Satellite Phones also are, and will always be, much bigger and heavier and more expensive than cell phones. This is because of the power required to hit a target (the satellite) that is many times...

Overall I'm not comfortable with trapping in this day and age. I'm no animal rights activist; I have no problem with hunting and fishing. Trapping is FUNDAMENTALLY different in a key respect: In...

Roostercomb is a good suggestion.

In that same neighborhood, Snow (a little shorter), Hopkins (a little longer), and up the road a little Giant's Nubble (again a little shorter) are all good...

Of course there have been threads for years about "what to do about the problem of boats littering the woods." It seems that there is a group of users that thinks it's OK to illegally leave their...

As I said over on ADKHighPeaks, I think this is a very encouraging development. Sure, it's piecemeal; and sure, the state continues to do absolutely no comprehensive planning. But it's "something,"...

Colden from the Loj via Lake Arnold does not involve the unmaintained "sinking bridge." That's further along the trail, in the low area continuing towards Feldspar. If you are just doing Colden from...

I'm pretty sure Neil posted a trip report here (or maybe on ADKHighPeaks) a few years ago for this summit. Try searching Neil's posts in Trip Reports.

I think the question is specific to water crossings. With the warm spells and some rain in the forecast, the status of water crossings cannot be predicted at this point.

This is also an amusing data point in the "overuse and trail conditions" discussion. The "heavily used" trail is in great shape and is very good travel; the far less used trail from Blueberry to...

That's always a good trip. I have done it in both directions several times, including at night in the winter. Trail is "pretty good" (but needs work) as far as Blueberry. And of course it's a...
