    In practice the operational definition of "recklessness" emerges from case law and it's whatever you can convince a jury. The law is, frankly, a whole lot less black-and-white, clear-cut than people...

    The woman from Los Alamos appears to have an MIT affiliation. (The only connection I have is that I've probably been in the swimming pool at the same time as her.) My guess is grad students taking a...

    I haven't seen any updates that the Mass closure of AT tentsites has been lifted, although since winter usage isn't heavy they may have decided not to say anything one way or the other.

    The person wallowing was the trail runner; singular they.

    It doesn't sound like the climbers ultimately needed assistance.

    The directions for my Whisperlite (~12 years old, and neither part of the name is true) say "A brief soccer-ball sized flame is normal."

    You've seen my setup in the field. I have an 85L Osprey something-or-other (Aether? Probably aether.) I got a -20 REI-branded down bag that was pretty reasonably priced to start with, then on sale,...

    The Bridgers are what we recommend in the AMC Boston winter hiking program for anybody who doesn't want the Toundras for whatever reason.

    I've used a Buff for most of the summer, easy to pull up when passing people and provides a little protection. Fold it over for two layers and it's pretty good.

    Right now nobody can ski in Vermont; there's no snow. The map is updated every week; a few weeks ago basically all of NH was fine; things will be different again (how, who knows) by ski season.
