    I did the west half of the loop one day and was amazed as how well graded that stretch from the col north of Sunday River Whitecap is to the top of Speck. I rarely if ever had to break stride, almost...

    The proverbial cat is out of the bag on that view given current technology. Unfortunately GPS tech is not that precise to define an exact path so it leads to a band of damage. If I remember correctly...

    Current use status means the property is taxed at a lower rate based on its "current use" not its potential value. In this case I would speculate its taxed as unmanaged forest land, versus as a house...

    My guess is the green wood has more "set" on the teeth. The trade off is more set means a wider kerf and slower cut.
