    Ah, despite the plank sometimes in one's own eye... (whether vs weather)

    Sorry. Looking forward to hiking season, and looking for lists - or even redlining. :)

    Monadnock - Pumpelly Trail 8-Apr-2017

    There's still a foot-plus of snow on the trail. It's packed down, of course. Ledges are partially exposed. There's plenty of opportunity to get your shoes wet and muddy on the way in. Bring...

    Gray Knob water source

    Anyone know if the Gray Knob water source is flowing/broken out? Wondering how much fuel to budget. (I know the caretaker tries to keep it open.)

    Haha, you're right! Lesson learned: don't charge a hill with skate poles! They do bend.

    Meta lesson: it's darned hard to find shops that rent backcountry gear for people outside of one sigma.

    Darn. And all along I thought my old kayak was the perfect boat. :) I guess it might not be the best platform for launching Tridents.

    I can always buy cheap used equipment for the Sherbourne, so I'll drop that. But yeah, I see that the tradeoffs are heavier, fatter hourglass boards give more control while lighter straighter double...
  9. backcountry skis and boots for the trails in the Whites

    I'm retiring my twenty-five year old telemark skis for skis that will handle New England backcountry trails a little better. I know I need:

    - waxless base
    - decent control

    I found the same thing. The place I rented from last weekend had really tall poles (skate poles, maybe) and one bent at about 30 degrees on me while I was charging a hill.

    I've been resisting,...

    If you can afford it, or find them on sale, the Arcteryx Theta AR looks prefect. It's cut very long (33 inches) and weighs less than a pound. I'm not sure how well they pack, but I'll check if REI...

    gear question: rain jackets for tall guys?

    I'm looking for a packable, lightweight, and breathable rain jacket. There's lots of options, right? But I really need a size large-tall (6'3", 175#), which seems to be a tough find.
