    The trade off is hours of daylight. It's not going to cool off significantly until late August, which pushes finishing into early October and by then you've lost a few hours of daylight.

    I listened to a guy near a shelter talking on his phone for a good half hour. He was trying to explain to his wife how to set the timer on their VCR so she could record something other. It was...

    The trip your planning would always require getting permits for the huts. If I remember correctly, there are several huts in that southern section which are located in open areas with few if any...

    If you want a "wilderness experience" you don't hike the AT. You go to an actual wilderness. But what exactly is a "wilderness experience" anyway?

    The smart phone is one of the handiest pieces of...

    At least in my area and across much of NH and ME we've gotten some significant rain the last few days and it will continue on and off into next week. Poor Gambit, he decided to hike up here this week.

    Looks pretty unsettled for a while. Saturday the 4th looks to be the best day in near future. Good luck. Afternoons are the high risk times.

    That should be fine. That keeps you a little ahead of the thru hiker crowd (what's left of it anyway) and a little behind the earlier Flip-Flop crowd, such as it is. You'll get to NJ/NY just as it...

    It will take some editing and formatting, but having it printed out into a book would be a good idea. It's not all that expensive to do. Left on a SD card, who knows what would become of it in 10-20...

    The most important thing to remember is there is like no shade on the CT. UV block sunglasses and a wide brim (cowboy) hat are must haves. Water can be little and far between and you'll need a lot of...

    Black flies have been mild in the Whites this spring, summer. Their still around a little though and here it is nearly July and a dry spring to boot. Who knows what it will be like next year.

    I hope the stream I draw water from for my cottage doesn't dry up. That will be a real pain. It's looking pretty marginal for this early in the season.

    Hiking around the Smokies isn't practical. You'd be best to simply start north of the Smokies and skip the southern end. Hike a ways into VA instead.

    You'd be best to stop at Lance Creek. And stock up on water when you leave, as there will be none until you get to Neel gap. Woods Hole and Slaughter creek are unreliable this time of year. A long...
