    OPINION:

    There seems to be an idea out there in some people's minds that almost everybody in the US is just staying at home everyday - that everyone is holed up waiting this thing out. It just...

    Hmmm, yeah, that would seem to violate physical distancing standards - for strangers anyway. That said, people are getting REALLY bored. It brought up memories of this...

    As a rough guideline, and where it would be reasonable, most trail clubs clear/trim the trail to a minimum roughly 4 ft wide x 8 ft high - imagine that a 4 x 8 sheet of plywood could pass down the...

    Some often overlooked items: Toenail clippers? Tweezers for ticks and splinters? GI can opener (P-38 or P-51)? Sewing needle and thread? Benadryl (in case of allergic reaction to stings)? ...

    Possible, but it's very likely that even in small towns on the AT local residents have already been exposed. It's not like the local residents don't travel to nearby towns or businesses, etc. This...

    I believe that I have always gotten logged out after some time of inactivity. Probably some setting that I'm not aware of. But I never check the box. I'll check the box and see what happens. Home...

    The "remember me" box appears to be hidden in the advertisement just under the login. Usually it seems to be a "Whiteblaze pages" ad. You can make out the little box if you look really closely.

    15,120 the second time I played. You have to be really, REALLY exact where you click to get big points which is difficult. Got two 5000 pt ones - one on the Kennebec Ferry, the other on Hanover.

    Except that at this point in time, we don't have enough masks for the medical professionals, nevermind the general public.

    The notice does say that the trail itself remains open, but shelters are "discouraged". Discouraged means don't press your luck - avoid them.

    Back in the 70's and 80's I didn't have a trail name. It wasn't until I started hiking with my daughter in the late 90's that we both got our trail names. One day we were hiking on a planked...
