    Yes -- it helps eliminate food waste. Better to sell it to someone who will eat it instead of bin it and cart it off/down the mountain.

    Thank you for this review/recommendation -- would much rather repair something that still has life in it, than toss and replace.

    I'll stay home to do some work, during the day.

    (I might do a night hike, as well, for sunrise somewhere.)

    Thank you for the heads-up.

    Looks like Northern Pass, in its current incarnation, is toast -- the NH Supreme Court just upheld the SEC opinion to not re-hear the project.

    Notwithstanding the most recent Forest Service maps, I believe that the Rainbow Trail is pretty much right on the boundary -- the few times I've been on that trail, the boundary markers are on trees...

    If you have the time, and the town doesn't mind, maintaining those trails (pretty much in your back yard) could be fun. And, rewarding.



    Please do -- the map on the town's web site could use a...

    You could section-hike portions of the AT -- it runs southwest to northeast of a series of ridges about 30 miles south of where you'll be.

    I was going to recommend The Priest, but if I recall it's pretty far north of the OP's planned exit (Virginia border) from the parkway. Also, having done this hike a couple of times in the past few...

    Yes -- and the author, Tom Wessels, is available to present a short slideshow based on his book, followed up with multi-hour, hands-on presentation in the woods. Pretty cool.

    Yes -- agreed -- any of these, even on weekends in the summer, and you might have the place to yourself. Certainly mid-week in non-summer months, and you're likely to see no one else.

    And, as you alluded to, conditions up and down West Baldpate are not always so snowshoe-friendly.

    Congratulations.

    Simply because I leave the GPS in the pack doesn't mean that it's not turned on and recording a track; it is. I believe that one of OP's concerns was that some folks tend to do nothing but look at...
