    An essential thing to do if you are cultivating your personal brand.
  3. Rattlesnake Island Trails -- Lake Winnipesaukee.

    Anyone ever hike on Rattlesnake island?

    I don't see trails on Gaia or AllTrails maps and wonder if getting up the hill is a bushwhack.

    He's been gone a long time.

    He must have registered w the Park re where he planned to stay and when. If he started at RB but never showed at Russell that narrows the search area considerably.

    Here's an interesting article that describes an accident caused by cellphone use.

    Set on the Isle of Skye, it describes a hiker's fall and its aftermath on a trek of the windswept Cullin Ridge.

    OK. The sign in your post gives no indication that the nature of the trail the hiker is currently on is about to change and quite possibly become difficult to follow. That's my point.

    Yup, new gear is a joy. Usually less heavy, better made and more innovative than our 1970-80s issue stuff.

    That trail seems like a good candidate for a few ladders. I remember hanging off tree roots going up/down the steep section below the summit.

    Speaking of canoes....

    Do the Dartmouth kids still haul one up to Lakes for a relaxing fat-water paddle each summer?

    Or have they switched to inflatable standup paddle boards!

    You can, but it's one more thing.

    For most folks cellphones have replaced cameras, music systems, dedicated auto GPS devices and in some cases maps and compass.

    But not headlamps (yet).

    I believe you can still rent canoes at Trout Brook.

    No one has mentioned noting the sun's position in the sky as another point of orientation. Very handy to use when going gets thick.

    I wonder what their hike plan was. Where did they plan to use the tent on the traverse? Dropping off the ridge at night? AT bootleg sites?
