    Friend of mine is applying. She is/was pretty hot (I haven't seen her in a while). Pretty social and enough of a dirty hippy that I think she has a good chance!

    My experience is that nobody cares...at all. I clearly remember my first long distance hike where I was staying at a hostel with people I had just met. An early / mid 20s girl came out of the...

    I did it for about 200 miles. Worked fine dry but took to long to dry out when I got them wet. Switched to trailer runners and happier overall.

    Different suggestions than what I was expecting, which is good. There is no galley on the boat. I'll be using this on the deck either in rod holder or most likely just holding it still somewhere.

    I like the idea of a hammock because I don't care for shelters and it seems like it would be easier to find two spaced out trees than a nice flat tent site. I can't see sleeping on my stomach in one...
