    I've been worried that these kinds of things would start happening given the larger number of aspiring thru-hikers starting earlier and earlier in the year.

    If you're not well prepared,...

    My vote is #2. New England will be quite muddy and buggy at that time (or so I've heard), and #1 will put you right in the middle of the thru-hiker bubble. Springer to 19E (slightly north of...

    Thanks for the post. Heading up that way later this year. Couldn't find any recent info on whether that place was still open or if it was hiker friendly. Now that I know the answer to both is yes,...

    I can't find it anymore, but I remember reading somewhere that part of the AT going up the Priest got washed out and had to be rebuilt following a major rain storm sometime in the 2000's. Maybe the...

    I section hiked most of the southern AT in the fall. Best time of year to be out there, IMO.

    Couple random thoughts I had while hiking in PA:

    Some people will tell you the PA rocks are a result of geology, the last ice age, etc. That is FALSE. The rocks were installed by the PA chamber of...

    *Disclaimer* I haven't done the northernmost 75 miles of PA yet, which many people say is the worst part of the rocks.

    However, I'd argue that starting in Harper's Ferry and going north is a good...

    That's funny, I experienced the exact opposite on my last section hike. It was fall and the days were getting shorter, thrus (all SOBO) would come in after dark and complain about having to night...

    I've day hiked all of section 10 over the past year. It's all easy walking - 20 miles/day is doable even in winter. I'd plan for 4-6 days to finish the segment depending on how fast you want to go.

    I hiked that section the first week of November last year. I had beautiful weather, highs near 70, lows in the 40's, no nights with below freezing temps. The fall colors were at their peak and it was...

    US 311 near Roanoke to Rockfish Gap is about 150 miles. That was my favorite part of VA.

    Second place would be Rockfish Gap to Harper's Ferry, also a little over 150 miles.

    I'm heading out for a longer section from Pen-Mar to Port Clinton in early October, maybe we'll cross paths.

    FWIW, I'm probably going to stay at the Doyle on my way through Duncannon.

    Thanks everyone for the responses. Going to give crushed almonds a try instead of protein powder as this seems like a more balanced and higher calorie alternative.

    Protein Powder?

    A friend of mine recently told me that she adds protein powder to her kids' oatmeal to increase calorie content. I was thinking this might also work for backpacking. Just wondering, has anyone tried...

    There's a good size pool of water in Harper's Creek right in front of the shelter. Should be water available regardless of weather conditions.

    Congrats Berserker!!! I love it every time I hear about a section hiker finishing! It's inspiring in the same way as someone who retires after working the same job for 30+ years.
