    To be sure, I'd go with chlorine and wait the required 30 minutes. I don't trust the Steripen. If the water is still toxic after the bacteria are killed, I'd think twice about going there...or plan...

    There are parts of the Cohos trail which are pretty busy, with three 4,000 footers and a several peaks on the 52WAV list along the way. The very northern end is still on snowmobile and ATV trail,...

    A guide book and map of the area would be very helpful to have. Someone in the area must sell them. Even if someone says "the xyz trail is great" you still need to figure out where the heck it is!

    Looks like the spring monsoons have finally arrived and it seems I developed a leak in my roof someplace, err.

    Looks like it will rain on and off for at least the next week and if that extends...

    Walnut Mt shelter has had a history of bear problems, as do the other shelters in that area. I believe cables or boxes have been installed.

    BTW, the Walnut Mt shelter is a relic, very small and...

    A family of 4 can spend $40 or more just going to McDonalds. $15pp is still a heck of a lot cheaper than a day at a theme park, or a day of skiing. It seems a lot of families can afford to stay at...

    $15 isn't going to stop anyone. $150 a night at the huts doesn't stop them. It's also amazing how many don't even know they have to pay.

    Sorry, I did confuse Camp Dodge with the Joe Dodge hotel at the notch.

    Still, you'd best call to find out if they still pick up packages at the PO for hikers.

    I don't believe mail is delivered to Pinkham. They have to drive to Gorham and pick it up at the PO. Joe Dodge Lodge is a goodly distance down hill from Pinkham Notch. It's near the 19 Mile brook...

    We're probably a good 3 weeks earlier then "normal" in spring conditions. Last year at this time the snow was just thinking about melting - and there was a lot of it. This year it's pretty much gone...

    They stay at the huts. There is camping at the Nauman tent site near Crawford Notch at the south end and at the Osgood site at the north end, but are very far apart. A thru hiker can do that in a day...

    You'll have to descend steeply 2000 feet or more to get into hardwoods suitable for hammocks. Basically, there are no good options to do that.

    Pony up the big bucks and stay at Lake of Clouds...

    The thing is, there are 4 hydroelectric plants, a biomass plant, and a bunch of windmills within 20 miles of me and a whole bunch of solar panels in town. It doesn't have to go far to get to me. I'm...

    The last week of October is real iffy. The weather maybe be nice or it maybe really, really, really bad. Same with the color. One good heavy rain/wind storm in mid October will knock most of the...

    501 and Eckville are closed for the duration of COVID. Tenting available 0.6 miles north of 501 and at Eckville shelter. Apparently the caretaker at 501 isn't very friendly or helpful. I some how...

    I feel your pain Traffic Jam.

    I've been sitting out the spring melt down. Last hike was the end of March. Guess what? It's snowing again :) What looked like an early spring might end up being a...

    The fact she felt she had to run away, what ever the reason, is a good indication those reasons were not being addressed properly. When she returns or is returned home, hopefully those issues will be...

    My dad had a triple by-pass in his early 60's. At which time he finally quit smoking. He just turned 98 and still living on his own. My Mom lived to 90. Guess I got good genes :)

    That sounds like it's just a new way to get down off of Pine Flats down to the highway and will reconnect with the current AT location around the lake at a slightly different point.

    The thing is, it's not real often you have access to a full service grocery store. So, a majority of your meals end up coming out of Dollar General stores, which are pretty much everywhere now. Knorr...

    I don't eat red meat very often, mostly as I can't afford it. Though on a long hike, a juicy, fat burger really hits the spot. First thing I do when I get to a grocery store is chug a pint of...

    I went through there about this time last year. I'm pretty sure that's the area where the beavers flooded the trail. I opted to take the detour around it, had to back track to do so. Others I talked...

    That's why thru hikers end up eating a lot of sugar. 800 calorie glazed honey bun for breakfast? You betcha. (what amazes me is that there has to be enough "normal" people eating these on a regular...
