    I wasn't challenging the accuracy of your statement. I was legitimately wondering why an executive order wouldn't have the force of law. I did a little research after the post and this really seems...

    So it's an optional mandate !?!?! What would be the purpose of the whole process if anyone could just say "Yah I'm not doing that"? Is the same true at the Federal level? Seems like an awful lot of...

    I hadn't even thought of that. Yikes. That'll be interesting for sure. Can you imagine the combination mask/posthole post rage that is going to erupt on Facebook this Winter?!?! God forbid that...

    Wouldn't a buff be the easiest thing for hiking? Just pull it up over your face when you have to and take it right back off when it's not needed. In terms of protection it is probably well down the...

    I didn't realize such a tiny spot even had a website! Sounds like it is seeing some heavy use too so I'm not sure this location will work out if I did a sunset hike and arrive during peak hours. Is...

    Already hiked from both of those. For that matter I've done Pumpelly many times too, Gilson Pond and the official pay lot/entrance once (and never again). It's my favorite approach but parking there...

  10. Gap Mountain Trail North Parking (Near Monadnock)

    I was looking at a sunrise/sunset hike of Monadnock this weekend and with all parking lot closures, reservations and all that stuff I was thinking I'd just park at the Gap Mountain Trailhead and take...

    Awhile back when I was contemplating this change I set up a Flickr account but I didn't care for the interface. It was free at least. I set up a 14-day trial account on SmugMug and really like it....

    Damn. Those are some pretty hefty sticker prices on those souvenirs. Would be cool having one of those signs though.

    Their "Overdrive Wrap Gaiters" may be the latest incarnation of what you're referring to. They seem to have a clunky velcro closure on the front though which looks to me like it would catch on stuff...

    Interesting. Definitely looking for something a bit heavier for cold weather water splashes, mud, etc but I may break with my no gaiters in Summer rule and try a pair of these with my trail runners.

    Are Dirty Girl gaiters that durable? Maybe I have misunderstood how they are constructed. I thought they were basically a lightweight, warm weather minimal covering for trail runners. I didn't think...

    My Winter gaiters are a rugged OR model (not sure which one). I've been using them since I bought them (at least 5 years now maybe) and at least durability wise they've held up well. I put a good...

    That doesn't look like a bad design. Interesting that the hook on front bends up instead of down like most others. I'm guessing that probably keeps them on better having to go up and under the lace?...

    I'm familiar with that brand. I'd consider them to be a trail running shoe gaiter and not the best choice for shoulder season conditions. Looking for a somewhat beefier and taller gaiter than that.

    Gaiter Question / Recommendation

    I get what you're saying. My point was just that, at least to me, there is a more direct correlation with the money I spend on something like AAA versus SAR. I may never need a rescue but my Hike...

    Not sure the AAA analogy is a good one. If I'm paying for coverage I'd be more inclined to use it. I mean that is why I am spending the money. Especially if I was on say Rte 128 at rush hour on the...
