    The NY/NJ/CT self-quarantine is officially the case for both Virginia and NC. Since I'm high-risk anyway, I've chosen to follow it and delay section hikes there. Though the biggest concern is...

    Have had two mattress failures that left me on the hard ground, though was once able to borrow a pad mid-trip. Have used A 20+ year old Thermarest on my last couple of trips.

    So, does this mean I can no longer purchase single sections of the AT on Guthook, only the whole trail?

    EDITED TO ADD: They don't highlight it in the iPhone App Store, but did have links to buy...

    First task is helping re-start trail maintenance on the AT in Central Virginia.

    After that, I'm still hoping to finish AT sections between High Point, NJ and Killington, VT. I've finished...

    I recently tossed an EMS tent that was about 25 years old for this reason. I could also see spots through the coating where it would leak.

    You've definitely gotten good advice here. I did take notice of several things.

    My current first aid kit is one of these, but I suspect I could cut back.

    I've lived all my life between 50 and 100 road miles of the AT, in three different states. For a variety of reasons, I'm unlikely ever to live anywhere further away than that.

    Even though I'm in good enough aerobic condition to string 20 milers on fairly flat terrain, I've been having foot issues this fall. I'd probably plan for 5 1/2 or 6 days.

    Thanks all! I would look at an early spring hike, either in 2020 or 2021. I like the nearness to water and minimal road walking.

    I'm out of AT sections in the South, so don't have much I can...

    It looks like camping is available at reasonable distances except for the easternmost 18 miles, though that's still a do-able day hike.
  22. MST Segment 10 - Eno River State Park to Falls Lake Dam by Raleigh

    This section got my attention a couple of years ago as an off-season (probably early spring) section hike. Anyone done it and have any thoughts? How practical is camping?

    I knew there were some shelters along the Tuscarora. This website, starting with the northern end, lists shelters in at least half the sections.
