    We did a traverse of the Gunks a while back. 23 miles in 11 hours, on a very hot and humid day. Laurie had severe blisters!

    Look up French Louie Loop.

    Tongue Range has a loop.

    The Catskills have some good loops, if you want me to list them?

    Nothing stops you from parking at Denning for free and doing the hike from there. It's more or less the same hiking mileage, and less elevation from there as well.

    Ha! I just went to Dollar General and bought 4 items, for $4.00.

    NOT!

    The total was $26.00!

    That may be, but in previous years, the permit was totally free for the user.
  18. Blue Hole permit (Table and Peekamoose parking) update

    ​Read it and weep. (Or maybe not, it will reduce overcrowding).

    I think I'll use Denning for Table and Peekamoose from now on, especially if it involves $$.

    There is a discrepancy in the...

    The parking areas discussed here can be used to access 9 46R peaks (or more if you're a super hiker). So, it's roughly comparable to the number of peaks frequently hiked inside Baxter State Park.

    Wow! Only 1-3" reported in the Cats, and expected to melt off pretty quickly. (Not that we were totally snow free yet, but close).

    We use plastic containers quite a bit.

    They keep things from getting squished, and they are light and reusable. I would not put liquids in them, but that's what Nalgenes or thermoses are for.
