    I tried handwarmers and they are not for me. Just have to wait 10 minutes and my hands warm up just fine without them. I tried them and found zero benefit.

    Me and my dog have loved the lean conditions. It's better for him not being in deep snow and I'm not really a snowshoe lover, love spikes. We've been in the Lakes Region and West of Plymouth on the...

    I'm not a list guy, but I like reading the names of these people, because they love mountains. Nobody would accomplish these goals that did not. Hey Tim, nice job.

    That's the edition I have as well, maybe I got 1985 from the map.. Not sure where my map is, it saw quite a bit of use back then. Pretty cool we both still have them.:D

    That's too bad. I remember going in there and they had the glass case in the back with the Randolph Mt club stuff in it. I still have my "Randolph Paths" circa 1980, the little green book, that I...

    Dude, those G10's are really nice, no fooling around. I will be sporting Petzel Irvis 10point crampons. Very similar to your set up. I look forward to just waltzing up stuff again. I will just have...

    I watched it, I had no idea what was going on in there. Quite fascinating, I really thought the stock of water samples was incredible, going back to the 60's!!!

    I've used my Hillshounds crampons every week for the last two months and have found that exact issue. Just the other day, I had to stop twice because the front bail was off to one side, which means...

    Soloist are a rare breed for sure. When I rock climbed, I was not inspired by soloist at all, frankly I found the concept to be self destructive at best. Your taking chances that you just cant have...

    For most trails in the Whites, crampons are overkill. That's why I'm looking at options. I think I heard a thump all they down here in Goffstown, when you fell by the way.:eek:

    Thank you very much for the follow up information on Mr.McMurtrie. Considering our time frame was the 80's and he didn't seem to young then, he lived a long life.

    I've never done the bushwhacks. I crossed the rivers every time, they were either bridged, frozen over or you turned around.
