That's just wrong.

It's a sad day when you can get a cell phone signal in one of the Lower 48's most remote spots.

I disagree about the big clunky hiking buts. Yes, they are nowhere nearly as good as a proper climbing or a true approach shoe, but I'd take my clunky Limmers with good, semi-sticky Vibram soles over...

Spencer, I agree. I've really enjoyed reading through the entries found in the canisters of the New England 3k'ers. As you begin to recognize the different names, and see them again and again, you...

FWIW, what is marked in OSM as "The Carry Trail" is the road that connects Upper and Lower Ausable lakes. It is *not* the Carry Trail, which runs much closer, in places even right along, the East...

Twice I've hiked from the Carry up to Blake Peak and South on Pinnacle Ridge—once headed back to Elk Lake & once en route to Panther Gorge. If I were to do your planned route, I'd start at the AMR...

The DEC Rangers at Marcy Dam that I've spoken to, actually thought that some (many?) of the reports of Yellow-Yellow breaking into Bear Vaults were misattributed to her because the victims were aware...

I originally had the smaller version of the BearVault until Yellow-Yellow learned how to open them. I replaced it with the Counter Assault Bear Keg linked in post #3. More recently, I picked up a...

Alton is on my to-do list, too. We eyed it this past summer from NE Moose, but didn't have time to 'whack out there and back. My thought was to use a similar route to Neil's, but maybe use the SOA...

In all my years hiking, I'd always just used the combination of my boot heel & local sticks to dig my cathole. This summer I invested in a GSI trowel (http://www.gsioutdoors.com/cathole-trowel.html),...

I, too, would recommend doing Colvin & Blake first for the same reasons that others have mentioned. It's easier to go up steeps than down them. You get the up & downs done in the first part of the...

I've done it several times, though not always to Marcy: Haystack, Skylight, & Gray have also been destinations. It's a great trail. At steady, but not aggressively fast pace, it took a full...

Let's be clear though, not all fires are the same. The trees, such as the Sequoia, that use fire to reproduce need small fires. The massive fires that we've seen relatively recently in Yellowstone,...

Reread the DEC regulations linked in page 1 of this thread. The word "open" is yours, not the DECs. By their definition, it is clear that any and all fires outside are considered campfires. The sole...

Seward Range Ski Circumnavigation?

Ski in from Coreys and take the horse trail down to Shattuck Clearing, then the NPT up to Duck Hole...

When I did the Sewards earlier this month, we heard a bear rummaging in the woods and frolicking in the nearby stream. Our bear bag, about 75 yards from our sleeping location was never disturbed. ...
