    The person wallowing was the trail runner; singular they.

    It doesn't sound like the climbers ultimately needed assistance.

    This is pretty similar to the statewide mandate that was already in effect.

    The directions for my Whisperlite (~12 years old, and neither part of the name is true) say "A brief soccer-ball sized flame is normal."

    Cutler River drainage in winter, so USFS is responding agency, not NHFG. I don't think USFS has a policy of charging for rescue.

    You've seen my setup in the field. I have an 85L Osprey something-or-other (Aether? Probably aether.) I got a -20 REI-branded down bag that was pretty reasonably priced to start with, then on sale,...

    The Bridgers are what we recommend in the AMC Boston winter hiking program for anybody who doesn't want the Toundras for whatever reason.

    Which repair center did you work with? I have a heel strap that broke off and needs replacing and was dragging my feet because I didn't want to pay to ship the whole thing. If they can send parts for...

    I've used a Buff for most of the summer, easy to pull up when passing people and provides a little protection. Fold it over for two layers and it's pretty good.

    It goes into the SAR fund which funds equipment, training, etc. I don't know if the OT budget for the COs comes out of that or not.

    Not "fairly inexpensive", but I use Ourdoor Research Revel mitts. Haven't used them a lot (I don't hike a lot in 30 degree rain) but they definitely do the trick.

    The brook gets pretty braided in there with plenty of tributaries, lots of "do I cross this one or follow the bank?" Probably depends on how much rain lately (and maybe it's easier out than in), but...

    Right now nobody can ski in Vermont; there's no snow. The map is updated every week; a few weeks ago basically all of NH was fine; things will be different again (how, who knows) by ski season.
