    It's a ford as much your feet may get wet. It's usually a non-issue. As far as I know, it's the only picnic table on the AT in ME. It's a nice spot for tenting.

    Bring the puffy. Bugs should mostly be gone then. But, bring some repellent, just in case. You will have a lot of elevation change from the Bigelows South. You won't have the big climbs like in the...

    Car keys so I'm sure I'm not locked out when I get back to the trailhead. I never use them hiking, but it would ruin a trip if I lost them.

    What dates? It gets cold in the mountains. It sometimes snows in September. Are you sure you want to leave the puffy at home?

    My tent, my sleeping bag, my pack. I'd add a fourth, my food. And a fifth, my air mattress. Everything else is unnecessary waste.

    Hunnersdorf bottles work well in the Winter. It's all I use. One liter in a 40 Below bottle boot and one in my pack. Works in Sub-Zero temps and I know and keep an eye on my water levels. Tragic...

    I hate hot weather. I did some trail maintenance tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday on the GNLT, cutting up blowdowns and the like. It was really too hot to work, too buggy to take clothes off. Hiking...

    What does the manufacturer say about the comfort levels for women? Are they EN rated? Some companies advertise survival temps for men as their rated temps for the bag, or quilt.

    State park parking at the trailheads. It's free, for now. I've parked my car there several times overnight. No issues. Weekends, those lots fill up early. Pretty empty by late afternoon.

    Nope, they summited and went down a different trail expecting Gramps to be waiting for them. The only right answer was all three of them to turn around.

    Turns out the old man sent his 18 and 14 year old grandsons ahead without him. We know what poor decision makers teenagers are and probably not willing to argue with Grandpa.

    I'd get a 20* bag or Quilt. Sleeping bag ratings are normally a survival rating, not a "warm enough so I sleep well" rating. Yeah, it gets cold up here come September.

    I have a Cuben Fiber Unaweep and use a trash compactor bag as a liner. I use my Exped Schnozzle as my only stuff sack because I'm using it anyway to blow up my air mattress and pillow, so why not?...

    You need to find out what works for you and the best way to find out is to go hiking in the rain. A rain jacket works for me. Yes, I get wet, but I stay warm, which is more important.
