    I didn't realize that youtube took down my video of this thru-hike, "Wall" and I did along the Adriatic Sea in Eastern Europe (Balkans) so, I changed some of the music and it seems to be OK with them...

    I rarely treat water. But then, I don't hike much on trails that get the kind of use that the AT does.
    If I did, I'd still not add my chlorine drops to what I see coming out of a seep. (my...

    For me? Coober Pedy, Australia.
    Pretty cool but we were underground in bunks carved into the walls. (Youth hostel)
    Coober Pedy is a fascinating place where they mine opal.

    Yes, all of the "Great Walk" trails were very well maintained and graded. They put money back into their trails for maintenance and signage, that's for sure.
    However the one that we did that was...

    Although this was my first time to NZ, I can't see that they are hurting for tourists. That 4th hike we did: North circuit of Tungolino NP, we must have seen 500 people in 2 days. Huts full,...

    Carried 12 days food once.
    Haven't eaten Ramen, or instant oatmeal since.
    I like to do 3-5 days (average mileage is around 20-25)
    But in the past few years, have done 6 or 7 days a few times.
