    If you think I'm wrong, feel free to disagree. That's what the internet is for. But your sarcasm doesn't help anything and is off-topic. Have a nice week!

    Um, maybe because it was winter, and that's a terrible time to train in the Whites unless you are highly experienced with winter hiking/backpacking? Training last fall wouldn't have done her much...

    If you're really concerned about shaving grams, pick up a single-thickness windshield screen (basically just like the reflectix you have except with just one layer of bubbles instead of 2). It works...

    Yeah, I would see a doctor ASAP. Everyone in my family has allergies, and I've never heard of anything like this.

    Did you read the article, Dapper? That's a misleading characterization. There will still be free parking on the main road through the area. Plus you can park for free at the next trailhead east on...

    I've parked here a number of times, and I don't see a problem. Parking on 517 will still be free, and that's where I've always parked. You can also park for free on 94 and hike in from the east...

    A 0 degree bag will not cut it for the high-elevation sections north of Ghost Ranch. I live at 7000 feet in northern Arizona, and regularly get down to 0 or just below in winter. For the much...

    This just isn't doable in winter. The northernmost sections get up near 10,000 feet (ditto for Mt. Taylor, which is 11,000). There will be feet and feet of snow in winter. A hiker died just off...

    You should always tip your Uber/Lyft/whatever driver. The "wages" those company pays are paltry.

    Some services let you do the tip electronically, but not all. So keep some cash on hand.

    I gotta say...I feel really bad for the future of the PCT because it seems like a lot of the newer hikers are super entitled and feel like they own the trail and make the rules. You don't.
