    The spring has never been running when I've stayed there. However, on a trip there a few years ago, I did find water a short distance down the Menomine Trail to the east- maybe about 15+ minutes...

    A bit late on this, but no shelters on the NCT near the Erie Canal.

    There are, however, numerous Adirondack-style shelters along the NCT where it runs concurrently with the Finger Lakes Trail,...
  3. Thanks everyone. This is very helpful.

    Thanks everyone. This is very helpful.
  4. Direct trail access between Dugger Mountain and Piedmont, AL?

    One of the online maps I'm using to prepare a rough itinerary for a thru-hike of the trail (the one at lifeat2mph.com) appears to show a link trail connecting the town of Piedmont, AL, directly to...

    I think it's pretty much a given that any tent site on the AT is open to all, provided that there is available space and that no local regulations concerning the number of people that can legally...

    30 degree bags might be a little cold for a June 1st start, as colder temperatures can still be a possibility in the northeast at night and at higher elevations that early in the season. With a...

    A 19 degree bag probably isn't a bad idea for someone starting out early on, but I think you'll likely find it to be overkill once you get further south and the summer season really sets in.

    I guess I should've specified that I am also looking for something that gives me a little bit of control over exposure, frame-rate, etc.
  11. I'll look into it, thanks. Can you lock the...

    I'll look into it, thanks. Can you lock the exposure on a Go Pro (for taking panoramic shots)?

    Video also really isn't that important to me.
  12. Best camera for a thru-hike that isn't a phone camera

    What cameras are people using for their thru-hike? I knot that a lot of people these days are just using their smart-phones, but I'd like to carry something that takes better quality pictures than...

    This really isn't true. LNT is very explicit in that concentration of use at established campsites is very much in keeping with the overall philosophy of minimizing impact in the backcountry.

    Reading material on the trail

    I did a quick search for previous threads on this topic but couldn't find anything relevant.

    I am someone that likes to read a lot while backpacking, for example while eating lunch or while...

    I agree- as I stated in an earlier post, I think that cold, rainy days ought to be a much greater concern than significant amounts of snowfall during my time frame. There is a chance that I might...

    Thanks. I can see the content on that page, but much of the rest of the content (including where I assume your links for navigation are) are covered by advertisements for Tripod.

    Thanks. You're the second person so far in this thread that has recognized me from another forum. Apparently my reputation has preceded me. ;)

    I took a look through time stamps from photos of previous long distance hikes I've participated in. The pace I've set for multiple 20 mile days with 2,000 or so feet of elevation gain per day has...

    Thanks, this is a good resource that I will definitely look into. He moved a lot faster than I plan to, but timing wise, it sounds like he was going through the Smokies pretty close to the same time...

    Thanks.

    I do have experience with moisture build up in sleeping bags. I'm not too worried about it over the earlier stretches of my trip, but it could be a concern later on if I do experience a...
