    Looks like you already got some answers on this. I personally can't say whether it would or would not be too long. As someone who is 6'-5" I have always had to buy long bags, and I typically just...

    As per many of the responses you got here, you're no different than anyone else out there. The AT is public property and as such everyone has the same right to be out there and use it.

    Well, it's funny that you should mention this. Of all the climbs on the AT, South Kinsman sticks out in my mind as one of the top 3 toughest ones (for me at least). So yeah, I agree with what you...

    I had to look at my notes to remember some of this one. I carried a pack through here and stayed at Eliza Brook Shelter. My recollection is that the shelter area is pretty neat.

    As others have stated, somewhere where it can't be rolled away (like down a hill or into a body of water) and is sitting loose. I like to set mine close by so that if I hear it being messed with I...

    Bearikade user here. It's a great can and as you stated you can use it as a chair.

    The untold part of doing hangs is that doing a proper hang can sometimes be impossible in many areas due to...

    Yes, I am glad to hear this.

    I have been a proponent of the canister for a while now. I've hung my food and slept with it in my tent in the past, and the canister is just easier to use without...

    I'm hoping we get some good color down here in VA in a few weeks. It's been so dang dry that a lot of the leaves are turning brown and just falling off. Usually when this happens the colors aren't...

    This is some good advice here. If you are looking for "solitude" (you likely won't find this anywhere on the AT unless it's during the winter) then I would not do SNP. If you want to be around...
