    The shelters are long gone, removed sometime in the 70s I believe. I didn't mean to send you on a wild goose chase looking for them, I just assumed you knew about them. I figure there must be water...

    Climbing the 46 is an entirely different and I believe more rewarding, experience than the NH4K. And, the 46ers do great work in those mountains.

    So true. You get what you vote for. But voters seldom seem to grasp this. Of course, the CMP vote didn't cause this increase. New England uses lots of natural gas for power generation and the...
