    How does the terrain of Devil's Path compare to Slide-Cornell-Wittenberg or Black Dome trail (mileage aside)? I haven't been yet, but I wonder if DP is considered the hardest because of the higher...

    All were done as 1-2 night overnights with the same gear I'm taking on the LT, just a few pounds less in food weight. I did two nights on the AT in NJ this summer when I was able to have someone else...

    Northern 100 miles vs. Catskills

    I've been spending a lot of time hiking in the Catskills prepping for the LT, and I'm wondering how the two compare in terms of difficulty, terrain, etc. I haven't done Devil's Path yet but I...

    I think it's 2 pairs of underwear, 2 shorts, 1 pair of either boyshorts or leggings, and 1 long pair of pants. Maybe those are rainpants? And 1 sports bra. Not sure if the Arcteryx is another shirt...

    He is really making the rounds here in Connecticut! His talk has been really popular, and lots of libraries are trying to book him. I'm pretty sure he's coming in spring to the library where I work!

    Tank tops that play nice with your pack straps

    I'm not a fan of t-shirts and prefer wearing long-sleeve shirts and tank tops when I hike, but I've noticed that tank top straps (at least in women's styles) don't provide much coverage for the...

    Thanks, there's lots of great posts here and I hope OP is feeling a little more at ease.
