Many are hestitant to hand out their email address for fear of being spammed. Our newsletter is sent out about 2 times a month or when we hear of something important to share. Many of the emails will contain a link to a page on this website promoting a product but emails will not be sent for the sole reason of selling a product. Each email will also contain an unsubscribing link at the bottom of the page should you decide to cancel your subscription.
A friend of mine hikes frequently in New Hampshire and has informed me that the last trip he did in the Twin Mountains area there was little or no snow. He brought his snowshoes but did not use them. There was about 2 ft of snow in Franconia Notch but outside the notch there was barely a trace.
From that news it is safe to assume that spring backpacking season will be here shorly. That means it's time to go through your gear and replace items that are worn or update items you were thinking of improving. The season will be here before you know it and the temps do not require heavy fleece clothing. ( But I would bring them just in case. )

I am in the process of making a fireplace screen saver for those who enjoy campfires.
I am also in the process of making a fireplace DVD for those who enjoy a little mood on their TV.
