    It's hard to imagine someone taking the time to close it. When I was on it for a week a few years ago, I only saw hikers one day.

    Will it spread in spite of masks or social distancing? Yes.

    Will it spread at the same rate? Absolutely not.

    Will the number of people that succumb to it be affected by the rate at which it...

    What -he- meant was unambiguous. He feels our system is underwhelming and its capacity could be exceeded.

    Yours was rhetorical. Try explaining your own position directly. Do you feel our system...

    It's all fun and games until you actually deal with giardia. Miserable experience I'd rather not repeat.

    He's not asking for any sort of special privilege the way I read it. Just for each of us to follow the general recommendations and stay in our own backyards. He in his, you in yours, I in mine.

    Focus on your other gear first. Mike Clelland has written a couple of great books that can help work through the mindset of your gear selection. The idea isn't to go stupid light, but to consider...

    Interesting - what's causing the issue with cooking? Probably worthy of a separate thread. I don't own a pocket rocket, but my ancient Snowpeak Giga stove has handled everything I've thrown at it...

    Sure - but is the cost really worth it for the incremental percentage in weight improvement vs an off the shelf option that's lighter than what you have now? Again - I absolutely love my MLD pack. ...

    Honestly, at that amount of weight I'd probably stick with something like the Exos. I love my Mountain Laurel pack, but the weight savings of ultralight materials (and going frameless) just isn't...

    What's your approximate gear weight (fully loaded with food and water) that you'd be putting in the pack (not counting the pack itself)?

    At this point there's no consensus on them being either under or over reported. Just theories in both directions. And none of that discussion relates to the ethics of thru hiking right now.

    Sure, that's a long term outcome. It's certainly not the present state.

    Christoph, I have no concerns about your plan. As long as you avoid other people and resupplies, etc you've got a very reasonable concept laid out.
