    So much for finishing in a day. I guess he'll have to give it another go.

    Raven, thanks for sharing that great story. The Traveler loop is a special hike. Of course it's no fun to have to deal with car trouble, but you obviously handled it well. Hitchhiking can certainly...

    For me, the trueness of my mountain experience is almost always inversely proportional to the number of people that I see. But that's just my view, which is why I would be hesitant to set regulations...

    I wouldn't jump to that conclusion. Particularly if you're looking to save weight, what to bring/what not to bring is an educated guess and gamble at the best. It may be that he was unprepared, but...

    In general, I agree with you that anyone who wishes to climb should be able to do so, but with the caveat that you should have a minimum level of experience, from which we can infer skill, and...

    Respectfully, I think that you're missing the point of John Oliver's piece, which was pointing out the absurdity that so many unqualified people are allowed to climb, threatening the lives of...

    I accidentally did this when I first did the Tripyramids in the naughts. I was on the trail early mideweek, and IIRC, didn't see another soul. It was a great hike, and coming from someone who is not...

    Dave.m, all of your points are good. I would agree that they made at least a couple of errors, which as we often see in analysis of rescues and recoveries, compound. My problem is the first the...

    Based on his quotes in the Union Leader article he was not in bad trouble 30 minutes into the hike, he was simply moving more slowly than his grandchildren, and didn't want to hold them up.

    From the aforementioned Union Leader article, "About a half-hour into the hike, Clark said he told his grandsons to go ahead." We can infer that they were on the Tuckerman Ravine Trail before the...

    On an aside to the main topic, this is a good reason to carry left-over, post-surgery pain meds in your first aid kit. Many years ago, I was on a hike and we had almost the exact same scenario,...

    Wait, are we supposed to be hiking with poles now? What's wrong with hiking in sneakers?

    Like your comments about the 80 year-old hiker, I think you're reading an awful lot into the situation....

    I'm not so sure of that. Here's the data from the Stake on Mt. Mansfield, which is next to the Toll Road at 3,900'. In the '60s and '70s, only '68–'69 surpassed '18–'19, in terms of the high-water...
