    Does F&G do an NTSB-like accident report? I’m embarrassed to say I’ve never looked. I agree that as tragic as these situations are, they should at least be something to learn from.

    Did he only paint real life landscapes or did he make his own interpretations? If the latter, then it might be loosely based on a real-life landscape but not be a precise rendering.

    Yes, understood. I was thinking just more generally. Not being equipped properly, monitoring weather, Etc.

    I must say, this one is especially perplexing to me. Just doesn't make a lot of sense.

    As noted, when I went there years ago I approached from the south. Once at the gate to the mountain road itself, it's about 4 miles to the summit going up the road. I poked around a little on the...

    Personally I would not mess with Gale River. A number of years ago I barely made it across on the way up to Galehead and the Twins via Gale River trailhead. As the rain became torrential throughout...

    Ionizing radiation tends to destroy cellular structure, not cause large growth. But interesting just the same.

    I've only driven into that range (to Conner Pond once). It's really a large and seemingly wild area given its somewhat southerly location.

    Would be nice if they fixed York Pond outlet road. Presumably you still have to drive up North Rd to access 26 in Upton?

    This. Time for more bushwhacks or head up to Evans or Grafton Notch or maybe Cape Horn. Who wants to meet up at Diana's Baths? Anyone? :eek: Or maybe just a good w/e to chill around the house.

    I occasionally carry spray. I agree that a true encounter and one where you could respond fast enough is pretty remote. And unlike brown bears, black bears 99.9% of the time do not exhibit...

    Very nice. I should get back into modeling. No time or space right now though.

    Wonder if it is to be used as a snowmachine corridor in the winter. Nice to see someone modeling it too. What scale?

    New Hampshire Union Leading posted on FB that the Cog is moving ahead with state's blessing. I only briefly saw the post (I don't have FB myself). Maybe someone here can elaborate/correct as needed.

    I was impressed that the FD made it up the road in 20 minutes with tank trucks. It's not Travis Pastrana, but still not bad. So there is no water at the summit for the various summit buildings?

    I have no issues with the list or any changes to it. Some will enjoy ticking off a list, while others will be indifferent. There is no right or wrong here IMO and therefore no need to stress one...
