    Microspikes rock

    I'll second what Oldmanwinter said. I can't say enough good things about microspikes. My only complaint is "Why did it take so long for some one to invent them!?" I bought microspikes for myself and...

    Wow. So it only took you two days to go from Big Island to Chesuncook Lake House at a leisurely pace? I thought it would have been more like 3 or 4 days. My Dad was thinking we would do it in 6 days...

    NY: Yeah, this will work too ...

    Creating a NY section won't solve this problem. (I'm not against a NY section, just thought I should point this out.)

    Same goal, different solution

    This 'categorization' problem is a common issue for sites like this ... Do you group by topic? Do you group by geographical location? How many forums do you create? How many nested levels of forums...

    I'd disagree with you on the "much more versatile" part. I have real crampons and have only used them once this Winter, and in that case I really should have used my snowshoes instead. With points...

    I went to Sentier des Caps a couple of years ago. It was excellent. Both groomed and backcountry trails. You can make a nice 3 day loop and stay in cabins at night. They have great views of the St....
