    When I first got into Winter hiking several years back I really had no clue how to buy snowshoes so I went by the typical website recommendations to go by weight with gear. I'm 6'3" and tip the...

    I did that trail a few years back and remember the lower sections being very lightly tread and covered in leaves and other debris. I don't recall ever losing the trail but it was not nearly as well...

    Yah I wondered if this spot was going to be more of a local party spot than a "normal" campground. Is there an actual caretaker there to enforce the rules? I'd definitely book a reservation before I...

    Yes the sites are very close looking at the satellite view. I don't plan on doing much other than sleeping there, cooking, etc. and we'll be there midweek so I was hoping it would be lightly attended...

    I'm not looking to paddle the rivers. I was just looking for a base to hit Umbagog and possibly other lakes in the area. We actually had reservations at a remote site on Umbabgog but I wound up...

    Mollidgewock Campground In Errol

    So I'm trying to cobble together a last minute trip to Northern NH in about 10 days. My wife's schedule is pretty up in the air so I don't want to book anything and then get stuck not being able to...

    Chris's profile here does indicate he is the Sphinx Trail adopter, although I don't know if that is still current. I remember thinking that trail needed someone in his level of physical fitness to...

    I wasn't complaining about it, just stating the condition. It is a hell of a remote area so kudos to whoever is taking that on (was it CDailey7779? I seem to remember him saying that was his trail in...

    Last year the section past the junction of Wamsutta/Buttress and tree line had a ton of blowdowns. The area around the junction of Sphinx was particularly confusing because trees fell in just the...

    I kayaked at Mansfield Hollow a couple of times after that rain event and closure. It is crazy how high the water was. I can see why there are gates to close the road on either side because if any...

    It looked like most of the rain funneled right into that area. Here in Eastern NE CT it was a total non issue - not much rain and very little wind. Literally almost any of the thunderstorms we've had...

    A lot of that spike had to do with the tornado and storms on THU, not the "hurricane". That merely topped things off. The Quinebaug gauge near my house barely budged from Sunday's rain but is still...

    I'm a die hard paper map guy but I have drifted pretty far along into the digital side of things with my phone. It is just too damn easy and convenient in such a small form factor with apps like...

    Yah it seemed obvious on the map but the lack of a launch icon had me wondering if there was some sort of issue there with ledge or a swamp or something. Excellent. Thanks.

    This feels like maybe the absolute dumbest thing I've heard someone say in any of these rescues. Talk about denial of your own incompetence. "I had state of the art advanced capabilities but...

    Lake Matagamon Access

    Is Lake Matagamon accessible from Trout Brook Farm for kayak launching? My map doesn't show a boat launch or canoe carry icon but it appears to be a sizable stream or cove leading about 1/2 mile to...

    Yah this is a weird one. Was it foggy? How do you miss your intended trail that badly when all the terrain is laid out in full view in front of you? And signs are not exactly lacking in that area,...

    OK. Thanks all. I wanted to be sure I didn't miss anything. I've honestly tuned out to all the latest developments. Everywhere I go for work still requires me to wear a mask regardless of vaccination...

    Vaccination Required At Baxter???

    I did that crossing back on 9/4/16. The USGS 01074520 EAST BRANCH PEMIGEWASSET RIVER AT LINCOLN gauge was only 55 cfs that day according to my notes (it was shockingly low) and the crossing was a dry...

    You can always just come and paddle around in my basement. First time flooding (about 2 inches - not disastrous) in the 18 years we've been here. Northeast CT is so saturated and the storms keep...

    I can't say I've been to that exact spot of late but it is extremely dry in general up there right now so if that spring is not a reliable one I wouldn't be planning on it as an option. I can't think...
