    In the Winter, the huts are packed. I know they've been shrinking staff that last couple years, since Gorman died, at least. A bad year for LLBean profits may be tied to the hut closures, also. The...

    I think the message got out about the waist deep snow holding over in the higher peaks. How many rescues have there been this Spring already because of Winter conditions? 7?

    It's akin to someone getting hit and killed by a falling tree while walking in the woods. It happens. Doesn't make it any less of a tragedy.

    Apparently he was trying to do a Pemi loop? In Winter with no snow shoes?
