    Don't forget, there's a ton of ways to save on the trail as well. Limit town stops and hostel/motel stays is probably the biggest one. Gear doesn't have to be the latest, greatest. Use what's good...

    Another leave it from me. I've seen a lot of forest service folks use pink marker tape to mark short sections of trail they plan on repairing or relocating. I also agree with Rain Man, pack out...

    Hopefully they'll be able to save some of it and make a smaller 1 or 1.5 story shelter, keeping the "barn" theme would be pretty cool though too. I missed it on my thru attempt , decided to press on...

    What's looking at you at night?

    A while back I found a Youtube Vid on how to determine what's looking back at you at night (eye reflections). It said silver eye reflections are mostly rodents (mice, racoons, etc...), green are...

    Yeah, you can expect some pretty tough going, but expect low miles per day and you'll be just fine. It's not "all" like that, but most of it is. You'll have fun, take the challenge!
