    How "solo" was your solo hike?

    I created this account years ago, with big plans to hike the AT a couple years after this account's creation. Life happened, and when I went to create an account a few days ago, found that I already...

    Thanks, that was more or less my thought. I read a couple long thru-hiking articles and one of them had this garage full of boxes and food that was going to be sent. It seemed a little.... overkill?...

    Not everyone likes dogs, some people are allergic, and some are downright afraid of them. I love dogs, but I wouldn't want a wet strange dog to come trampling on my stuff and shaking itself dry next...
