    I'd never use one, however, like most of us here, many of us would think of the Whites, ADK's and Southern New England as our backyards. If I don't go someplace new, I seldom bring a map and don't...

    May be no reason to go beyond the view and the campsite as the next best views are on the Greylock summit you said you had no time for. It would only be a couple of hours of easy hiking or easy to...

    CT is at the 3rd or 4th wettest July ever and it's just the 17th. (Those were numbers through the 16th and more Thunderstorms today.) Meanwhile the Allagash continues to be just over two feet...

    Probably a safe generalization when looking at their membership location and which states have higher vaccination rates.

    I'm watching two rivers near me for canoeing and the Allagash. All are below three feet as of mid-morning on Father's Day. Rain is a big key. Sorry for those on vacation in July in northern...

    I don't do it in other facets of my life so I would say no. I've picked and chosen my own list of which peaks i might do in all 12 months, not all 48. I keep going back to favorites and not...

    Welcome,

    As a hiker who should weigh quite a bit less, I feel your pain. I do day-hike mostly so again pack weight something I trim. I've started getting up earlier so I can still do hikes but...

    I get them more in CT in tall grass so I avoid that. I'm thinking we need to rename the Black Pond bushwhack as the Black Pond Herd path or unmaintained trail. I don't do much whacking, Fort,...

    I wouldn't let the list make me wonder if it's crowded, I'm tempted to say the 46er's are generally 10% more list crazed than the NH 4000'er crowd. NH has Owl's Head, Isolation, and the Bonds as...

    The picture appears to tell it all, if you want some semblance of solitude on popular summits like Monadnock, get there soon after sunrise. (looking at the length of their shadows)
