If anyone has an opinion, I would appreciate it!
What section is easier: The 93 miles from Amicalola to Standing Indian Shelter in southern North Carolina in 8 days or the 80 miles from Standing Indian Shelter to Fontana Dam in 6 days?
I did the first section this year and the second section would be next year, but I'm wondering if I can make next year's goal considering what I did this year.
I have a couple questions for anyone that may have answers:
1. Why do my father-in-law's hands and fingers swell while hiking? After 10 mnutes of resting and the pack off his back he can feel a noticeable improvement. Are his shoulder straps too tight?
2. I have celiac disease which means I can not eat foods with any sort of wheat, barley, malt, or oats. I have been able to find a store online that sells the "Mountain House" style of pre-packaged meals that are certified gluten-free
