It’s sprung spring finally and it’s almost another summer. Two weeks ago I drove up to N. Conway NH to check out the last of the skiiers in the shadows of the White Mtns and this weekend I watched spruce tips and scarlet oak leaves bud on Walden Pond in Concord, Mass. Next weekend, I’m camping at Blueberry Crossing up in the White Mtns. My gal and I are going to hike Mt. Hale the next day. I’m making it a point to get out and forage more. Lily pads, cowslip, ramps, purslane: you’re all on my list, so lookout! I’m going to hike the Bondcliffs in the White Mtns, which don’t offer views, according to the trail book, they “command” the most wild views of the mountains than any in the region. This is because they are completely isolated from roadside trails and touristy things. I’m also making it my goal to sleep at least 37 nights in my tent this year, just about everywhere. I want to try this. I might just go pitch it in the Rec Trail behind my house and see what happens. Nine of those nights in a tent will be at Porcfest in northern New Hampshire! If you haven’t been to this then go to porcfest.com or read my articles from last summer on my wild ride! site. It is the greatest summertime adventure gathering of libertarians of all time. I’ll be at one of the sites #50. there will be a coffee pot and a tent and me writing in a moleskine and probably a bunch of guns too, if I know my bunkmate @adamhoisington well.
What’s on your itinerary this season, explorers?
