    That's a very generous offer. Unfortunately, I have one of those non-refundable airline tickets. Maybe they'll oversell the flight and bump me in which case I will definitely take you up on your...

    Thanks for the input. I kind of knew my chances of getting a ride were slim. Nevertheless, the suggestions on how to kill the time in Boston are welcome. It's been over 50 years since I was there,...
  3. Ride to Northern New Hampshire from Boston

    I know this is a long shot, but I have to try. Tuesday, I'm flying into Logan Airport in Boston. My plane arrives about 10:30 AM. Then I have to wait until almost 4 PM for a bus to Gorham, NH,...

    I have used Guthook on the AT. It shows current position and distance to water, shelters, campsites, towns, etc. I used it every morning while hiking to ensure I didn't turn the wrong way when I...

    If you could fly into Reagan airport, you can catch a train to Harper's Ferry. I've done it and it's very convenient. I remember from my research that going from Dulles gets more complicated. I'm...

    Thanks for the input. I have a 30 degree sleeping bag, which should be alright - I hope.

    I had never hiked before I did my first LASH in 2016. I ended up with a sprained ankle and big knee problems, so off I went to the VA and physical therapy. The problem, they said, is weak muscles...

    Here is an image taken from Guthook where two separate hikers who passed the Ensign Cowall Shelter within the last couple of weeks commented on the water situation. Both agree that hikers should get...

    You're correct about the off trail distance to Raven Rock Shelter. I misread the AT Guide and picked up the distance to Richie Road (.6 mile) in error.

    As for the water situation, if you take...

    I watched this video and Sara appears to have done her homework on this guy. I hope those hiking the CDT see the video. I shudder to think there might be a situation similar to what happened on the...

    I've been doing the AT NOBO in long sections. I found that the trail is less crowded hiking in September and October. Of course you probably don't want to be in Maine at that time of the year if...

    I have a friend (non-hiker) who was really impressed with the woman's "skill." I laughed at him. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought she made some questionable decisions and had poor...

    Enjoyed your trip report. I did that section NOBO and further to Gorham, NH last year.

    It's really disappointing to hear about the guy with the tent and lamps in the shelter. Aside from being...

    I always enjoy the pictures and trip reports. And I still marvel at your ability to carry heavy backpacks. Whew, 90 pounds! I'd probably be seeing a Chiropractor for the rest of my life if I...

    Why don't you buy Mountain House by the can? You can distribute the contents into Ziploc freezer bags (only!) with only the amount you intend to eat. The cans are less expensive than buying the...

    Spot and InReach are the popular ones. Rather than go into detail, check out their web sites. The units are not all that expensive, but it's the yearly fee they charge that gets you. I have a...

    They may not have rules against it, but they have published an opinion in their quarterly magazine, Journeys, and not too long ago either. Of course they cite the poor hiker etiquette of setting up...

    If it's any help, in 2017 I started at Harper's Ferry on September 15 and reached Palmerton on October 1. I am a slow hiker, but I put in some big miles (for me) in Pennsylvania. Yeah, the rocks...

    Well, I don't anticipate going back to Erwin any time soon, but if I ever do, I'll miss that Huddle House. I had one of their "give me everything" breakfasts and then I had apple cobbler for desert....

    Funny Trail Days video but I have a question. Was that a put-on or did Pesky really get thrown in jail? She was handcuffed in the police golf cart and then they went to "bail" her out. Having been...

    I saw his latest video. He did over 12 miles although it seemed he was motivated by a McDonald's that was ahead on the trail. I thought he was hiking pretty fast, too. It will be interesting to...
