    Wow Malto.. I think you need more electrolytes cupcake. 55 mile days? This thread is about a thru-hike, not a trail run. There's a stark difference between the two. A hike by definition is walking,...

    See my previous reply. There are outliers in every random sample. I guess my thinking is more in line with backpacking than thru-hiking. Forgive me! The horse is screaming, so we should quit beating...

    No doubt resupply is easier on the AT, but the cumulative elevation gain is a good deal more than what's encountered on the PCT, and what about this statement from the AMC?

    It appeared to me that he enjoyed it a lot more when he knew he was going to complete his goal. I met him on the trail in 2016 and he only spoke when I engaged him despite at least 12 hikers being...

    It's hard to pinpoint the problem being hikers or tourists. I wouldn't call LeConte the backcountry. Maybe if you approach from the Boulevard, but the Alum Cave trail is a mess. I hike up to LeConte...

    LeConte is tourist central and for a good reason; it's the best area in the entire park. I wouldn't be too worried if they mandated bear canisters, even with the added hassle and pack volume it would...

    Why directly quote a comment about the AT and then talk about the PCT? The PCT isn't even remotely close to the AT. I've never thru-hiked the AT, so this really isn't about everyone being like me,...

    As stated, most hikers have already hiked at least 9 miles before hitting the NC/GA border a short distance from Bly Gap. I've never heard anyone say they enjoyed the climb out of of Bly Gap. The...

    I was going to mention JZ. He slept in one day and lost several hours, so she might have a good chance of beating him if she wakes up on time!

    Why limit yourself to 85 days of walking 3-4mph for 15-20 hours? Just run half the time and you can do it in 60 or maybe beat the record of 45! Seriously, if you're trying to get it done as quickly...

    If I were you, I'd look up a guy that lives near you named Bill "Skywalker" Walker. He's a thru-hiker and has written several books. I bet he knows all the great vendors for you tall folk.

    I prefer Injiji Trail toe socks and Injiji Coolmax liners. The liners get a little beat up once you get past 200 miles of use, but I don't get blisters and they are comfortable soaking wet for 10-15...
