    Hello from an old friend

    Hello VFTT!
    I haven't logged in for a few years, but I just got an email notification about a PM from someone looking for info on Maine peaks. So, while I'm here logged in, I thought I'd say "Hello"...

    For those of you who are still limiting your visits to the Park because of past bitterness, I suggest you take a fresh look at the policies. BSP has evolved (e.g., solo winter day use).

    And for...

    If it's raining, don't bother. Go elsewhere. Not b/c it's slick, but b/c the views are stupendous. There are plenty of excellent rainy day hikes in the Park, but the Katahdinough is not one of them....

    I'm unclear if VFTT has become Tim's site or if it is still community-"owned"??? If the latter, why not post a poll and let the membership speak as to whether such info should be posted on the site...

    I totally agree with that. Unless I missed it, I don't think anyone has suggested replacing critical trail info (e.g., distance, arrows, names) with QR codes. If you go look at the pictures of...
  12. Baxter State Park Update - Many trails closed

    I just found out that much of BSP is now closed to hiking due to the crazy early season warm up. Abol Slide is mostly snow free (there was about 18 inches two weeks ago) and the Tableland is...

    Perhaps irrelevant, but I would wager that 35% is pretty close to the percentage of hikers in the WMNF at any given time during the warm months that actually have, and know how to use, a map and...

    Me too, MJ. Well played.

    I think the presumption that newbies are the ones who get into trouble is preposterous. I've hiked with many people who would consider themselves seasoned veterans but I...

    Found: skis on Katahdin

    If you lost a pair of XC skis on the Katahdin Tableland, let me know. I might just be able to make your day.

    Yes you can. The Tote Rd. from Togue Pond gatehouse to Matagamon is a publicly accessible snowmobile route in winter, if you are so inclined. It's a lot of fun on skis, though. :)
