    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...

    The recent construction on 302 in Fryeburg finally forced me to find a way around it. I can take ME160 and get on US302 again in Conway....

    I hiked over to mountain pond, thinking to stay in the shelter, but a young couple had their huge cabin tent set up in it. We found another spot to set up our tarp.

    The AMC also maintains the trails we all hike on. I believe purchasing from the huts also supports the AMC and therefore trails? That's how I look at it, anyway. I don't mind the huts at Mizpah, LOC...

    I'd be pissed if I died while hiking Owl's Head. I would want a glorious death on a majestic mountaintop. 62 is not that far from 57, my age.

    Condolences to his family

    The new logo says coma. It's horrible. Does nothing to represent the outdoors or being outdoors. It does look like a trans bathroom symbol. Coma.

    Well, if they paid state taxes to NH, that's more money to the state, right? I'm pretty sure the AMC has too much money to spend foolishly after the new logo was unveiled.

    Thats good news. I've used Mr Ellozy's site long before I knew of VFFT, when I first started planning on bagging the NH48. It's a great resource.
