    My bad. I thought we were still discussing the alternate route ChrisB highlighted on map as a bypass of Hillary Step. And back to my original point, spontaneously deciding to take an alternate route...

    Translation: The part-time "mountaineers" in these groups could not do this. Some of these people do not even know how to use crampons until they show up at base camp. I seriously doubt they can pull...

    Are there a lot of instances where people intentionally bail out into these areas? Seems like the vast majority of rescues do not involve these areas. Do the people who deliberately bail into these...

    Ha! I hope you weren't treading water in the middle of Kinsman Pond with your arm in the air. I have to admit I used to be really bad about not hiking when Bruins or Patriots were on. NFL Sundays...

    Any recommendations on those? In the event I go up without my wife that would certainly be high on my list.

    Thanks for the info. That definitely looks like a hell of a spot. I have never stayed in a lean to. Are you allowed to pitch a tent inside a lean to or do you have to use some sort of bivy set up,...

    Baxter State Park From The North Gate

    For some unexplainable reason my wife really enjoyed her first trip to Baxter a few weeks ago (she is not a hiker and is a magnet for all types of biting insects). On the drive home we talked about...

    Old days? I still do that. When I hit trail I'm in airplane mode until I get out......with the occasional exception to catch a Bruins playoff game in Spring if I can get a signal. :)

    Didn't she leave for Millinocket on 7/8 (Thread #22)? I think much effort is being expended for nothing at this point. Of course that's fun too. :p

    Of all the wildlife I've seen at Baxter I have yet to see a raccoon. Didn't really dawn on me until you mentioned it. I've seen more pine martens there than raccoons. Hopefully this Spring's activity...

    The campground crowd was fine. I was surprised how few sites and lean to's were taken actually for 4th of July. Tue night only 2 of the walk in sites (counting us) and no lean to's were taken. THU AM...

    Do you know specifically though if Baxter has less staff this year/under the new director? I don't feel like I saw less people overall. It just seems like they weren't doing what they normally did....
  16. Is New Baxter State Park Director Hurting Operations?

    I did my annual trip to Baxter this week, staying at Roaring Brook walk in sites from Mon to today. I have to say the operation did not seem as crisp as it has been on past visits.

    The most...

    Keep in mind texting isn't just idle nonsense with friends. You could text critical details about an incident, medical status, location, what you might need, etc. It can have a very real and valuable...

    I started with a ResqueLink as my first piece of electronics after my research (2013 season I believe). Eventually got a GPS, then a SPOT, then ditched the SPOT for an InReach. The SPOT was most...

    Cool videos. However they are from MAR 2009. Are they still relevant with the updates in technology? For example, the video mentions that a cell phone doesn't know where it is. I think just about...

    Totally agree with that. The self reliance, skills and improvising is as rewarding as the hiking and the views. Much more impressed with alpine style climbs versus expedition style climbs at every...

    Yes that made me chuckle. Isn't the record like 6.5 hours now or something ridiculous? You'd think a NH F&G person, even an intern, would know that this hike is regularly attempted and completed in a...

    That route looks impossible without carrying lots of extra gear, etc. Don't forget, this is at like 28,000 ft and the weight of ropes, cams and other protection would probably kill most people at...

    Isn't that the whole problem on the South route? There is no other realistic way to traverse that section so everyone bottle necks in it? Breaking out of line probably means plummeting to your death.
