    Going snowshoeing in Michigan soon. First time snowshoer and was wondering if you could comment on the pants situation? Snow pants versus a fleece lined soft shell with gaiters or something different all together?

    Awesome trek you have here. And the Gray Jays, they love bacon. Had some visit my wife and I last summer camping at Cupsuptic Lake campground north west of Rangley Lake,Maine. They were so bold and even landed right in my wife's hand for a snack. Love your hiking videos sintax77. God bless you and your family beyond measure.

    Mt. Washington used to hold the world record for highest wind speed until another mountain topped it not too long ago. Over 150 people have died on Mt. Washington. It certainly isn't "a cake walk". Kudos to you for braving the trails and sharing your videos.

    I have the choice between going 22 inches and 5 inch tails or 25 inches and 5inch tails mainly hiking whites. What would you suggest lightning assents by MSR weighing around 180ish without gear. I tried 30's the other day the trail was already packed and they were way over kill and very hard to maneuver.

    Thanks man

    Would you suggest getting a hammock with a bug net or get one without and spend more money on a tarp?(I'm on a tight budget)

    Very tragic recent death in the Whites. We've all had that peak bagging bug and could all be in her shoes.

    I just watched this video again and realized this was the similar hike we did this summer.  What a difference 3 months makes!  We went Crawford Notch to the Mizphah Hut and tented at the sites there which we hated!  We had to pay to put our tent on a hard wooden deck.  The views from Pierce and Eisenhower were great.  Thanks for all of your work on these videos…they get me through the winter!

    nice – your White Mtns videos are my favs.  I wonder if it would save you some time to just take 1/2 of a caffeine pill instead of doing the coffee thing.

    Very cool.
    What happened to the bird?
    There's a hike not far from me.. kind of a butt kicker but at the top I can feed the birds a little trail mix. They'll fly down and land on my hand to eat it. Pretty cool.
    And I get a cheeseburger on the way home. >_o

    hey sintax, just out of curiousity. What type of solar chargers do you use for your camera while hiking? I need one that will work for a Sony Handycam HDR-PJ200, and am having trouble finding one

    That's what the grey jay wanted you to believe, she lulls you in with her beauty than kicks your ass for your food. Sometimes it's the small creatures that are more of a worry than bigger foes like bears, especially in my stomping grounds the Adirondacks. Watch out for the chipmunks if you ever make your way there

    Yup, it's because of this very trip that I triple check for sunscreen while packing now. I think I do recall another bird visit little while later, but I can't remember the details on those frozen falls. I'll have to go back re-watch to jog my memory…

    Great video Sintax, sorry about the sunburn, I noticed it there the morning of day 2 and cringed! After the second encounter with your birdie friend did you see him/her any more? Also, do you know of the frozen falls you saw near the beginning are up or downstream of the ones you ran into on day 2?

    It's an official AMC White Mountians Trail Map (the water and tear-proof version) You can get them directly from the AMC or at most online retailers for around $10. Very lightweight, durable and detailed maps.
