    I have to admit- I looked like a beast when I hiked in 2015. I let my leg and armpit hair grow out, I chopped off my hair. I did have "town mascara." Sometimes I remembered to wear it. It was such a...

    What to do with garbage

    I kept my garbage in a plastic bag in my food bag. Hung it with the food. I had a separate bag that I had in my pack to put garbage I saw while hiking in- and that went into the food bag at night.

    RIP Tiger Mike. He was quite a guy- he was fun and curious and smart. I loved leapfrogging with him and his Trail family all the way up the trail.

    I used just the paper version of the AWOL guide. That was sufficient for me. I hiked with people with GutHook and they really liked it. I just liked the ease of glancing at the page.
