Now's the time. The swamp (the 1/2mi before the lean to) should be frozen solid right now. There won't be any bugs, and the herd path may be covered, but you should be able to make out where it is.

That's exactly what my correspondant said when I told her about when I had to turn back one time. Wise words; makes it a lot easier when you look at it in that perspective.

I picked up the cheapest pair of MSR's last year at EMS after looking around at my options. Plastic with metal teeth on the bottom means they're great for deep snow and icy slopes. I've used on...

Nope, lots of people do. Trick is to get an early start.

Personally, I can't. I've tried a few times and simply can't get that far in a day. So YMMV. You can always camp out and enjoy the peaks...

I know Andrew's site has a panoramic peak location (http://alavigne.net/Outdoors/index.jsp). It's pretty sweet, if you can find it on there. It loads panoramas from tons of different mountains and as...

I have AT&T with a Nokia, I get service on every summit I've been to, and most trails too. I dunno how, but I get text messages way before the summit.
