    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.

    I don't know if it's actually prohibited, but it's certainly not a good idea.

    I climbed North and South Twins yesterday and my partner said "lets do Galehead too while we're here - it's just over there". Actually, it's way over there.

    Getting to Galehead meant getting on...

    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.

    There's only two practical places to camp along there. The old Mount Resolution shelter site and at the Davis/isolation trail junction. Leaving the trail for any reason is not a good idea in that...

    That route looks kind of sketchy to me. You have some real hard days and few camping options. Add the afternoon T-storms and scattered showers all next week, doesn't look good.

    A better option is...

    I wouldn't recommend it until the fall or if it rains a whole lot soon. I was just up on Resolution/Stairs recently and it was dry, dry, dry, although I didn't try to find the old shelter site. I...

    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...

    It was pleasant up in that general area yesterday. Just enough breeze to keep the bugs mostly away. I was down to T shirt and shorts, which doesn't happen too often up there.

    Shelters tend to be located in sheltered areas (duh) and often face east, as storms generally come in from the west. So there aren't many with direct views, but there are a few. Riga shelter (last in...

    I don't know if AMC tent sites are officially open yet or not. You need to call to make sure. Once north of RT 2, that won't be an issue.

    May is a month early to go NOBO. You'll have a lot of cold and rain and likely run into snow if you make it to VT and NH in average time. Late April is a more practical time to start. Still cool and...
