    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I've read so many stories about people going out for a day trek and ending up out there two or three nights I figure an extra six or seven pounds of emergency survival stuff is good insurance. Also have a whistle, use trekking poles (double as poles for the tarp!), knife, poly cord, several feet of duct tape wrapped around trekking poles for storage....plan on getting one of those space age trekking stoves and carrying a little food too.

    Shit. Now I need to buy a special camera to film myself doing that. Thanks for that.

    Well... I don't go that far, mostly because all of my hiking is in fairly well-traveled areas. Worst case, I could plop my ass on the trail and be guaranteed to see another person within a few hours.

    I do still always carry a whistle, a bit of rope, a knife, and firestarting materials though.

    Where we trek it's pretty mountainous and easy to lose the trail at some points. We have hiker rescues about weekly here; daily during tourist season.

    Yeah, there's none of that here unless you get into some parts of the Adirondacks. I do most of my hiking in Harriman State Park, which is only ~30 miles from the city and can be very crowded, or the Catskills, which while much less crowded, are still hardly what I would call backcountry.

    Also, the NY/NJ trail conference does a pretty damn good job maintaining the trails, there's only been a couple of times where I have really ever questioned if I was going the right way.

    Harriman is a nice one. It's on my list of parks to hit this fall.

    Harriman is really nice if you get away from the day-use crowd. Its hard to believe it is so close to the city--there are some very beautiful parts of that park.

    Another one that's close to NYC (Yorktown Heights) is FDR. I haven't been there but I hear it's really nice with good trails.

    I bought the Empire Pass which gives you free admission to all state parks. Gotta get my money's worth before it expires next March!

    you have to assume parallelism for this to work, but looks pretty awesome, why does it make me happy? Well, maybe the little voice in me says I should go back to engineering after all...

    Maybe a superior intellect like L'inc can show me how, but I don't think there are sufficient words in the English language that can express how awesome ice cream is

    Also - not quite as good as ice cream, but sexting wifey while away is extremely awesome and frustrating at the same time

    Aww shucks I ain't of superior intellect and have no special words to say the greatness of ice cream, maybe "kick-ass."

    How about "not as good as gelato."
