    Depends on your conditioning and pack weight. Last time I did that section, I went from Tray Mountain Shelter to Bly Gap. Then Bly to Winding Stair Gap. I am the same age as you for reference.

    Appreciate it! I'm not sure what I expected in the Smokies. We saw 3 rangers in the backcountry, one guy at Laurel Shelter and probably 15 or so at Mt. Sterling. Which I guess that makes sense as...

    Clock runs from the beginning of the attempt to the end. Supported, he could go into town every night and sleep at a motel if he wanted. So as long as he completes the attempt faster than the...

    Figured I would even throw a lighterpack that I will use this year for Damascus to Daleville in June. I run hotter than most so take that into consideration.

    Just a note in case the OP is still checking and will take the advice of a "YouTuber". In the past 5 years, I can recall 2-3 times where a cold snap has hit mid-May and people ended up miserably cold...

    Normally, $100 for spending on hostels or the like. Hotel/motels/lodges take cards as do most gas stations and grocery stores. If I know I am getting a shuttle, I carry the shuttle amount plus tip on...

    Just a side note, the permethrin instructions mention not applying it to under clothing, so you don't want to treat your boxer shorts.

    I do have to admit that I have had my eye on that mini-inflator as well. If you were to bring the pump sack, the mini-pump only weighs about an ounce more so personally, that seems to be worth it....

    They do, mine started blowing baffles on the BMT late last year. I sent it in and they sent me the new version back. The new one is slightly heavier, and when I inflated it, it actually looked wider...

    Every year is different but on average, that time of year, you would probably be lucky if it got below 60F on that section of trail.

    FKT attempt or on days I want to make miles, I may not be stopping anywhere with power except a gas station where I eat lunch. Always nice to get power when you can.
