    Every Lyme disease patient will proudly tell you how they preserved the structural integrity of the fibers in their Darn Tough socks by not treating them against ticks.

    Unless you are already in thru hiker shape you should arrange a food drop in the hundred mile. I met people using Shaw's who said it cost $80 to have your own food dropped. Some people tried to...

    So true. “Hard” is when the trail wrecks your body beyond what you can fully recover from during the night. You can discover this in NH and ME when hiking 8 to 12 hours daily. No single mountain or...

    Madison?? No. It's steep but the trail maintenance could not be better. You just walk up it.

    Southern Maine is the hardest part of the trail. But keep in mind that all of it is very doable. ...

    I'll also add that NH and ME mess with your head. You may be used to looking at mileage and total elevation gain to guesstimate how hard a section is and how far you can hike in a day. That won't...

    You won't know. People have vastly different hiking abilities out there. It's the hardest part of the entire trail. Consider going south instead and just ending where you end. If you do that you...

    I carry an InReach that sends my location out every 10 minutes. It just lets family see where I am. But the primary reason for carrying this device has been the ability to send text messages from...

    No, they are not “effectively saying” that either. No need to backtrack on your prior comment. You can just stop the false accusations entirely.

    The whiteblaze policy references discussion on HOW to break the rules. The poster did not discuss anything about HOW to skirt rules. I honestly can’t comprehend why this is hard to understand.

    Don’t be logical. Environmental impacts are not the issue here. A hammocker in the overflow area isn’t creating an impact. This is about enforcement of rules and our requirement to follow them.

    He said nothing about how to skirt the rules. He simply stated there may be a fine if you get caught. You are being hyper sensitive. I don’t know why this always has to come up when someone wants to...

    Ha! I disagree. There are numerous unmarked trail intersections. We would have never made it without GPS. This trail is simply not marked in many areas. My thru of the ST was in 2018.

    Don't recall it being hard to find. It's a fantastic view. No one was there when I went, but the trail is popular enough that it is easy to follow. Highly recommend.

    You're over thinking this. It's important to eat what has worked for you in the past. We don't all have our bodies trained to use nutrients the same way, and you can't change that quickly.
