    I can't see any way two people hiking with one dog following somehow would even work. I mean, if one of...

    Why do away with the certificates? If you thru and don't want one then don't apply. Nobody is making you accept a certificate or put your name on a list.

    I use FT ULIIs. I thrued with the jacket (didn't carry rain pants), had a few rips that were easily fixed with duck tape.
    I have yet to find something cheaper and lighter.

    The East Bound (what NOBOS would use) MARC station is about 200' from the Canal. Then it's a 3 mile walk to where the AT leaves the Canal towpath, same distance as you would walk coming from HF.
