    I love all the Grandma Gatewood comments. I read a book about her and today's trail is VERY different, both in it's route and the people who live in the US. She stayed many nights at people's homes...

    Hike 1 is certainly doable if you are in decent hiking shape. I did it SOBO in three days in May. It's definitely "friendlier" IMO to go NOBO through that section. I did "encounter" a bear south of...

    I wanted to add that I prefer WB pages for this as the "map" doesn't really add much that the guidebook doesn't have other than pretty colors.

    the map set is essentially what I call a "strip map." While it's good for planning mileage it will do you very little for up to date trail info or if you do get lost (like in the White Mountains) or...

    I was always a guidebook, trail map (and compass) user. This year on maybe my 3rd or 4th hike I finally ditched all the paper and the compass and just used FarOut on the southern portions of the AT I...

    Wow! I didn't know cream of tartar had so much potassium! 1/5 of the DRA of potassium in 1 tsp. I don't know if I could "drink" enough of it in a day to compensate for not having it in my food but...

    while it does have some electrolytes, it's minimal for the daily requirements of potassium and magnesium. This is why I prefer to use potassium and magnesium supplements that pack a larger punch.

    Gatorade and similar products are a waste of $ IMO. They are very poor at replacing electrolytes as they are primarily SUGAR and some sodium. I use caplets to replace potassium and magnesium...
