    WMNF does not have it listed on their roads page (which is now on Facebook, sigh...) and they've been pretty good about checking with MDOT in the past. I can't find any info about it on the MDOT...

    I've been using the UnderArmour ColdGear glove liners, just because that's what I found last time I went shopping a few years ago. (I bought two pairs.) They've held up well. They're close-fitting,...

    First thing I wanted to comment on was the idea of "book time". I think it's quite useful to have a "guideline time" in the summary description, especially if your routes vary greatly in character. ...

    It's common for land to be donated/sold for conservation after it's become worthless to its previous owners. In the case of the WMNF, I vaguely recall that the land had been valuable for logging...

    I can believe there are plenty of people in NH who don't know anybody who's gotten sick. In Massachusetts almost 2% of the population has tested positive - that's enough for most people to know...

    I do like the suggestion of reverting it to Clinton -- "no, not that Clinton." Fits in well beside Jackson -- "no, not that Jackson."

    Can't find (nor remember) the VFTT threads Sanbu is talking about, so I'll answer Mike P's variation of the question.

    Looks like RocksOnTop is no longer in business.

    As a proxy for "trees big enough to hammock from", I looked at the aerial view and found a stand of birch trees on the Eisenhower trail. That was at 3,600'. (The trail junction is about 4,400'.) ...

    Just a guess, but I can think of something you'd want to boil, stir, and put in barrels in the woods of New Hampshire.

    There are maple trees in most of those photos.

    A filter is a lot lighter than a liter of water. The only problem is, you have to have water sources along your route for you to filter. That's not always the case on a day hike up a ridge in late...

    So if Tecumseh drops off the NH4K list, will it get added to the 52WAV? Judging from photos, somebody has already been up Tecumseh with a saw, so the views are there...

    Yeah, if you're going to spend the cash on a winter bag, go for a serious bag. A minus twenty rating is about right. If you sleep as cold as I do, you'll still be wearing your down jacket inside...
