    Geenpete does make a good point about all the extra gas burnt in shuttling hikers around everyday. Of course, most of us get in a car and drive to town for resupply every couple of days, so there's...

    August? I'm already seeing some trees turn color in the valley. Early fall I suspect. Early and lingers I hope. May keep SAR busy.

    There are many shelters, some are close together, some are farther apart. While you can find a spot off the trail here and there, your better off at shelters as you have a privy for safe disposal of...

    The NJ rocks aren't nearly as bad as the PA rocks. After PA, many thru hikers comment how surprisingly nice NJ is. Then NY kicks you in the butt again until you cross the Hutson.

    I'm not a fan of the GSMNP. The weather is never any good (4 out of the 5 times I've been there in late April/early May), there's way too many people crammed into the shelters and the whole permit...

    I like the section north of I40, but it's not easy. If your used to western trails, the AT will be quite a shock since we don't believe in switchbacks. You go straight up and straight down. And Mid...

    Hitching into to Gatlinburg is usually not much of a problem. Going the other way can be much more challenging.

    Well, at least they aren't carving their names into the woodwork with knives like in the good old days. That takes time and effort. A Sharpie is so much easier. Eventually, the walls will need a new...
