    I would have thought the opposite world ring true, Idsailor! Like, the hostels and whatnot have longer hours and are more likely to be open on holidays. That's a really interesting point though. A...

    Do you still keep in touch with Etienne? I'm sure he was grateful for your company, as well. I could sense your struggle/impatience as you reached the end of your journey and your journal entries...

    Great job on this! Cannot wait to see the second half!

    By chance, did anyone ask any nutrition questions for post thru hike? I think one of the biggest concerns I have about the trail is...

    I love that he deployed. I hate that they pulled him out before he finished his tour though. It was a great morale boost!

    I think the biggest "culture shock" when switching from military hiking to civilian hiking is the price tag. When I first started putting my gear together I kept thinking, well I have this Army...

    How long are you expecting to be out there? Most hikers start in GA in spring and don't deal with winter (except on a few mountains, which cannot be avoided). If you're hiking an average pace and you...

    I would never have gone AWOL, because that follows you for life. It tags you as a quitter and makes you not trustworthy, imo. That said, if I did go AWOL, I think the AT is a beautiful place to do it.

    I hear what you're saying Kookork, and I think you likely won't make the rookie mistake of not taking a spare battery next time you venture out.

    However, I do feel like your tone expresses the...

    WOO- most Gatorade has coconut in it. He could drink it up to a few years ago and just get a mild reaction, but now quite a few of their flavors are not allowed in our house.
