    Great suggestions so far, thanks. I forgot that the kittatinny range is 40 miles not 70, NJ is 70 total, I think. Kittatinny might be the best choice, but I forget if there is a bus in Sloatsburg, or...

    About how much is the HH shuttle? I have really limited funds for this so getting to the trail cheap is key. My bus to ATL is 40 bucks, so going to Doraville is already more expensive but it might be...

    In my experience, the only solar chargers that are worth a damn are the ones that are big enough to fit in your windshield and those barely work. If your on the PCT with full expsure to the sun at...

    You might be able to do a thru hike during winter conditions, but definitely not in one season. The real issue, as I see it, would be the distances between resupplies since traveling on snow takes...
