    I have a fear of snakes. It’s an irrational fear. It doesn’t really matter if it’s a garter snake, a cottonmouth, or a rubber snake. All the lights go off in my brain (though I’m much better about...

    If memory serves me, there’s a post over on Backpackinglight where a guy describes (with pictures) modifications he did to the window stuff—cryo-whatever. He used some packing tape to reinforce a few...

    Taking a different approach... could you talk to your doctor about a better pain killer for two or three nights, so you could legally stay in the shelters, and not have the horrible pain? I’m not...

    It’s been a long time since I was there, but it was quite obvious. Plus, I had stayed in the shelter, and before dawn, there was a parade of flashlights going to Myrtle Point as people from the lodge...

    I had used an inflatable U shaped pillow, from Walmart, that had a removable fleece outside. I could wrap it around my neck and it wouldn’t move around, like other inflatables I had used. Stuffing...

    I don’t remember what it’s called, but there’s some stuff that scouts use to attach patches. I asked at Hobby Lobby, a nice lady ushered me to the fabric area, and handed me a packet about 6 inches...

    I have a few of those old catalogs. They’re still fun to look at, and I look longingly at the old prices. Remember when almost everyone had a light blue Goretex rain suit from Campmor?

    Gambit, It's been so long since I lived near the Smokys, I doubt I'll ever be staying there again.

    CalebJ, It's the legality I was wondering about. It sounds like the official answer is no.

    Thanks Gambit. I thought that was the case, but wasn't sure. It would be a nice place to spend an evening and a morning, but there are other nice places that are legal.

    Thanks for posting that. I really enjoyed it. There were less shelters along that trail when I lived in the area, and I only twice remember seeing other hikers. Good luck on your hike!
