    Take it easy out there and stay vigilant when hiking. Too many crazy posts about these types of instances in the recent past.

    After seeing this thread and watching this guy on Youtube (Evan's backpacking videos) (no affiliation, I literally just found him on YouTube a few days ago), I kind of want to do this one maybe this...

    Boots Off was really nice, friendly people. Will stay there again for sure. I'd suggest this route as it's not too far from the trail itself.

    That's ok. Just looking for rough "guesstimate" of miles walked on the AT. Even if you've walked the same 20 miles over a over again, it all adds up.

    Something different.

    As I sit here virtual hiking the AT on numerous Youtube channels the last few days (Ok, It's been a LOT longer than that)...
    A few years ago I started a simple excel sheet and came up with a bunch...

    So... probably better to get a shuttle to the Max Patch parking lot. I saw that road on maps and thought it looked pretty rough and that was before all this years stuff started. Thanks, that's what...

    This is one section I was planning on this year, SOBO to Newfound Gap. Once everything opens up a bit, I have this same question. Is it safe for multi day parking?

    Yes it is. Most of the trail itself was never closed, just parking, trail heads, and shelter areas.

    My thoughts too. Why do away with it? It's a great conversational piece/ice breaker in the office. I worked for every mile of it, why not be proud to show it off a little bit?

    This thread is turning into nothing more than a snarky last comment thread.

    Well said. Lots of questions, everyone has an opinion. Truth is, NOBODY knows what will come of this so IMO just take general precautions and live our lives. No, there is no known "cure" and there...

    Maybe they should open up the entire trail so people can disperse a bit. If you have only certain sections open, they're going to be flooded with people as that's the only places they can go (people...

    I'd tell them to go hike and follow the guidelines from whatever state your in. ATC is bungling this one badly.

    Looks like great plan, with a backup plan. I'm planning one around the Smokies so I can get miles in and be with my brother who's sectioning the whole thing.

    I don't filter unless it's questionable. If it's right from a spring source or a steady running stream, I don't. But I will filter in water that's somewhat stagnate and not flowing well. I have...

    Seems a bit far off. That's like another month and a half out. I know Maine absolutely hates the "thru hiker" but this is ridiculous.

    I've got a 30 degree mummy bag that was issued to me in the military. I love it as it's comfortable, extremely light weight (like 2 lbs! and that's crazy for anything issued), very warm (too warm...

    With over 3300 miles on the AT, I've only used trail runners. My brother prefers a good boot so it's all personal preference. I went through 3 pairs of shoes. Believe it or not, I started out with...

    I only did a NOBO mainly because I took the traditional approach. If/when I get the chance to thru hike it again, I'll probably stick to NOBO. The Northernmost section was real hard for me and I...

    I was wondering the same thing about "checking for damage" when we're supposed to be clear of the trail and shelter areas. Seems a bit hypocritical to me the way that was written.

    You can't really rely on a designated plan. so to speak, for the entire trail. This trail will take its toll on your body (I lost 46 lbs on my thru if that's any indication). What I did was had a...
