    teahorse would almost certainly take it. Either inside, or they had a locked shed for bikes that could work
    Even if you don't end up staying there, they would likely for a modest fee

    Yes, the experience of being totally unplugged for days is one that I think people should experience at least a few times. My daughter did when she was younger (ie: when I carted her places!), but...

    No doubt. I live in Canada, and I love hiking in the states where I can legitimately tell people I won't be answering phone/text for a long stretch because it's too expensive.

    I noticed this...

    Punching up info on Guthook would be similar to allowing a hiker to look at your printouts for a couple minutes to get information, and then you keep them.

    As a company, they should be happy that people share a lot of the info. It's great free advertising.
    I think that's why I bought the app in the first place. I was on a section hike and someone had...

    Had the exact same thing happen. Was a sad looking site with a huge swollen lip, but after a couple hours and a benadryl, all was well!

    That's just 1 scenario at the top. I agree with your last paragraph. Many scenarios
    It's unclear exactly how much of a premium is being added to the property since we don't know the appraised value...

    True. And having our cell phone in our pocket makes it pretty easy when we stray into locations where someone knows zero English. If we have to go beyond the limited phrases/words we've learned, the...

    If you want to do SNP, I would recommend tacking on the rockfish gap to highway 60 section to get closer to your 150 miles. It is an excellent section, and is a much quieter and more remote feel than...

    This is true, but hiking while carrying a lot of extra body weight is likely adding much more difficulty than 1-2 lbs of added gear weight. 13.4 lbs base is a respectable pack and it's light enough...

    Rental can be a good idea. It's not great for sleeping bags (cleanliness, price, bulk), since you can get a synthetic starter bag pretty cheap and resell it if you move on

    It was going well until his free laborers didn't show up to make him a hearty trail breakfast, causing him to quit. Joking... but I also wouldn't mind knowing if he found anyone that actually wanted...

    Generally, you should be fine if you're in good shape, you have a reasonable pack weight, and all goes well.
    But there are some variables that can throw you off or the mileage can be more difficult...

    I think only your experience can inform you here. I'm 6'4/210 and 2 lbs/day is fairly accurate, but around 1.5 - 1.7 lbs can work as well.
    My wife would kick my ass if I packed her 1 lb/day.
