Janet Mills is a bought and paid for politician. All you have to do is follow the money.

    Most mining is fairly damaging to the environment, or at least the processing part of it is. too many...

    Nope, you aren't wrong. Having never used a pump style filter, I can honestly say that its not irritating using a Sawyer Squeeze. No mechanical parts to break. There's a reason the majority of the...

    I've been using the same sawyer squeeze for about 5 years now. I'm on my third 2 liter bag for it. They do start to leak after a year or two. I filter water for myself and my GF. I've never carried...

    Ironically, the one hut that is easiest to get to on a snowmobile, Grand Falls, is closed. It had a water pipe burst and soaked the charge controller/heat controller, in the basement. Its been...

    Just a feeling, but all the negativity being generated by CMP lying to its customers is going to get the project canceled. No one in the state trusts them.

    The huts run primarily on Propane generators in the Winter. The generators automatically come on if the charge starts to get too low. It runs for two hours minimum and then until the batteries are...

    The Carriage rd is being used now as a logging road. One of the tribes is logging out of there. Poplar Falls hut is on leased native tribe land. When the site was selected for the hut, nobody knew...

    Do they really think condo owners are part of the distressed community? :confused:

    Just got back from caretaker training this weekend at Flagstaff. Pretty interesting to see behind the curtain on what it takes to actually run one of the huts. As of now, all 4 are open for...

    If they take off Tecumseh, I hope they add Hight or Guyot to replace it. It wouldn't matter to me, since I've hiked them, too. Now that 52 with a view list has some summits that are overgrowing....

    That's a weird one-off. My friends and I hiking over towards mt Shaw ran into a pack of hunting dogs. They seemed more interested in licking our hands than hunting. We ran into the exasperated Hunter...

    Didn't the family follow the future cog track up? I'm pretty sure the railway was under construction and they followed it part way up the mountain.

    I have an Eddie Bauer -30 bag. It's overkill for when I Winter camp. If I had to do it again, I'd get a 0* bag and supplement with a quilt. Coldest I've slept in it was -15 and was nice and toasty....

    It seems that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. Why make the jag towards Beattie pond to begin with? It's like it was intentionally done to create such a situation.

    The bear at owlshead must be fairly recent. We took our packs up after dropping our tent and sleeping bag. We camped at the base of the slide, no issues with bears or mice. This was early August, I...

    I believe all the huts are on leased land. Poplar Stream, I know, is leased from one of the tribes. The huts themselves are pretty valuable. Grand Falls gets a lot of traffic from snowmobiles in the...
