    My favorite thing is starting to hike at the crack of dawn but the main down fall is clearing spider webs. Sometimes you see them in time to stop and sometimes I wave my poles in front when they seem...

    Can't they have it "hike at your own risk" with it posted everywhere to protect land owners from getting sued? Or it just doesn't work that way?

    my McHale Pack has straps to attach it under the top lid, he's got a good system... but my pack is so big I've just been putting it inside with plenty of room to spare. I actually have to keep it...

    It was the flying squirrels that got me to start using a canister and will never turn back. I've also admittedly and shamefully got at least 4 'throw sacks' and line of rope stuck in trees that I had...

    That's good, I was getting worried when I just refreshed the map and it showed him still at Jo Mary Rd. or maybe that's just something on my end....

    The race between Scott and Joe on the map has also been interesting, number 3 and 5. Though I'm not sure why they both drop off and reappear on the map at times. It's amazing to me how fast Joe went...

    There's a few tricks with the ground sheet and one is to definitely have it a little smaller the the tent to prevent water coming in-between. Next if rain is expected I try to camp somewhere where...

    There has to be delays of some sort on that map. Last night the gap looked like 20 and now at 7am this morning it looks just under 40.

    he's almost cut it to 20 miles behind, looks like 22-23 right now. Well put though that 2nd is still incredible. Hopefully he doesn't push it too far trying to catch up.

    this is so close, I've been checking the tracker daily. He was behind a couple miles until the last few days he jumped ahead a couple every time I looked. Now he just fell behind but I imagine will...

    They sure served some nice healthy (by trail standards for sure) meals while I was there and I found them both to be great people, busy for sure. This was only judging by one nights stay but...

    That's too bad, I loved that place. If I was going through the area I would call and see if I could donate some extra money for them to be able to pick me up. Only because I loved it so much there...
