    Tom, of course this is subjective, but I disagree. I think the reason a lot of folks pursue a particular list is tradition, not precision.

    So I like that the Adirondack 46 list stays the same. ...

    I skimmed the letter (it's quite long and detailed). On a fast read, the recommendations make sense to me. (I particularly agree with the emphasis on building opportunity for youth and veterans.) ...

    Same over here in the Adirondacks. 7" of nice snow and 3 degrees this morning. And the same down south over here - mostly rain and slush from Albany down, so visitors may be surprised that winter is...

    We often disagree, but this is a good analysis. Thanks. I hope some people at various government agencies can think clearly like this.

    I would watch your credit card - site is very hokey looking. Looks like one of the fly-by-night Chinese scam sites. Might want to shop with a prepaid card.

    ^^^This.^^^

    The value in this is a human person to meet people, and act as a trailhead educator. The lawyer written pledge documents are just lawyer BS that will drive good people away.

    Changes all the time. I like paper maps, but they don't keep up with those kinds of changes very well. The NOAA site is probably the definitive resource.

    Over here in the Adirondacks our traditional "46" list includes Couchsacraga, one of our longest and toughest hikes, at 3820. Lots of gratuitous up and down, and a big swamp, just to get there.
