Rephrasing the famous song, in the wild you acutely responsible for . . . Every move you make, Every step you take. If you slip and fell – it is your responsibility.  If you forget to pack something – it is your responsibility.  There is no way of escaping this simple fact. The night in the wild was quiet and uneventful.  I do not know, if it was raining during the night, because I put on earplugs.  I always bring them along to sleep better and ignore all the noises outside. However, tarp was very wet in the morning.  I was strangely cold during the night, despite all the warm clothes…

Almost immediately off the parking…

Crossing a huge body of wilderness often involves a question of returning back to your car.  This itinerary suggests such a crossing, if you have one car, one bike and 3 nights to spend in the woods.  At no point you are required to carry your tent and your sleeping bag on your back.  Instead, you will stay two nights in a campground and one night in the hut, where they have beds and blankets. New Hampshire White Mountains are only 2 hours from Boston (140 miles to Lincoln, NH).  They are close enough and large enough to explore several times a year. Here is a bird-eye view of your itinerary:…
