    Starting NB-QC hike imminently

    Hi everyone!
    At long last, after years away from the trail, I'm planning on getting back to it, except in my own country this time, mostly for logistics.

    Hey there!
    Very kind offer. I don't suppose I'll need any assistance that early on, but it's always nice to see a friendly face. I went to the AT (starting at HF, ending at Delaware Water Gap) a few...

    Long hike 2019

    Hi, friends!

    I was going to do a flip-flop in 2016, but had a light leg injury and plain ran out of funds.
    I've been wanting to get back on the trail and continue ever since, but it's been very...

    After some more talking with Jetboil they're going to send me a whole replacement cup! YAY! Even though it was my fault and it said not to do what I did in the instructions. So awesome. YMMV, lol.

    Update:

    The melted part of the cozy that is on the cup is hard as a rock and is kinda like industrial glue, it's just stuck there forever. I tried very hard with hot water, soap and a brush but it...

    Hi Wayne,

    Jetboil doesn't seem to offer international shipping. But I did find one version of the 0.8L cozy from a Canadian retailer, which I will probably get.
    However my worry is more about...

    Hi k_marsh4, I read this post and I just had to say, please consider doing a lot less mileage in your first weeks! None of the thru-hikers I met who'd made it to the halfway point did more than 10 in...

    Hi Laurie, thanks for your response! I got to HF on the train a bit too late to get to ATC but would have liked to. I got to the HI hostel instead and decided to stay there so I'd be well rested to...

    I think that's good advice Donde and I wouldn't be taking replies as legal counsel but still I think people have plenty of worthwhile opinions to share :)
  17. Canadian citizen, any problem with trip length?

    Hey again fine folks,
    my next question is whether I might have any trouble just crossing the border to hike the trail for say 1 month. And what happens if I just want to stay 3 months to finish the...

    Hi Treehugger, thanks for the reply!
    When people say that there are a lot of people on the trail... what exactly do they mean? How many people would you expect to meet in one day?
