    In normal times, most of the waysides open in late March. Loft is listed as mid April. But these are not normal times so before relying on waysides, best confirm they will be open.

    I turned 68 a few days ago. How many good years do I have left? I hope at least a couple. My plan is to make it to 75, then start to drink and smoke heavily :) In the mean time, I don't think I...

    Didn't they mostly use the rivers? Settlement next to the river, hunting grounds in the nearby forest. I believe there were some well defined paths which got turned into roads.

    Well, hard to say, but I for one would not want to hike Vermont in early May. Even it it turns out to be a fairly dry spring.

    I'd suggest starting a bit farther south, like at the NJ/PA line in...

    Of course their hoping conditions improve and restrictions are removed sometime this spring. But considering things are getting worse and the vaccine is in short supply, that seems unlikely.

    You could try "Liquid Stich". In the sewing department. It works good on nylon and Tyvek is a similar porous material.

    It is highly unlikely any of those trees still exist today. Although the trees pictured look strange, natural forces can cause that kind of growth and those trees are likely less then 50 years old.

    They maybe having trouble finding someone to manage it. But it's still kind of the off season. It won't really get busy there until March.

    Or could they be doing their part to discourage thru...

    I think the concern here is not hiking in the wind, but camping in it. There really is no telling when a branch will come down or a tree will fall over. A tree which looks perfectly sound can be...

    I can't tell you how many "camp shoe" (and hiking boot, yes boot as there is only one) along the side of the trail I've come across. They seem to fall off the back of packs pretty easily.

    Just hike RT 9 until you get to the AT :)

    Looks to me the best you can do is link up a whole lot of secondary roads which head more or less in that direction. `I have a map called OpenCycleMap on...

    Are you looking for overnight trips or day hikes? One possible day hike loop would be out of Palmerton. Climb out of the gap on the AT, then loop back on the winter trail. That is one of the more...

    There are other options. As Gambit says, the southern end of the AT in PA is pretty mellow. Basically a walk in the woods. I only took about a dozen photos along the AT in the entire length of PA. I...

    Never heard of Jim Thorpe, had to google it. Looks to be an interesting area in the Poconos. The AT is not very close to that area and the part which is, is very rocky and the section which gives PA...

    You'd have to check their web site. I don't think the park pass applies to lodging, which the huts would be considered. You need to apply for a thru hiker pass when you get near the park and pony up...

    There's always at least one person who sleeps soundly - and loudly. The rest, maybe not so much. I don't find ear plugs all that helpful. Ear plugs dims the noise some, but not nearly enough to be of...
