    You can also use electronic rechargeable hand warmers that heat up in 10-15 seconds and last a few hours. They're a bit heavier than the disposables but I'm impressed with their robustness and speed.

    Well, in general, the Interwebs don't have many rules. VFTT, however, does. :)

    Is the snowpack in AK similar to the generally heavy snowpack here in the northeast? We rarely need lots of floatation here because the snow is generally pretty dense.

    The Dartmouth College Grant is just south and west of Wentworth Location, but it's gated except for approved users. But you're free to take a gravel or mountain bike and explore around. No big hikes...

    You're making a distinction that doesn't really exist. Anything over 26.2 is an ultra. Certainly, some races are longer than others, but they're all ultras.

    That would be Larry Davis. I hiked up Monadnock with him a few times when I lived in southern NH.

    I had a torn flap removed about 5 years ago. I did require crutches and had some significant swelling, but was able to fully recover since then. Don't skimp on the PT! I tried that and it didn't go...

    Keep in mind that the Whiteface Toll Road doesn't require AT gear, or even metal edges. It's a pretty boring descent that might be better on tele or backcountry XC gear.

    Exposing someone to COVID-19 is endangering someone's life. Yes, lots of things we do could lead to EMTs being called. But a backcountry rescue places responders at long term exposure in ways that a...

    It's pretty difficult to make tele turns in NNN-BC. Not impossible, but NNN-BC is best for touring, not turning. But it's a pretty good match for the skis you mentioned as that ski won't really turn...
