    I have some April and May goals, also with my experienced dog. April and May, if cold enough, might be doable in spikes, or it might be soft or rotting snow. Too early to tell, unfortunately. ...

    I started out wondering, but then I searched NE Trail Conditions and found a bunch more posts, so I dismissed the troll idea rather quickly, but it did go into way more detail than the average post...

    Lots of people do it as a loop rather than an out-and-back (out-and-back to Jefferson.) I've done this solo twice (well, once with my dog.) I've done all the Presidential and Franconia peaks solo...

    Donít confuse green squares (reputation) with likes. But yes, that was the effect of reputation and I believe when it was shut off that Mohamed pointed out that they had encouraged puerile behavior....

    I do mostly agree with you. I'll share with everybody how I generally approach social media.

    First, I do share major family milestones, so my distant blood...

    I think the caveat that nobody saying here, DayTrip, is that people are probably not as prepared as they could be to survive an unplanned night. When conditions are moderate, the consequences are...

    I solo often, or with Gryffin, in all four seasons. I've done the single season winter 48 twice. In 168 winter hikes, 40 of which were solo, I believe I have been truly alone (nobody else on my...

    I have several pairs. These are my favorites. I don't usually bring these if I feel I'll be carrying them a lot (take the MSR Denali Ascents), but there are always times where they are needed in...

    Have they stopped "recognizing" the "old summit" on Owl's Head yet? For sure any changes will be adopted slowly.

    Right now, you can walk past the Zealand Spur, en route to Guyot or West Bond. You can skip the West Bond spur and get to Bond as well. Neither is a bushwhack or bizzare contortion.

    The greatest "loss" of Tecumseh as a 4K will be to the 4K Every Day pursuers. It's both a short, protected hike, and closer than most to the population.

    If your list is proclaimed to be based on accuracy (which I think the AMC lists are), then I agree. This probably means the death of South Hancock and Lincoln, as well as Tecumseh, and no Guyot.

    I think this has been outlined in all sports. For example, the more protective gear we add to full-contact sports (hockey, football) the harder the hits get.
