The trail heading out


Being by myself I put the camera on a rock and set the timer


That's a 20 round mag next to some seriously large bear scat. Fairly fresh also


A view of the Presidential Range and almost at the campsite


Tent all set up and campsite ready to go


Cooking dinner on my soda can stove


Looking down stream from the campsite


The campsite at night. Looks rather cozy


I found these on my way back home. That's a size 10 boot next to fresh bear tracks made the night I camped out



Hope you enjoy these as much as I do

Looks like it was an awesome trip.
I am looking to get back out in the woods soon too.
Just got back from a trip in Colorado....plan to head out to a local state forest next month.

Thanks for sharing the pics...great motivator for me to get some things on my calendar!

Nice pics, look like you managed just fine by yourself. Lots of quite time is a good thing once in a while.

Those were good. I have backpacked 450 miles of the AT from Springer to VA line so I can appreciate altitude and remoteness.

Question: Do you normally backpack with an AR? Is it legal in the Natl. forests in NH to have that kinda weapon?. Just curious, I normally carry a small handgun tucked away out of sight (I guess it would do me any good in an emergency).

Last I checked , carry of any firearm, except for hunting season is illegal in National Parks.

Dude...I have that same tent. Best damn tent for the $$.

Good pics, I'm glad that last one wasn't a snap shot of a bear mauling you.

Last time I was at BWCA in Minasota (2003), Forest service ranger said Firearms were OK, just needed to tell them when getting entry permit ()...I tried a search on forest Service web site but havn't found any info one way or another...

Q: Carry In National Forest
A: If you can legally carry in the state the National Forest is in you can carry in the National Forest. You can not carry into any buildings on the National Forest as they are owned by the Federal Government.

National Parks require the firearm to be in a locked hard container with the ammo seperate. Additionally, you must declare all firearms when entering the park.

I always liked NH. I prefer backpacking with friends.

I'm in MA and I hike a lot in NH, whereabouts were you camping?

Link Posted: 9/15/2005 10:08:13 AM EDT
Hope you practiced good food discipline with bears coming that close to camp! We don't need to read about an Arfcommer getting mauled

Leave No Trace, Outdoor Ethics--you all should look it up. Not only is it safe (as a defense against bears) but it could be considered 'tactical'.


And in case you cared, it is environmentally friendly.

www.backpacker.com is a good resource for knowledge, www.campmor.com for gear.

Glad you had fun - i miss the trails

National Forest carry is a-ok, as long as it follows state law, AFAIK...that's how it is in Oregon anyway.

When my friends and I go up in the woods we open carry pistols and bring along the rifles as well.

now that is something I could NEVER do - camp out by myself. Seen to many "Blar Witch" and "Signs" movies

Damn I miss NH! Looks like a good trip.
