    Nothing you could do about the situation at the time. Moving on would have been the best plan. I would have dressed the leader up and down and loudly before I left though.

    Hum, apparently it took him 10 months to hike the AT. That's really slow. He'd best cut his losses and go home. He was lucky this time.

    When I use the neoair, I blow it up tight, then after I lay down on it I let out just enough air so that my hip sinks into it a bit. This helps to keep me centered on the pad and not roll off it.

    There can't be many left now, their running out of time. The extended mild fall weather has been a help for sure. If that # includes HMW section "thru" hikers, then it sounds like numbers are down a...
