    Default A lot that was not helpful !!!!

    I learned very quickly that I had a lot that was not helpful when I started my hike. So I did quickly send a lot of things home and also changed some of my food mail drops. At the moment I can only think of 2 items that I did find helpful and I did acquire after I started hiking. One was a water bladder and hydration system, and the other was hiking poles. The hydration system was very soon after I left Springer Mountain, however it took me several hundred miles before I would admit that the hiking poles were for me. I did finally purchase a pair in Hot Springs and now I would not hike without them. Other than those 2 items, I can't think of any other item, except I did exchange some items for lighter weight models.
    Just my 2 cents worth. Happy Trails........ Ed

    I actually became envious of male thru hikers whose girlfriend came out to meet them for a stretch of hiking on the trail.
