    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...

    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 have a S2S comfort light. As long as I don't overinflate it, its very comfy. The GF and I used to use to separate sleeping pads, but now we use an Exped Hyperlite Synmat Duo. Her side had a couple...

    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...

    I think a couple more weeks. I'm headed up to Acadia for 5 days in the middle of October. I'm expecting foliage will be just past peak at that point, but tourist season is well past peak. The Park is...

    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...
