    My approach is to ignore weight at the complete pack level. For putting together a pack (summer day hike to winter overnight) is driven by a checklist of items. The goal is to have enough to be safe...

    What you say makes perfect sense and is a very wise insight by the club.

    That said, there really isn't any commercial resource for hikers along that section of Rt 2 from Gorham all the way to Twin...

    Wow. The Lowe family has had a foot print there for a very long time. This is a passing similar to the Old Man falling down in some respects.

    Correct. It won't.

    I think it's correct to avoid using terms that evoke memories of actual deep harm. We accept that it would be offensive to refer to a lopsided sports victory as a lynching....

    Peakbagger,

    My sense of the old guard isn't so much as just go, but rather wait till things consolidate in the spring and avoid days after wind loading and dustings that could produce sloughs.

    This right here is what I've come to with respect to winter stoves. I'd trust a Trangia in their large nesting stand/winscreen (with preheater) for the same reason. Really nothing to...
