    Not unusual though. JPD had issues with shin splints starting out as well. She's off to a good start IMO. If she can sustain a strong pace for a week, my optimism will grow immensely.

    I'll give her credit - her Hellgate time is certainly solid.

    By the way, the link above for her site is messed up. Try this:

    Agreed - experience seems to be sorely lacking. That she convinced Warren to support her crew is interesting, but other than that I don't see much here.

    Mine always stay outside. Give them a quick shake before sliding them on in the morning.

    I hope they've added it back. It apparently was an option at one point, but when I bought one based on that about a year ago it was yearly only. Very disappointing and expensive mistake.

    My biggest frustration with the Spot was the service contract requirement. If being stuck in a 12 month contract isn't an issue for you, and you don't need the flexibility of writing out custom...

    Sweet Christmas.

    One of these days I need to figure out how to actually -run- an ultra and not just survive it. The only time I've even come close was Holiday Lake about five years ago.

    Oil (or any pure fat) is around 240 calories per ounce.

    A friend went up yesterday. I was stunned to see her pictures afterwards with her very comfortable in a t-shirt on top. So different from my experience in March.

    Paying attention to calories per ounce is a good idea, but be absolutely sure it isn't the highest priority. You cannot go down that road and forsake overall nutrition as well as carrying foods that...

    It's just odd visually. My recollection from the last time I was there is that you follow blazes up to the road and suddenly can't find the next one. Other than that (and a guidebook if you have...

    It's definitely an odd finish. Almost hard to be sure you're actually at the end. Congratulations on getting it done!

    I agree with pretty much all of that, colorado_rob. With the minor addendum that cautious and patient mountaineers have a more successful track record of making it back to base camp after the...

    It's hard to imagine someone taking the time to close it. When I was on it for a week a few years ago, I only saw hikers one day.

    Will it spread in spite of masks or social distancing? Yes.

    Will it spread at the same rate? Absolutely not.

    Will the number of people that succumb to it be affected by the rate at which it...

    What -he- meant was unambiguous. He feels our system is underwhelming and its capacity could be exceeded.

    Yours was rhetorical. Try explaining your own position directly. Do you feel our system...

    It's all fun and games until you actually deal with giardia. Miserable experience I'd rather not repeat.

    He's not asking for any sort of special privilege the way I read it. Just for each of us to follow the general recommendations and stay in our own backyards. He in his, you in yours, I in mine.

    Sure - but is the cost really worth it for the incremental percentage in weight improvement vs an off the shelf option that's lighter than what you have now? Again - I absolutely love my MLD pack. ...

    Honestly, at that amount of weight I'd probably stick with something like the Exos. I love my Mountain Laurel pack, but the weight savings of ultralight materials (and going frameless) just isn't...

    What's your approximate gear weight (fully loaded with food and water) that you'd be putting in the pack (not counting the pack itself)?

    At this point there's no consensus on them being either under or over reported. Just theories in both directions. And none of that discussion relates to the ethics of thru hiking right now.
