    Personally, I don't carry a knife anymore, lighter is in my cook pot and an extra in my F.A.K. Toothbrush is in my F.A.K. as that is also where I store floss and such.

    Appreciate it! I worked with them on the Pinhoti after the initial tracks had been done, its definitely time consuming.

    You could always leave it at the Ranger station from what I understand. You could also potentially leave it at Standing Bear and hike from the BMT terminus to there. That makes for an easy jump onto...

    That's ironic as I think I had 1 day out of 16 where I saw no people. I guess if I didn't count the friend I hiked through the Smokies with, we had 2-3 days where we saw no one else. When I went over...

    I'm with you on the dislike of bear bagging. Funny enough, I was asked last year to teach a group of late teen/early 20 something guys how to bear hang by their dad when I was on the AT.

    I always enjoy your reports, and this one even more since I hiked through some of the areas on the BMT. I was hoping to run into you when I went through last year.

    You can pick which year you want to use for the data points. Granted, it won't have everything.

    I've had one for just over a year now, warm, light and packs down small. My medium weighs 7.37oz 7D/7D. I don't have the hood as I prefer to be able to vary the level of coverage on my head.

    Any updates? I am looking at maybe hitting the Trace in 2022, but I always like to be able to research in advance. I am aware there is other data available before that gets brought up.

    Appreciate that link! Now that they have released that orange robic I am really having to consider it. It would make a great pack now for hiking and hunting, no need for a orange pack cover anymore!

    The next campsite I remember after Indian Rock Shelter was at Hudson Gap. Not saying there weren't any before that, but that is the first I recall and Guthook matches that info.

    Quicksand stopped in there on his AT NOBO a week ago or so and they told him they were not opening the hostel this year due to Covid concerns. That was the last I heard.

    I use the Toaks light 550, but then again, my only use for a pot/stove is warming up water to add to protein shakes when I am out and it is slated to be below 40 degrees on the trip.
