    ACU-RITE might have something. I have one of their wireless indoor/outdoor thermometers, with high/low memory (for the day). While a little on the large size, the indoor piece wouldn't be...

    Sorry, the National Geographic map only shows designated spots since that's where your suppose to camp. It should show six of them. You can tent near the shelter site at all of them. Some of them are...

    Unless a big storm comes along and blows all the leaves off the trees, it should be about peak colors in CT/MA around Columbus day weekend and will linger for a couple of weeks, until the beginning...

    I suppose it's worth a shot, but even in a normal year they close about this time of year.

    That is within the Crawford Notch state park, so neither is required. That is the trailhead for the AT and is a small lot, so it fills up quickly and this time of year it doesn't matter what day it...

    Good enough reason. Once the leaves are gone, it should quiet down a lot. I would guess early November is when stick season starts down there. If you want to avoid potential full on winter weather,...

    Same situation here in the Whites, the F.S. has pretty much given up collecting parking fees or enforcing them. Most collection boxes are taped up.

    Why go to the park in the first place? Why deal with all the BS when just north of there is some fine hiking and good views with none of the hassles?

    COVID has definitely impacted the White...

    Do you mean Atkins to Pearisburg? You only cross I81 at Atkins and Troutdale.

    Water can be scare along that ridge walk, but it is reasonably easy. Chestnut knob is nice, on top of an exposed...

    Scented trash bags: The scent will eventually go away if you leave it out in the open for a while. Takes maybe a week or two. Maybe washing it would help reduce the smell.

    Ideally, you'd be looking for trailheads on paved, state or town roads to minimize travel time. Having to use FS roads to get somewhere for a section hike is just poor planning.

    I think the main issue is AT trailheads and parking lot locations aren't in the Google maps data base, so one has to manually locate those points. Which is fine if you know where you want start/end...

    Judging by the number of people here in the Whites this last weekend, no one is taking any of this seriously any more. With no tangible enforcement, why should they? I counted 200 cars at the...

    Good luck with the hammock set up in March. IMOHO, a tent is a much better choice for that time of year. I don't think that pad and sleeping bag will cut it in hammock. The usual cold weather set up...

    Columbus day weekend is the second weekend in October (10-11-12) and should be avoided at all costs. It is a very busy weekend and motels in the area take full advantage of it, since they know the...

    The notice is in the 2020 White Pages guide. Whether this started this year or earlier I do not know. I last stayed there, I think 4 years ago, at the ball field. The first time I stayed there in...

    Madison/Adams loop is more practical then adding in Jefferson, which is kind of out of the way and a long, hard detour. A Madison/Adams loop can be done via the Valley Way trail on RT2. There were...

    If you hike real slow, there are plentiful blueberries in NY during the end of July.

    The biggest mistake new thru hikers make is thinking March is a good time to start a thru hike.
