    I agree, over the years Fabyans has been a reliable post hike place to dine but generally is quite crowded on weekends.

    Per the doc and other research, leaving the pins and hardware is not optimal. The bones regenerate to deal with the loads imposed on them. The hardware acts as reinforcing which means the bone does...

    Well for folks familiar with the Northland Restaurant in Berlin (AKA the Dairy Bar) its a sad time as it is closing. I think for most hikers it was just an extra 20 minutes north of where they wanted...

    One of our members found human bones on Mt Kancamagus. He recounted the story in post. I think the remains were eventually traced to a suicide.

    A general observation is given how poorly the US has responded to the more immediate Covid crisis, I do not hold out a lot of hope on a unified rapid response to AGW. :(

    Well one step towards independence. I ordered a knee crutch, took me longer to assemble and adjust then to start walking around the house without a crutch. Its a lot easier to move around as I can...

    No, It was renewable and then Mass changed the regulations to make it not renewable based on the flawed Manomet study. Some of NH plants had spent a couple of million to upgrade to new emissions...

    Well I do have 2 power plants less than 20 miles away, both are biomass plants. They can run 24/7 from locally sourced low grade wood. No worries about pipelines and worldwide demand for natural gas....

    I agree if you look at the end of the chain at your house but my statement was look at the total impact from when fossil comes out of the ground (including the prep work to get it out of the ground)...

    If you really want to talk burning wood I will gladly drift over to it. I converted a coal fired generating station to biomass (wood) in North Carolina 15 years ago 9mostly forest residuals and small...

    I do not agree that this is a primary source of opposition but agree it is one of many. Politics makes strange bed fellows and this is definitely the case on this project. Conservations groups with a...
