    Current thru-hiker, no camp shoes. I wear Hoka Speedgoats and they are all I need.

    If car camping I'll bring crocs or flip flops, but no camp shoes when I'm backpacking.

    Agreed. We only stayed in the barn because we were in the middle of a sleet/snow storm. Friends behind us had great weather, were able to tent, and I'm still super jealous.

    That's what we did, and we were in a decent sized bubble. No one got turned away during our stay.

    I'm using The One on my AT thru. As far as the material, I don't have to baby it, but I do recommend using a ground cloth. While the floor is thicker than the walls/ceiling, I did end up getting two...

    Most people I've spoken to the last few years that post to IG back-date their info. I'm leaving Springer in a week, that's what I plan on doing.

    Also, last I checked, #500 left today to head...

    Awesome, I already reached out to Ramdino. I don't have anything on my YouTube yet, but my Instagram is @daveisoutside .
    Also, I'm originally from Richmond, and definitely miss it!

    Exactly what I plan on doing on my hike this year. Seems like a good way to decompress in the evenings especially at the start when the days are shorter. Don't plan on sharing daily vids though, only...

    What was your bubble situation (if any)? I'm starting the second weekend of March, and the appeal of much more daylight/bigger miles is really very attractive.

    She'd be heading back home, so north to DC (or stopping somewhere halfway to break the drive up). We're hoping to have a friend along so that she won't be solo, but that could be slim chance.

    This is all good to know. My wife will be driving back out from dropping me off, and she'll possibly be solo, so I'd love for her to a decent route out.

    Thanks for the quick reply! Yeah, a snowstorm is not something I'm hoping for :)

    I've read the drive in from the west is better than the road from the east, due to the gravel road conditions?
  25. Question about Forest Service Road servicing Springer Mtn parking lot

    I believe it is USFS Road #42. Does this ever close due to inclement weather, or bad conditions? Looking to make a mid-March approach, will have a vehicle with good clearance (Jeep Cherokee). Thanks...
