    15 bucks for burger, fries and a shake? No way. Oh damn, I'll be back for seconds.

    Actually, last time I was down there the food seemed to be priced what you'd expect for a fast food joint. I...

    I once hiked with an older woman through PA. (flip flop started at HF). 20 miles from the DWG she couldn't walk any more. Stress fracture in one of the leg bones. Thankfully we were pretty close to a...

    The usual scenario is a coastal rain storm moves through, pushed out by an artic cold front. Not uncommon for that time of year. That can result in a lot of heavy snow or ice depending on exactly how...

    Drive to Amicalola? And then what? Abandon your car there? Yes, you can park there for months but what kind of condition do you think it will be in after that time? You'd also have to find a way to...

    Even after subtracting the fixed off trail expenses, 12K should be enough for a reasonably comfortable thru hike. The cost breakdown is suspect, but at this point it's just moving numbers around. Of...

    The Loft camp store might not open until late April, but I think the wayside (~1 mile away) is open. I made that trek to the wayside from Loft on the last two trips I did through there since the camp...

    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.

    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...
