About Me I've worked for the Appalachian Mountain Club and Green Mountain Club for several seasons. I led a trail crew in Vermont for the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps near Stratton Mountain. I hope to continue working on or near hiking trails, although the seasonal work thing is hard to sustain over the long run. We'll see how that goes...

Re: Re: Re: crampons?

Re: Are there designated Campfire Rings/Areas at the shelter sites?
The one at Melville-Nauheim shelter is directly in front of the shelter. The one at Goddard is off to the side. They're definitely there, though. And there are outhouses at both shelters, too. ...

Re: Re: Re: Lunch?
Oy. It looks like I'll be the one going blind into the weekend trip-- I don't know if I'll have any time to test my gear before the trip. We'll see. Re Lunch: Bring a chopped up ...

Re: Re: weight split
Luckily, these two shelters have tons of space for tenting. Melville-Nauheim (night 1) easily has enough space in summer for five or six tents. In winter with a good base of snow would be possibly ...

Re: Went for a day hike...
I'm glad you have the scientific mind to test all this out, Bryce. I don't have too much to add... Are turkey roasting bags much tougher than the doggy poo bags? I tried the turkey bags ...

Re: water and maps

Re: South Norwalk train Station
Parking is a pretty big USFS trailhead. We'll be able to fit a dozen cars easily, as long as it's plowed (which I'm pretty sure they do). edit: Here's a link to see the parking a...
