    stuff for sale question

    At the expense of possibly sounding like a fear-monger, I'd say be wary of Venmo and money transfer apps like it. Venmo has cited numerous security breaches resulting in consumers' banking info being...

    8" boots for ankle support

    Taller boots are probably not the solution, strengthening the ankles would be a better bet. Ankle workouts are typically the kind you can work in front of your TV. There's plenty of YT videos out...

    AT Nobo, is not a Wilderness experience

    You shouldn't base your opinions of the whole Trail on your findings in Georgia. Of course there are going to be ridiculous numbers of Trail Magic at the beginning of the Trail, that's where the...

    Suggestions for a Down Jacket

    Why do you say they are pointless? I loved mine on my hike, never had to be overly cautious around sharp plants or fires and it kept me warm when I needed it to. Isn't that the "point" of a down...

    Steep parts of AT

    For northbounders, the descent into Duncannon, PA was the sketchiest of the trail in my opinion. It's super fine gravel on a crazy steep decline. Albert Mtn. in NC was pretty steep for a hot minute,...

  14. Is 100 miles the longest distance between towns/resupplies?

    The 100-Mile Wilderness is not as "big and bad" as it's made out to be. I'm not a mile maniac and I did it in just over 3 days of hiking. No need for a big resupply, unless you are planning on...

    ZPacks Food Bag or Ursack???

    The point of the Ursack is to have it tied far from your (or anyone else's) campsite, so if a bear does come in for a peek, it won't be near anyone. If hanging your food is too much trouble already,...

  20. Hammock vs Ground System: Situational Advantage

    I can second your tree-finding conundrum in Vermont, it reminded me of the stories of those lost at sea: surrounded by water with nothing to drink.

    mardingtop? 65l+10

    No experience using one, but usually when they list a size and a + extra amount, they mean in the external pockets. So, the pack is 65L, but the extra pockets total and additional 10L.
