    I've been doing sections of the Bartram myself during this. I haven't seen any really packed parking. Which trailhead did you see it packed? That said, I've largely avoided some areas due to people.

    I occasionally find the Compass app on the iPhone to be miscalibrated and found that shaking the phone resets it. I've stood on an overlook clearly looking South and have it tell me it was North.

    Ron Brown can pick you up at Blue Ridge Gap if you hike back to that point.

    The point of the article is that the two studies that led to the widely held conclusion that bear spray is more effective were never meant to prove that and, in fact, don't. They were separate...

    Let's say everyone starts putting away food properly. Do you think that a bear that has already learned where there is people there is food is going to just stop going where people are? As you said,...

    One could argue that in areas where they're not hunted they become a problem. Anecdotally, that would certainly seem the case. GSMNP being a prime example. And, per their new GPS study, those bears...

    We're told bear are naturally afraid of people. If true, then any behavior where a wild bear fails to demonstrate that fear is by extension "unusual." If walking through a camp full of humans isn't...

    Typically you have to be so many feet/yards from a road to hunt. I'm not against hunters but they must hunt within the law. I came across a lost hunting dog at Cooper Gap once. This was not in...

    One of the PCT books I listened to mentions a Llama that did the same thing. Some folks had a couple of pack Llamas. Coming off one of the passes in the Sierra, I think, one just sat down on the...

    Have dealt with it over the years myself. I still have some struggles on the trail. Hang in there.
  14. Does Bear Spray Work? Maybe it depends.... Interesting article

    So nearly everything we've been told about bear safety has been hinged on the notion that bear spray is a better defense weapon than a firearm. At least, that's the conclusions many reached. Turns...

    There was long-running bear activity around Thomas Knob Shelter last year. Bear boxes were brought in, as I recall. Be aware and hang your food properly.

    If you feel you were treated poorly by a RR you should report that incident to the ATC. Perhaps others have as well and it could be a pattern with that person. I'm sure by far most are doing a...

    Apparently they cleaned up Cable Gap, as I was there on 3/13. Sassafras still had a pile out at the privy on 3/11.

    I have both. I prefer the Ohm but only because I have more time with it. I just came off a 3 day hike from the NOC to Fontana. The Circuit's straps were bugging me a bit but I attribute that to just...

    That may be true too. And if so, then that might bolster the notion that the park is too small for the number of bears that are there.

    Cool! There is a setting called Linear Mode. Play with that and see what you think. It reduces the "fish-eye" effect. It does do digitally, though, so be sure you like your footage when using it but...

    I shoot videos with a Sony x3000. At the time, the Go Pro equivalent (Black 5 or 6) had inferior audio pickup and stabilization compared to the Sony and I had already been using Sony cams. The new...

    Yeah I think it was Shug who mentioned always wear like wool or something when around a fire. These nylon jackets don't fare well with floating embers.
