    We have a bunch of the Eureka green tents that were popular at one point in our Scout Troop store room and they are in that range (20-25 years old). For the most part they aren't bad, though a...

    I suppose the benefit to wearing those weights would be to strengthen the ankles and wrists, which could help while hiking as injuring those parts can happen easily with all the motion in them and...

    Makes sense - thinking of a similar section outside of Pawling (NY) heading towards CT where you go through a locally owned nature preserve. They also have boardwalks that go on for dozens of...

    Probably it was a larger burger for that price then (say a quarter pounder vs. the "regular" 2.x oz. one that comes with the Happy Meal that is $1 these days)? Then again, one of the gas stations...

    The only place that they hopefully won't enforce that is for essential shoppers - there are many smaller towns in the eastern NY counties where a supermarket/pharmacy in MA (or further south CT, and...

    Seems like it could be possible as others suggested - more likely for those who can hike faster being starting later.

    Apparently some of the states don't either as those were among the places closed. Although of all the services in those groups it seems the most needed, as you can't control how fast it grows and...

    I would think that walking a dog is OK - even NY allowed solo exercise and said nothing about animals.



    And even if not it still counts as exercise for the day.

    Seems like staying in Alaska might be the best option - there are likely many places to go hiking wherever you are up there (and who knows when you might get a chance to do those normally) within a...

    It definitely seems like more of an impact, based on the way that trail is set up (many more areas that are remote and harder to reach) than what someone is likely to see on the AT side of the...

    Shouldn't be a huge issue, since just about any part of the country can access any part of the trail within a few days of travel via ground methods. After all, if one is doing a hike of many weeks...

    Hopefully now that they offer it in a package form they have eliminated the arrival time requirements.

    If one wanted a passenger seat (or even a couple), it should be easy enough to leave the front seat (on one or both sides) installed to provide that, while still leaving a fair amount of space behind...

    Just to clarify - I believe that is a Dutchess County Route 20 (US 20 is what you cross in MA just north of the Mass. Pike).

    Not much help on the shower, though - maybe someone needs to suggest...
