    Default How much time to you spend on White blaze during non hiking season?

    During the non hiking time of year (if there is such a thing) how much time do you spend browsing white blaze.. either reading, posting, or replying?

    If folks reply honestly this could be kind a fun!

    Since I am preparing to move to Fontana Village, and I am also trying to keep an informative site on the AT, I have been putting in a lot of time. I have the RSS feed which gives me all the new topics. Every-time I log in, I check all the new posts. At work when I get bored (often) I check out the site. I put in nearly an hour everyday.
    Once I move up to the mountains I plan on searching through 36 different newspaper websites along the AT for up to date news on the trail. So that should give me at least another 30 minutes.
    I heard Fontana only has dial up, so if that's the case I may be on twice as long... uhhh. I am hoping to get my wife involved since she will be home watching our kid.

    Default probably too much

    Honestly about 3-5 hours every night. Even more since i've become unemployed. Last night I looked at every single picture on whiteblaze.

    As long as my miles hiked stays ahead of my post count I'm content.
    Everything is exactly as it should be. This too shall pass.

    More than I should but I'm still learning from it and enjoying the viewpoints (and the personalities!) of most other WBers.

    Probably an hour a day, broken into a few little sessions. But, hey, I hardly ever watch TV, so this is my awake-but-not-doing-very-much rest time every day.
    If not NOW, then WHEN?

    I log in about once per day - and spend maybe 1/2 hour each time.

    I spend a total of 45 minutes to an hour mostly reading new posts, spread out over 5 or 6 log-ins each day.I'm not much of a TV watcher so this (the computer) is my connection to the outside world.

    I don't have a non-hiking season, I hike year-round.

    I dont think I have the time to add up the hours! As a newbie hiker planning a thru in '07, I find myself here ALL the time! It helps to be self-employed and work from home...

    I am constantly looking for the new posts, useful ideas, tips, tricks...

    Keep it up!

    I'm planning a thru hike for this year and spend about an hour a day on this site. I do it in small incriments with 3-4 "visits" a day. It's very informative. I learn so much every time I log on!!! Barbie

    I probably spend at least a half-hour, up to 2-3 hours a day, depending on how much time I have. I log on to Whiteblaze at least once a day. I'm addicted. I've learned so much here, and am still learning more.

    It depends how much time I spend on the silly political stuff......it has occured to me that the level of discourse here improves during non-election years!

    I actually spend more of my time on private correspondence with prospective thru-hikers, which I've found very rewarding. It's great to hear from these folks later when their trip is done, and several of them are now regular contributors here, giving back to other folks what they learned out there. Everyone has something to offer here, which is one of the things that makes this site so good.

    Question How much is too much

    I spend too much time, about an hour a day, but that isn't too much time to keep in touch with the many trail friends I have made, meet new friends, and renew and revive a million trail memories. Also there is no cheaper form of amusement than many of you guys, (and girls). Also it gives a simple country boy from Mount Vernon, Maine a chance to mingle and chat with the great legends of the trail.

    This site has sucked me in. I've had so much fun in the past week, slinging mud back and forth with some of you nuts.
