Well, it seems that everyone has an opinion and all are experts, but I've never once thought of the AT as "wilderness" and never thought of walking as "survival," but that said...

Crock. Do people get paid for this drivel?

The most important trick I’ve learned for surviving backpacking is remembering not to die.

Don't forget to drink water and maybe eat sometimes.... That being said I think it's survivable.

"If you’re in the lower 48 and planning on camping in the spring, summer, or fall then a three-season sleeping bag (rated down to 30F) should be all the warmth you’ll need."

Should be titled how not to survive if anything goes wrong while backpacking.

Hate to see how they do in the alpine regions of the Rockies, Sierra Nevada or Wind River Range...places that see 20* even in early August

Hint: There's a reason it's called BACKPACKING and not MESSENGER BAGGING.
