    Yes, I hiked around there in both directions this past February and used William (Rainbow Alpaca). His number is 484-560-7813.

    He is younger with a full time job so you will have to work around...

  3. FS: Womens Oboz Echo Low Hiking Shoes size 7.5

    I bought these for my wife, but she doesn't like the fit. She wore them once on a 10 mile day hike before she decided they didn't work for her. Finding the right shoes for her is a challenge, so...

    I disagree that it would be pure chaos, because I think it already happened. There were cases in Paris and Sweden far earlier than first thought. I believe the same for NY. Didn't they do a...

    I understand why you bring it back to the ethics of hiking, that makes sense, however the ethics *depend* on how we interpret the what is going on.

    If you believe as I do that your that the virus...

    You tell them nothing, it isn't your business whether other adults hike or don't hike.

    Do you also drive slow in the left lane to help enforce the speed limit?

    You could probably save some $$ getting larger car, since there are only three of you. Vans are substantially higher to rent than cars. Another idea is to take the bus to Concord and rent from...

    Sorry Slugg, I guess I should be more careful replying to the right person. :)

    Hi Ruth,

    Congrats. I started sectioning the Pinhoti last year myself. I am very impressed with it so far. Eventually, I hope to have hiked in a continuous path from Flagg Mt to Katahdin.

    Thanks for sharing! I took my kids hiking this past weekend on the Pinhoti, including my 2 year old. Out of the 9 miles we did, he hiked about 3 of them. He kept wanting down whenever we picked...

    If it wasn't for your May 22 date, then I would say #3. It will be muddy and buggy, and maybe even cold.

    I would vote for #1. You will want to start and end at Carvers Gap, which isn't far from...

    I just finished three days of section hikes in PA yesterday. As many have said the rocks are really not that bad. I consider PA one of the easiest states I have hiked on the AT. I hiked Ecksville...

    I ended a hike there once, in August and after completing a 20 miles day. Nobody will care what you smell like. Make sure you plan to end on a weekend because it doesn't stop there mid week unless...

    I have also hiked patchwork. At one point, I had 12 different individual pieces. I currently have 8 spread over the whole trail. As said, it is very satisfying to connect two pieces together to...

    I would disagree and say northbound is a little better. The climb down S Kinsman is narrow and has many medium sized boulders. If decending, you can take them one at a time slowly. The rocks that...

    Last July, I slackpacked the Kinsmans. I was one of my best days ever on the trail. It took me 10 hours and I had to rush a bit at the end to meet my ride. You will need to factor in a 3/4 mile...
