    I have always enjoyed that bread. My father loved it and got me to like it as well. Been awhile since I had any, it just made the shopping list. Microwave with butter.

    Crampons are not in vouge because of the invention of two things, microspikes and the modern snowshoe. These two inventions can cover 98% of winter terrain in the Whites. When I started winter hiking...
