Thank you so much Mohamed! I'm not sure that the spark I have shared will ever fan into flame, but at least I know I have tried! I hope that someday your situation will turn around and you will get to enjoy what I did as well!
Mohamed if you want a hiking buddy sometime, I can get out most days during the week. Even though I love winter hiking, like you I do not care for spring hiking up high were the snow is rotten! So anything lower until the snow goes is fine by me!
Thanks for the green square! I hope to see you again sometime. I didn't get much of a chance to speak with you on Moosilauke last August, hope a day soon comes when I can exchange more than a few words with you in person.
Thank you for the green spot, Mohamed. I appreciate your generosity very much. The old Tuckerbrook ski trail does not appear on any current maps that I've seen, but I'll have to check some older ones. (Surely it appears on an old Mittersill ski map.) Rocket21 has wondered if it was built by the CCCs in the 1930s -- it'd make an interesting research project to find out.
