    The Dartmouth College Grant is just south and west of Wentworth Location, but it's gated except for approved users. But you're free to take a gravel or mountain bike and explore around. No big hikes...

    You're making a distinction that doesn't really exist. Anything over 26.2 is an ultra. Certainly, some races are longer than others, but they're all ultras.

    That would be Larry Davis. I hiked up Monadnock with him a few times when I lived in southern NH.

    I had a torn flap removed about 5 years ago. I did require crutches and had some significant swelling, but was able to fully recover since then. Don't skimp on the PT! I tried that and it didn't go...

    It's pretty difficult to make tele turns in NNN-BC. Not impossible, but NNN-BC is best for touring, not turning. But it's a pretty good match for the skis you mentioned as that ski won't really turn...
