    i am d4w, honestly i'm on the fence about camping myself. starting next weekend i will be camping every day for over 2 weeks
    soooo....you know what. camp sites are cheap enough that i can book it, we can hang out there, cook foods, and then leave or not @ night. figure it out later. how's that sound?

    kraz mang, if we don't figure it out, you may want to bring your car so you can peace out if we decide to stay? if you need a rack you can borrow the bonez 4 totesMust be awful, being so fluffy.

    gastronomin:Has anyone here hiked the "Pemi Loop" in the white mountains? The loop is 31-38 miles around the Pemigawasset wilderness (with Owl's Head Mt. in the center) depending on how many of the mountains you want to summit. I did the Franconia Ridge loop earlier this month which hits 3 of the peaks (Lafayette, Lincoln, Little Haystack) and had a blast, but it was only about 8 miles and a decent portion of my day. I'm playing around with the idea of trying to organize a hiking trip to bang out the whole Pemi loop as I've heard it's fucking gorgeous (which is very believable if what I saw compares even slightly with the rest of the hike) and was wondering if anyone has any first hand experience. I've never done any camping really, besides taking to the woods in Western Mass with some friends to get drunk when I was younger so any advice/suggestions/interested parties welcome. Thanks!


    dora, studyourheart and i did an out and back overnight here during winter. we were not able to cover a huge amount of ground as there was a ton of snow on the ground but the area was beautiful. i think this is a popular/crowded hiking destination during summer, but that's probably a good thing if you're new to camping. i might be interested in doing the whole loop

    Anyone know some good hiking/walking tracks that I could take my dog for a walk on?
    Anything will do; forests, beaches, fields etc.

    Just good places to get out of the city and see trees and stuff.

    How athletic is your dog? Cutler is popular, some decently long trails with great spots for doggy paddling."Dude's just smashing fructosenormativity, lay off."

    he's got a lot of energy but only 6 months old...seems to wear himself out quick running like a maniac.
    thinking a good 1-2 hour walk would be great, but not too tricky, because he's a bit pully on the leash so would hate for one of us to fall over rocks while he's being crazy.
    doggy paddling sounds good...
    do you just rock up there and start walking? will i get lost (i don't mind if i do)

    one of my friends suggested the fells too...so i might try either of them.

    You can follow the blue heron trail, people can give you directions if you take a wrong turn, tons of other dogs, not sure if that'll be a problem for yours, besides that it's very manageable for first-timers."Dude's just smashing fructosenormativity, lay off."

    @JimmyJ: I strongly recommend Fresh Pond -- the whole 3-mile loop is OFFICIALLY a legal off-leash area as long as your dog responds to verbal commands. You can even bike-run your dog there if he's bigger or you need to get him tired faster. We had been taking Finnegan there all the time. Stony Brook Reservation is another good option, and I've had him off-leash there and seen other dogs there off leash and never gotten in trouble, but there are signs posted saying no off-leash... I really like the Belmont Conservation land for easy MTB and dog-running, but I think it's the same deal as Stony Brook -- it's not *officially* off-leash.::lols at Dan's great photoshopping job:: ::slowly stops laughing:: ::googles:: ::kills self:: -tinyhonkshus

    Stony Brook is our go-to for off-leash. We've also had pretty good times at the Blue Hills.

    Pocky, when are you at Stony Brook? We could have a dog meetup.Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    Why is it that you're not allowed to take your dog, who follows verbal commands, off a leash, but I'm not allowed to put my child, who does not, on one.

    You can put your child on leash? If your child is walking they make backpacks that have a rope (ie leash) that attaches to it.

    It was mostly a joke, but child leashes do come standard with massive judgement from everyone.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    Nerdo, I would love to do a dog meetup, if he and I are ever back in Boston at the same time! (He and my wife are both mostly moved to Atlanta at this point and I'm kind of everywhere at the moment in process of mostly moving down there till her next job gets squared away, but where that next job will be is still up in the air.)

    Thanks for the great dog advice all!....we wanted to swim ourselves too so took him to Mystic Lake....BAD IDEA.
    We're trying to teach him loose-leash walking so didn't want to walk far....too many people...crazy. He was not ready (nor us).
    So we sat for 30mins and ate sammiches then went to arlington dog park on the way home to let him run around for a while.

    When he's better on the leash we'll try all those places over different weekends.

    Also I am down for dog-days. But Gunnar still ain't trust-worthy off leash and not fenced in (we think...he's not overly responsive and we don't want to risk it).

    I just finished doing a three day/two night backpack in Mount Washington State Forest, specifically staying at the Alander Mountain campground, and eventhough it was the 4th of July, my friends and I were the only people in that entire campground, and aside from one or two groups that we saw on the trail, we felt like we had the entire mountain to ourselves.

    As far as mountains go, it's not quite as dramatic or as challenging as the Whites. Alander's a pretty mellow mountain and the campground is a totally easy 1.5 mi hike from the parking lot. If you're feeling lucky, you can also push another 1.3 miles to the base of the summit and there's a four person cabin that's free and first-come, first-served. The cabin looks like it was borrowed from an Eli Roth movie, though, so it's not particularly charming or quaint, but it is all of ten seconds from a broad overlook with 270 degree views of New York and CT.

    Overall though, it's a worthwhile option if you're not looking to do a lot of hiking, but want to just be outdoors somewhere that isn't mobbed by either car campers or AT thru and section hikers.

    It was incredible.

    A brave person on 23s with a REALLY BRIGHT LIGHT will do just fine. It is fucking dark in there and you wouldn't want to end up in a ditch or getting hung up on an exposed part of a buried rail, or better yet, pull a Wile E Coyote when you miss one of the shifts where you have to shoot across from one tunnel bore into another because the one you're currently riding in abruptly stops in a blockage of ancient rusty metal beams.::lols at Dan's great photoshopping job:: ::slowly stops laughing:: ::googles:: ::kills self:: -tinyhonkshus
