    I hiked in Wild River Wilderness the SUN of Columbus Day Weekend and saw about 30 people on a relatively short loop (one was a group of 9 on a multi-day trip). Almost all of the people I talked to,...

    I did originally but don't now yet still have that issue. Based on sizing charts it would seem maybe my hands are disproportionally longer than they are wide. My knuckle circumference in most sizes...

    It isn't that they wear out. The seams fail which is what I find odd. It's obviously something about my hands because I've had several different brands do it. I think it might have something to do...

    I came across those looking too and they are close to what I want. I think I've looked at just about every type of glove out there at this point. I think I am actually going to try a pair of golf...

    I've tried a couple of Black Diamond models and they do have a good fit but I blew the seams out on both pairs. Didn't leave me feeling very confident about their stuff.

    I need to revisit the running products. I had researched cycling products awhile back but never pulled the trigger on anything. I'll check out those New Balance gloves. Thanks.

    I'm going to miss the epic Summer weather we had this year and all the perfect weather days I caught but the idea of breaking out the Winter gear is kind of tempting too.

    I had noticed that Dudley had reopened on the Baxter Facebook page a few days ago. Don't recall seeing anything anywhere else about that. Got the impression it literally had just opened. Wasn't there...

    Liner Glove Recommendation

    I've been searching for the "right" liner glove for many years now and can't seem to come up with exactly what I want. Admittedly, I am being very particular and what I want may well not exist but if...

    I was up there SAT AM and there was a guy in the middle of Star Lake filtering water and I joked with him accusing him of draining the lake. It really is frightening how many of the lakes and ponds...

    It is pretty crazy how dry it is right now. There are sections of trail right now that are actually dusty. The dirt is powder and just blows around as you walk through it. We are in serious need of...

    Yah I know it has been on the uptick. I see the changes even in the 8 or so years since I started serious hiking. This year has seen an explosion in hiker volume though so I hope it backs off and...

    Stupid question: Isn't back country/ "at large" camping allowed in the Adirondacks below 4,000 ft? Did they get rid of that with COVID? I think I'd rather take a meat tenderizing mallet to my own...

    I guess you're right. Incidents just haven't been making there way across my usual news sources. Figured there had to be a lot of issues with all the new and inexperienced hikers out there this year.

    Is it just my imagination or does there seen to be less accidents and rescues this year despite the big increase in hiker traffic? Seemed like a lot were happening early on in Spring and then it got...

    No offense taken. I live in Southern New England where "hipster" takes on a different connotation than it probably does up there. The notion of sweating at an activity that doesn't involve monetary...

    I've had several people recommend that place. Have to go over there one of these days and check it out. Was it hiker friendly or more of a hipster kind of place?
