    I should clarify. When I meant he was coddled and never tested, I was referring to the poster who was referring to his childhood and growing years. I wasn’t referring to his current journey.

    You can also use a resupply service like Zero Day Resupply.

    On a side note, I’m always surprised at how under equipped Fontana is every year. It’s like it’s a shock when hikers come through.
