Horn Pond Reservation hiking & more

Introduction
.
I have been coming to Horn Pond Reservation since the late 70’s. My major activities include sailing lessons, trying kayaks, and hiking alone or with groups year around. The hiking varies from flat and easy to steep and strenuous. The ledge part of the mountain may have parts that need rock climbing gear. The other parts of the ledge side of the mountain is a challenge although for only a short distance. A condensed sample of many of the types of trails encountered in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. There is variety in the wet areas to include a bog, marsh, lagoon, stream, and a lake with island and dam.
Horn Pond Reservation is changing both by people and nature. Some of the man-made changes include added protection to prevent accidents, memorials. As usage, increases minor trails appear, and some minor trails go back to nature takes the trail back with growth.  To read more please click here.

Benchmade, but Heaven Sent

After two months with this knife I am more concerned about one of my fishing buddies swiping it than it not doing its job.  Time and time again I have heard the comment “Use my knife, don’t get your fancy one dirty cutting bait or cleaning fish.” I have to agree with them, the Benchmade Griptilian 551 H20 Knife is fancy, but it is also meant for serious use.

More Gerber FliCK

Flicknew

Despite promising more pictures I am not having too much luck taking really cool pictures of FliCK. It is a bit more more difficult than I imagined to pull a hook out of a fish’s mouth while holding a multi-tool, camera, and fish, but never fear, I am still trying.
