    It comes down to grammar which I dont pretend to be an expert The "this" referred to CPC not the oil refinery.

    Sad to see that such significant regional history is being forgotten.

    Like any highly politicized project, there are two sides to the coin. Close to a billion dollars for a project in Maine with 100s of millions in long term profits to the owners. There are multiple...

    Swiss Bobs were popular. I got schooled on them by a couple of old timers that hiked up to the headwall whenever the weather was good and would slide down the Sherburne in the afternoon. They showed...

    And what behaviors do you feel will be incentivized?.

    IMO the Cog and Autoroad will build the fee into their cost structure so I am not that worried about tourons making use of a convenient...

    I have heard references that sewerage flow went down through Alpine Garden and then down Raymond Cataract which is one of the reasons there is no trail there. There are some springtime streams that...

    I guess its up to someone else to debate if the state deserves to make a profit from the users of the summit. If the state continues with the approach that MWSP has to break even then they need to...
  9. Tuckerman's Accident - Two Hikers fall/slide 500 plus over the lip

    Pretty amazing given how much rock and ice is showing. Microspikes on one, no mention of what the other was wearing. I think those folks should have stopped to buy their lottery tickets on the way...

    I picked a totally arbitrary split, feel free to choose your own. 2/3rd 1/3rs east to west? Both the Pinkham Lot and the Ammo lot oveflow early in the AM most weekends. Pinkham has the overflow lots...

    I agree that the numbers for hikers are just a stab in the dark. My guess is if in doubt overestimate hiker numbers. The Cog owner has been vocal in the past that the hikers are major user of...

    You are right, I will redo the math I picked the wrong denominator when I was doing the percentages. Note the hourly calculations are used for determining peak use. Therefore you cant equate peak...
