    2012 - 4,000 Footer Club dinner-award ceremony

    I have been to Pawtuckaway and with all of you confirming I can take my dog, that firms up Saturday morning. I found some info about the Sweet Trail. Is that worth taking my dog on. How strict is it and how popular is it if I could let my dog off leash (small shih-tzu). He stays with me like...

    2012 - 4,000 Footer Club dinner-award ceremony

    NH Tramper: Are you sure I can take my dog into Pawtuckaway? On their website it says "Dogs are not allowed in the park." Stratham Hill looks like it is OK for Friday afternoon. If anyone has a specific preserve they'd recommend - let me know. Remember, I have a dog. I already signed up for...

    Fire Tower cards

    My brother came upon this collection of fire tower cards from the mid 1960s. Thought I'd share. Does anyone else have these? i scanned the reverse of one card which is the same for all with Nelson Rockefeller's signature. In case you can't read the one in pencil from 8-17-66 was from Mt. Beacon...

    Favorite Ponds in the White Mountains

    Two other ponds that I have visited and would put high on my list: Wachipauka Pond and the view from Webster Slide Mt. It is nice that the trail to the pond is unsigned - only the left when heading south on the AT going up Webester Slide. So alot of thru AT hikers just zoom right by. great...

    Vermont Open

    Yes I know about that road intersection/junction. I even took a leak at that spot instead of paying closer attention to the blazes. Wound up at a pretty pond on the Catamount ski trail (although I started getting suspicious that I saw no blazes after awhile but kept going that was...

    Vermont Open

    Now if someone can answer my question (post #3). The folks at GMC said hopefully but no promises and it is bridges out. But I also heard mudlsides since there are no major stream bridges over Killington. Also, while I am at it. You can't approach the Long Trail from the west (US 7) on Kelly...

    Vermont Open

    Does anyone know or can guess when they think the Killington section of the Long Trail from US 4 to VT 103 will be opened? What is the official reason for closure: a) access roads not in good shape b) bridges on the trail out c) blowdowns are extensive and need cleared d) erosion and ditches...

    Magalloway Mtn - what's this?

    I was there on August 23, 2006...who is going to own up to stealing the bra. Now this sounds like a fraternity prank. Here is the photo from a year earlier. Now I'd rather see the underwear than the business cards. Did you know that moose are so prevalent up there that they are for sale! This...

    I see where you are a very infrequent participant of the VFTT boards lately. Anyway, I am sure you will always remember our climb up Tripyramid. Well it has been six years since then and now I am coming back I am doing some less aggressive but scenic hiking this time around. Any chance while I...

    Pretty, Easy Hikes in the Upper Valley NH/VT

    I don't know what you mean by upper valley but I loved Percy Peaks. It is a 5 mile loop that is spectacular. Way up in the Nash Stream wilderness. Mt. Monadnock in VT is another peak that is a petty 4 mile hike (2 miles each way) to a restored fire tower that I feel is worth doing.
