    Uh because it was fun. Route I took involved about 4 miles above tree line. As far as Gore Tex mitts, that is actually what I had and they were an epic fail. To be fair they were my Winter gloves and...

    I hadn't even thought of that. Makes a lot of sense. I'll check it out. Thanks for the idea.

    Absolutely. 2-3 times a year I usually go out intentionally in awful conditions just to stay sharp on managing myself in that kind of weather and make sure if I ever NEEDED to function in that...

    I think these were the ones I had initially read about! Thanks for jolting my memory. I think the reason I didn't get was the need to seam seal and the ML product video listing one of the...

    I have had those OR Mitts on the radar for awhile now. The sticker price has been the only deterrent. Maybe I'll finally pull the trigger next time someone starts emailing % off coupons. :)

    Rain Gloves

    Yesterday I went up and did a cruise in the wind and driving rain on Adams and was reminded of something I've wanted to add to the gear list for quite awhile: some sort of rain gloves. I've tried...

    I generally use the USGS 01074520 EAST BRANCH PEMIGEWASSET RIVER AT LINCOLN, NH (https://waterdata.usgs.gov/nh/nwis/uv?site_no=01074520) river gauge to assess those crossings. In Summer, generally a...

    I hiked in Wild River Wilderness the SUN of Columbus Day Weekend and saw about 30 people on a relatively short loop (one was a group of 9 on a multi-day trip). Almost all of the people I talked to,...

    I did originally but don't now yet still have that issue. Based on sizing charts it would seem maybe my hands are disproportionally longer than they are wide. My knuckle circumference in most sizes...

    It isn't that they wear out. The seams fail which is what I find odd. It's obviously something about my hands because I've had several different brands do it. I think it might have something to do...

    I came across those looking too and they are close to what I want. I think I've looked at just about every type of glove out there at this point. I think I am actually going to try a pair of golf...

    I've tried a couple of Black Diamond models and they do have a good fit but I blew the seams out on both pairs. Didn't leave me feeling very confident about their stuff.

    I need to revisit the running products. I had researched cycling products awhile back but never pulled the trigger on anything. I'll check out those New Balance gloves. Thanks.

    I'm going to miss the epic Summer weather we had this year and all the perfect weather days I caught but the idea of breaking out the Winter gear is kind of tempting too.

    Liner Glove Recommendation

    I've been searching for the "right" liner glove for many years now and can't seem to come up with exactly what I want. Admittedly, I am being very particular and what I want may well not exist but if...

    Stupid question: Isn't back country/ "at large" camping allowed in the Adirondacks below 4,000 ft? Did they get rid of that with COVID? I think I'd rather take a meat tenderizing mallet to my own...
