I need some input on where (location or month) most folks change their gear from the cold weather gear to warm weather. Do most thru hikers just keep the gear they start with or change? I don't get cold easy so I could probably stand changing a little earlier than most hikers (due to the extra layer of body fat that I have) I know I will want to change the sleeping gear and get rid of the heavier jacket at some point but I may just keep the backpack and regular clothing that I start with. Any advice from anyone would be appreciated.
