    It only takes one incident for a landowner to decide to close access to his/her land. Doesn't matter if it's illegal camping by a nice hiker or snowmobiles digging up a cornfield. Respect property...

    A bit off-topic, but inn-to-inn (or hostel-to-hostel) walking is very popular in Europe and Great Britain. I'm sure it has a lot to do with the relative lack of open space compared to the US, but...

    Just a thought on all this - we often use the acronym HYOH, for Hike Your Own Hike. We could also embrace LOHTH - Let Others Hike Their Hike.

    It's none of my business whether you choose to carry...

    I still have my circa 1969 Kelty A4 pack. Used mostly for carrying trail/shelter maintenance tools nowadays. Still can't beat it for ventilation.

    That's how I hiked the ADK 46 - 2 hour drive to NY - 15-20 mile day hike - 2 hour drive home. Had a blast, just to get all the hills that were on that list!

    Slackpacking is still walking, and I doubt anyone who chooses to slackpack regrets it at the end. They can do it again with no slacking if it bothers them! Right now, I say I won't, but only...

    I've always just thought of it as "driving the pack" (I didn't invent the term) - tightening or loosening or adjusting things as you hike is just how packs work.
