    A while back (maybe 2-3 years ago) a woman joined WB and posted a thread questioning whether it was safe for a lesbian to hike in the rural South. Annoyed, I briefly considered a sarcastic response...

    When we went to Dragon's Tooth, there were a few people who had camped there at the base of the rock. Not sure if that's "allowed" but it was done.

    The approach I'd take is to use equipment that will be useful to you later. Maybe duplicate what you already have, which doubles/triples your capacity, but also gives you a replacement for your...

    There's an "abandoned" tunnel in the smokies near Bryson City. A road-building project was abandoned, and the tunnel sits at the end of it. It's incorporated in the trail system, including the...

    Yay! Glad she enjoyed her trip. If the weather cooperates, I'm hoping to take the family to Carver's Gap this coming weekend. I've promised them they'll be astounded.

    If you plan to hike other trails besides the AT, prepare to fight your way through some tall weeds wherever the sun breaks through the trees. Not so much in June, but July and later. Weeds can...

    We are in a similar condition physically, and chose to do the Whites hut-to-hut (check into getting an AMC membership first). Expensive, but still cheaper than vacationing at the beach.
