    I did get a permit on October 29th or at least I received an approval letter for my requested date. My step-off date is April 9th from Campo. I'm familiar with the "multiple device" strategy;...

    I have been doing endless hours of research on this very topic just in case I couldn't get a permit (I got one!). Based on everything I have read, Rob is correct. The PCT forum on Reddit was a good...

    Hey! I'll probably see you on the trail. My permit was approved for April 9. Too bad you're not going a day earlier. I've been obsessing about how to get to Campo. I know about the bus but ugh,...

    I've used half finger gloves for all my hiking. I know I've saved my hand from certain mutilation on rocks, trees and trekking poles. At first I used an old pair of sailing gloves already on hand. ...

    Thanks for posting this. I'll be on the PCT next year, so any and all information is appreciated. The logistics of the PCT seems to be a bit more difficult than the Appalachian Trail.

    ...and I bet you thought Mount Katahdin was a tough climb.

    I think I got lost somewhere in the conversation. Starting from Kinsman Notch to Franconia Notch is northbound and after the Eliza Brook Shelter there is a nearly 2,000 foot ascent to South...

    The Trek has a nice article on sleeping bags that might help with your decision. As I understand it, the higher the "fill" rating, the lower the weight and bulk.

    I definitely would not want to go down that boulder scramble.

    I did that section last year. That climb out of Kinsman Notch is a little misleading. When I got to the Eliza Brook shelter, I said to myself, "That wasn't bad. I think I'll go for the next...

    It could. Maybe Garmin can tell you even if they no longer support it. The documentation on the rollover indicated that not only phones will be affected but also older dedicated GPS devices if the...

    In all the hostels I stayed at on the AT, I can't remember seeing one cat; although it is likely I missed a few. I don't think it should be a big problem.

    I inadvertently signed into the queue a day early, but I stayed in since I'm planning a PCT LASH next year. At 10:30 I got slot 984 and it took an hour to get up to my slot. Most of March and a...

    I think I have read most of the posts, so I'm surprised I haven't seen anyone say they couldn't use a bear box because it was full. I encountered this problem several times in New Hampshire and...

    That's nothing. I spent the night at Eagles Nest Shelter a couple of years ago. There were two hikers there already both of whom were sitting and eating in the shelter. I was tired and didn't...

    The first year I hiked the AT, I was camped at a shelter not many miles from Springer at the beginning of April. There were so many campers there that all the bear cable spots were taken, so hikers...

    If you look at the OP, Verizon specifically states owners of older, non-updatable phones "may experience Global Positioning System (GPS) location-related issues due to the GPS Week Number Rollover. "...

    You're right about the larger pack. My current Zpack Arc Haul was bought with the possibility of having to carry a bear canister in the future.
  19. Bear Canisters to be Required on Parts of the AT

    Just received my electronic issue of the ATC's magazine "Journeys." There is an article in it about food storage on the trail. Here is an excerpt from the article titled Harmful Habits.

    I watched the video zelph posted. Man, if I saw that coming my way, it would scare the hell out of me and I'd be moving as fast as I could the other way. I've encountered Boy Scout troops in that...

    Quite frankly, I think your analysis is right on target. I have been lurking around the Reddit PCT forum since I plan on doing a LASH of the PCT next year. Everything I have read on Reddit says...

    Problem is older phones may not update due to the manufacturer's lack of continuing support. My Verizon Galaxy S5 had it's last update in January 2018 and will no longer update. Check the list of...
  23. On November 3, GPS Rollover Could Affect Older Phones and GPS Device Accuracy

    Below is from the Verizon web site, which explains a potential GPS problem. Apparently, this is associated with the GPS week number roll over that took place this past April. Also, here is a link...

    A lot of walking - at least three miles per day. A couple of days a week, I go to the VA and use their "Wellness Clinic," which has many exercise machines. That's when I do one hour at a 10 degree...
