    NH law may restrict data collection on private property

    Yes...There actually are places in NH that have the last of its kind. I have spent a good part of my time and effort(along with F&G) towards saving this misunderstood and hated species. This bill would hamper these efforts...

    A shot of claustrophobia with a snow cave chaser

    Nice job! I am currently working on one myself. It certainly gives you a good appreciation for just how much work a true snow cave takes to build. Relying on the ability to build one quickly in an emergency is certainly a recipe for disaster. I have built many over the years and it is a learned...

    Rescue helicopter crashes during hiker rescue on Baldy Peak, NM

    Well said and I could not agree more. In my experience State helicopters or private rescue(life flight type) helicopters are poorly equipped to run SAR missions. I have been a medic for several years and have been on Military helicopters(Blackhawk HH60M) and t private medivac helicopters the...

    Anybody wanna match this climb?

    I have been climbing for nearly 25 years now. I have a few big walls and a FA or two under me. I had the chance to climb a 680+ foot tower several years ago and while the height was not a problem I found the fact that the tower swayed in the wind to be a bit unnerving. I imagine that a tower...

    Question about my First Aid Kit

    To answer your original question....As an professional I clean out my kit and restock with new stuff when ever the expiration date gets close. These replaced items never hit the trash. They go home with me and get tossed into my home med kit for use when needed. The manufactures expiration dates...

    Solo Peakbagging %s

    I am only guessing but I think the percentages would be higher maybe 40-50%. I do an awful lot of hiking mid week and see far more solo hikers than groups. I have done the vast majority of my peaks solo(except for my dog). I have completed my 4 k's (summer) many years ago and did about half with...

    Petzl Reverso 3 vs. Black Diamond ATC Guide

    Just to add more fuel to this discussion........I have both. They are both very similar I have had the Reverso for a long time so I tended to use that more often. In the last year or two I have switched over to using the Kong "Gi Gi" or the Camp "Ovo" These are the exact same devices. The Ovo...
