    I seem to recall hearing my nephew did a thru with a bivy. It was a light weight alternative to a tent back before things like tarp-tent became a thing.

    Interesting a tarp yes very view like Evan but not a bivy.
    That is BS. Back in the 1990's, there we several of us who just used a bivy for our entire thru-hike. I used a bivy for Ward Leornard myself both used bivies for our thru-hikes. I'm sure several others also used it for their as well. It had several advantages over a sleeping bag starting with it was lighter and we did not have to worry about it getting wet.

    Ok calm down, I just got information from Homemade wonderlust video. One graph from the trek magazine shows 0% used bivy and I forgot where the other graph came from but it showed 4% used bivy. So I was probably a little extreme with my head liner. It's obviously been done.
    Apologies and sorry I didn't mean to offend anyone.
    But hey now we know,thanks for the truth wolf.
    That's one reason we're here, yes. Drag the waters to get to the truth of things!

    The graph in the video was a survey of what long distance hikers used on the AT in 2021, and only reflects survey participants for that year.

    Ok crap my bad! There's yolk on my face! I'm gonna blame it on my attention deficient disorder. Thanks for dragging the waters and getting to the truth I didn't know.
    So ok well if anyone else wants to chime in on a bivy thru go for it!

    I used an LLBean bivy for section hiking, some of my ADK46 and one of my NLP Backpack thru. I loved that bivy. Then in 2001, I ran into a thru who was using the same LLBean Bivy. I don't remember his name, but he carried it since GA. This was around SoPA.
    .....Someday, like many others who joined WB in the early years, I may dry up and dissapear....
