    This is why you should always bring snowshoes when hiking the high peaks this time of year - even if there's little to no snow above treeline, the snow in the woods is still deep and will require...

    You'd be surprised how easily and quietly things can get done. Did you hear about any permitting or issues with the new building Cannon constructed above 4,000 feet a few years ago?

    With the relatively small size of Lafayette Place, and the longer parking duration (whether it be hiking a 9 mile/4,300' loop or staying overnight at a campground/hut), I don't think the revenue...

    I disagree with the parking fees, and I suspect that many days the cost to collect the fees may exceed the actual revenue.

    I think the Lafayette Place parking lot should be expanded and illegal...

    A lot of this work can be done without big tools.

    One of the most talented individual volunteers in the WMNF was chased out by red tape awhile ago. Truly high-quality work done without...

    I don't think this is a good use of taxpayer dollars.

    I am also concerned that a significant portion of the funding will be absorbed by administrative/environmental surveying/etc. costs.

    I stopped using the Lighting Ascents in part due to the weak crampons (went to Tubbs Flex Alps and haven't looked back), but I was able to use the crampons from the corresponding MSR plastic...

    Lowes was plowed and hikers were parking there when I drove by Friday morning.

    What are they using for the baseline data? The write up cites data going back to 1932, but the chart shows 1935. New England had some really weird winters in the 1930s.

    I don't know that to be the case. There have been many mild winters, late starts, early finishes, early starts, late finishes, etc. over the years. Based upon historic accounts, it was not uncommon...

    Saw that in the news today (link). They officially close in three weeks.



    After years of driving by, we finally stopped in there a few years ago. Nice facility, good food, good prices, good...

    That source does not fully support your claim. By the way, the history teacher I alluded to in the post (that I concluded with a wink) was a Massachusetts full-blooded Native American.

    I recollect from pre-colonial history class that the Native Americans in present-day New England used to purposefully burn large swaths of land on a regular basis. What a blatant disregard of their...

    In fairness, those "current" graphs are real-time on a cloudy day; over the course of a full year, it will look a little different (and it could also look a lot different on a cold winter night). ...

    An issue with electricity, as well as COVID and CO2, is that since you can't actually see it, it makes it easier for those with agendas to detrimentally fill in the blanks when pushing policy. Many...

    Naturally occurring forest fires also release CO2. Trees consume CO2. I think that's what Elton John's "Circle of Life" song was about?

    8.5% is still a pretty significant tax for going out to eat, particularly when multiplied by the growing tabs courtesy inflation.
