    The high parts of the Smokies can get some nasty storms in March - even for an experienced backpacker, it's something to take note of.
  2. Watching the Cog at the base of Mount Washington

    Having a little fun the day before our hike. Was blowing over 80mph up top today.
    Hopefully better tomorrow.

    Hi Everyone! I'm Paull (yep, 2 L's) and this is my first post! I've been reading the forums for a while now, I've just never actually registered to comment until now. Well, I've made the commitment to a 2016 Thru-Hike.

  5. GA Hike coming up...

    Getting ready to join another hiker in GA for a week on the AT.
    Flight reservations - Check
    Gear - 'Almost' Check

    As a relative newbie its exciting as heck! The shakedown on my last hike took 10lbs out of my pack - got it down to 30lbs... I was in the Smokies and most of the journey was down hill so life wasn't too bad. This time Ive changed a few pieces of gear and cut down on the 'what-ifs' so hoping that my pack is a bit lighter.

    Our hike ...
