    Why not both? CB makes a great aged white cheddar that comes in wrapped sticks. You don't want to know what percentage of my food bag is comprised of these sticks, but I can vouch for how well they...

    Those small muscles in the forearm can create all sorts of havoc if you use them heavily in a way they aren't used to. Painted a ceiling recently and had to sleep with my arms propped up to keep from...

    Silpoly really handles wet better than the silnylon did, at least for me. No stretching and retains less water when you're packing up.

    I do just as mentioned with MH meals. A regular, non-Pro Pak, MH bag says it is two servings. Most cans are listed as having 10 servings. I'll dump the whole can out on a plate and then scoop...

    I see the closure on Horse Mtn is for nesting falcons TJ. Are they a recent arrival? Most of my trips over that way have been in June/July and I don't recall seeing notices before.

    We drove through the notch on our way back from checking on our Cohos section last weekend. Amazing cascade on the side of Speck. The big open rock face that usually just looks damp had huge plumes...

    Less snow due to less high peaks, but the downside is the mud when there is no snow. Mud season hiking is ugly anywhere in New England, but the Whites and S Maine would at least be rockier.
