I agree that some of these topics would be interesting as new forums.

As for B-52 crashes, I visited the site of one about 4 years ago on Elephant Mountain in Greenville, Maine: http://www.moosehead.net/history/B-52.html

There's quite a bit of wreckage strewn along the side of the mountain, and even a small memorial there.

I worked at Lakes in 1970 and found the plane that spring. We scavenged a bunch of stuff from the plane and then rolled it down into a rough and almost inaccessible area of Oakes Gulf. Some people from the croo of 2002 or 2003 found it that year and scavenged a few more pieces which they proudly showed me.


Interesting story.
How about a location where you rolled it over into Oaks Gulf?

 Oakes Gulf Plane Crash
I t has been 37 years since I was last at that plane. But it was found again in 2002 or 2003. They found it based on my recollections of where it was. I remember it as being quite a ways off the camel trail to the south and at the top of what would be the headwall or steepest part of the gulf. That's all I can add. Sorry I can't give coodinates.

Mountain and Woods History/folklore: We know the mountains and woods of New Hampshire are loaded with great stories of Indians and Settlers. Mt. Washington alone could probably fill a book (actually I believe it did .) And how did this or that mountain get its name? Ya know, things of this nature.



I think this idea is great. I would read it

Actually, it has filled at least a dozen books. :lol:

Visit the link SilentCal gave you and check for "Forest and Crag" by the Watermen duo, "4000 footers of the White Mountains" by Steve Smith and Mike Dickermen for some great historical backgrounds on the 4K's, "This Grand and Magnificent Place" by Christopher Johnson and then a great set of books by Robert Pike "Spiked Boots" and "Tall Trees Tough Men" for some great logging history.

Good topic suggestions but I wonder if they would have enough posts on them to really be worth the space? WMNF/NH History is a favorite of mine but again, not sure if there would be many posts on this subject.
How about you generalize NH walks, history, tourist spots all in one topic, and call it "Our NH" or something like that?

 1969 Plane wreckage
I saw this in 1970 on the first day the auto road was opened. As I remember the fuselage was to the right side of the road (ascending) and 1 wing and another large piece were on the other side back toward the ravine. I don't remember if the prop was still attached but my parents took pictures that would probably show.

I'll see if we can locate the photos and will post.

I like the nature walk idea. I do as many of those as big hikes and am always looking for some new interesting spots. I do realize this was started years ago and if it hasn't happened yet people must be happy with them in the regular hiking thread, but I do think that'd be a good category to add. I often feel like some of the smaller stuff I post about doesn't really belong, but then I figure if someones looking for that stuff at least it'll be there and nobody is forced to read any of it.

Glad to hear that someone has enjoyed the trails and reports. I will definitely keep posting. Just put one up actually :D , although it's one I've written about before. New season and new sights however.
