Need life advice! Great life but I'm wilderness starved

Please welcome my first post on SummitPost. I’ve been a reader of trip reports for a long time. I really need some advice from similar-minded outdoor enthusiasts:

The shorter version: I live on the east coast near a pretty big city with a family, job, house, and overall living situation that is all that I could ever ask for. I’m very happy. However, I lived in a perfect little rocky mountain town a couple years ...

FS: new MH gear, BD harness/axe, DeLorme InReach, much more

Hello Folks,

Massive gear clear-out. All prices include shipping. Photos available upon request. Will consider offers on multiple items or in exchange for a particularly good sob story. If a price seems too low or too high, it's because I've forgotten what all of these things are worth; I'm neither trying to be unfair nor is it an indication that an item is in poor condition. Thanks for understanding.

I understand that it's my first ...

Maps vs. GPSr

For years, decades actually, I religiously carried a map with me on just about every outing unless it was particularly short. An older GPSr that I had didn't have built in maps and wasn't much good for anything except getting me back in a white-out. Then I got one with touch screen and built-in maps and wow, what a difference. It's been about four years now since I last carried a printed map with me ...

Predicting Time and Pace

I've frequently been asked the question "How long should it take me to climb X"? Of course I can't give a useful answer without having a pretty good idea of the fitness and skill level of the person asking the question. Guidebooks and park hiking guides typically give very conservative, pretty slow estimates.

I had a thought about using a calibration versus the records on the fastest known times site. http://fastestknowntime.proboards.com/ ...
