    A wonderful man. I happened upon him, Odie, and Kitchen Sink at the Glencliff Hostel in Sept. He was my savior for the second of the three falls I took that day:

    I was aching from my recent...

    Since this is a Straight Forward post, let me contribute what I can....I've hiked SOBO from DWG to Smith Gap so far and found the trail easy, flat, and not too rocky. I was day-hiking so water was...

    Emergency Shelter Always! It only weights 3 oz and saved my butt at Pierce Pond when I went hypothermic in the night. I carry one in my day pack, another in my overnight pack, and keep another in...

    I feel far from an irresistible force (just stubborn and sometimes stupid). Perhaps I should renew my AAA membership! :D

    Thank you for the encouragement!

    How far north? I'm hoping the hikes I'm doing this weekend won't be too effected.

    Hikers Welcome Hostel Shuttles 603-989-0040 or cell 203-605-9430 Ask for Acadicus, though he will likely answer the phone. The hostel closes 10/1, but he will still provide shuttles.

    I am aware I'm headed into long-haul area. So far I have 2 6-milers planned for the whites....both start at the top of Mt. Washington LOL...but yes, I know that there are significant portions that I...

    Costco online has a "little" ebike called the Bolt Pro that is well worth the $399 price tag...at least for my purposes. The beauty is that if you don't like it you can always return it. Of course...

    I completely appreciate that. VT & NH are reasonably close so I can do day hikes/day trips, but most of the AT for me means an 12hr+ drive. I almost always try to do multi-day trips to make it...

    At 800 miles in, I believe at this point it has become a contest of wills.
    I know the AT will eventually win, but I plan to give it a hell of a fight.

    I despise "out & back" on the AT. It's hard enough the first time LOL! Also, I prefer to hike to my car, so I arrange transport at the start. It takes a little finagling to keep within my...

    I did some trail magic in GA in May, and included these in my "kit". At Gooch Gap and Unicoi Gap I set up "make your own PB&J" stations. They were a huge hit, and the squeeze container helped keep...

    Congratulations!

    I'm nothing but thrilled for you (not envious at all...no really, not at all ;)). I look forward to hearing the report of your adventures (but not so that I can live vicariously...

    I've been doing it for years. Last month spent 3 weeks in GA parking at Gooch, Woody, (5 days), Byron Reese (3 days), Unicoi, Dicks Creek, and Tesnatee. Not even a hint of a problem in any of them....

    My tent is 3000# and made of steel. If I get spooked, I jump into the front and prepare to drive away, or over an offender if necessary!

    Actually, I share the same fear, so for now have limited...

    Sew in velcro. A 2" soft strip horizontally on the body-side strap, and a smaller hook square on the outer strap will still give you some adjustment room. Make sure you DO NOT use the adhesive one...

    I have to disagree with Gambit. I drove up to Max Patch in May and the road was significantly deteriorated since I'd been there last October. I wouldn't take a sedan up it in it's current state. ...
