    School trip suggestions

    Thanks everyone! All the ideas are great...I appreciate the thoughts and if there are more, I'll keep reading! Monadnock is out as it's too much for many of our students, and the idea of an emergency that far from our home base is unappealing. Drive is too far as well and I already stress a...

    School trip suggestions

    Hi all, Been a while since I've been here, but thought I'd try to get some ideas about a school hike for the upcoming fall. We usually hike Mt. Wachusett successfully but wanted to see if there's other options to vary the yearly hikes. We are a small special education school (30 kids, 13...

    Greylock Hike 1/23/10

    Just asking for advice on an easy snowshoe route...I've done some hiking in the Whites but not much in winter. I've got snowshoes but was wondering if this is a true winter hike or if it is a bit less intense that up north. Any thoughts would be welcome about the route. Thanks.

    Type of Cord for Ultralight Tarps

    Triptease Because of the tooth it has, Kelty's triptease doesn't slide over branches easily, and when it does, it can cut into tree. Check out the spectra choices at Really light and tree-friendly. Expensive, yes.

    How would you do these 2 peaks?

    I've got the next 4 days off, and need Owl's Head and W. Bond for my list(then Jefferson for 48). I'd like to do both this week in a 3 day, 2 night backpack, but can't seem to get a plan that I am happy with, mostly because of too much backtracking. What would folks here do. I can do a good...

    Old AMC and GMC guidebooks

    WMG at Boston Public Library The same thing has happened at the BPL. I have looked at the 1936 and 1940 guides there, and wanted to look at others, but many of them are missing.

    Cabot Cabin and Unknown Pond

    The spring now has a sign 3 weeks ago or so, the spur trial had a sign and was obvious. Couldn't hear the flow from the main drag though.

    Sad News For Everest (Chinese building a road to base camp)

    Um... That is Pat Robertson's website with the report. The 4 months thing is possible if you follow his workout regimen and buy the carbo-loaded food he sells.

    Base camping and Day hiking

    Try this... REI Flash. I have never used it as a stuff sack, but I really like it as a day pack. I roll my thermarest in it, stuff what I need in the tube that is created, and voila, a legit day pack. $25 doesn't hurt and 9oz doesn't either
