    When I did some 2 week hikes I used silk boxers. No irritations or chafing or any other complaints. When I did these there wasn't any Under Armour and you didn't hear much about merino wool. Right...

    The terrain is beautiful. In the summer (at least in the northwest part of the state) the high's are usually in the 80's to 90's with humidity just like where you are. There can be plenty of ticks...

    I forgot to mention the footbox on the Crestas is very roomy. LL Bean is right when they say best fit with a heavy weight sock. My old Sundowners don't have this much room in the toes. Because of...

    I love my leather Crestas. Some people think they're heavy but they're not to me. If weight is an issue they make a synthetic version. I also don't think they are hot either. Mine were very...

    It's not really a secret but by Bear mountain in CT there is a nice cabin by a stream. There's a wood stove in there and an upstairs to sleep in. The stream is clear and cold. I can't remember...

    I used to live up near that area and have some friends that still do. Cornwall is a nice safe rural town. Your vehicle should be safe but take the usual precautions.
