    Here is a youtube video that names a few: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YD-WFoLW50, but quite frankly I would not want to buy any one of them. Instead, I would focus on getting a good quality...

    I guess we shouldn't expect challenges to this record for at least a year as 2020 is a leap year! :)

    I forgot to mention in my prior post that maps relying on user-contributed data are also subject to vandalism, so that also should be kept in mind when planning.

    Maps can be quite different than what really is the current state of the trails. New trails get added, existing ones get rerouted, old ones get abandoned and fall out of use. For example, I have...

    I love maps and over the years I have built up a nice collection, but like JToll, I no longer use paper maps for driving. I still carry hiking paper maps with me but I find that I use them less and...

    Printed maps & guidebooks is a declining business. I bet by now all non-profits that relied on sales of hiking maps realize that they won't get too much revenue from them in the long run. There is...

    I bet there is a good number of hikers now who have never carried a paper map on a trai or owned a standalone camera. The convenience of a smartphone seems to outweigh safety concerns for many.

    Perhaps that would be one more good reason to go and do some hiking in the Alps - a friend suggested that we do Tour du Mont Blanc ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tour_du_Mont_Blanc ) but given that...

    Did you take a picture of the snake? There are several species in this general area, and we have seen timber rattle snakes too, so it's good idea to be careful. Here is a picture from a hike that I...

    I tried to mentally go over our hikes last week and I think we always got a reply while hiking in the Whites (it's just that most of the time we said "hi" first), while Acadia NP was a different kind...
  13. Is greeting other folks on trail with "Hi!" part of hiking etiquette?

    Last week my wife joined me on a couple of hikes and she pointed out to me that many hikers either did not say anything when passing us, or when we said "Hi!" some of them replied back while others...

    I suspect drones can be a lot more useful if they carry some device that can ping lost person's cell phone and home in on its location in order to narrow down the search area. I'm not sure if that is...

    Somehow I have a feeling that this was not a typical family hike. While we don't have all the details, I suspect the grandfather was the enabler thanks to whom the boys could bag highest peaks in...

    After reading Union Leader article I don't have any issues related to family separating (intentional at the urging of grandfather) or Mr. Clark's age (hiking daily 20 miles probably keeps him in...
