The road going in may be rough, since Alan is no longer grooming due to budget cuts. All other lodges on th...

Re: White Mountain Ride Feb 29th/30th

The cost to rent the cabin for one night was $33, but I am not too concerned about getting reimbursed. I will bring a pull behind sled and some fire wood. Also, I will bring a chain saw, stove, lantern, and propane. Sometimes when I have rented these cabins, the equipment is broke or missing, so I a...
