    I deleted it. They just want attention. It's just frustrating to think that people get a kick out of their own negativity.

    Very true. Nothing happened, and I very much enjoyed Hot Springs. There were a few things that happened in Erwin and Damascus however.

    I meant it was questionable that we were able to walk in without anyone knowing, and without seeing a soul. There was gear just laying out while its owner had gone to eat or resupply. Someone more...

    I stayed the night at Laughing Heart and loved it. The owner/manager was friendly and hospitable and pointed my friend and I to some great eats in town. We stopped by Sunnybank later to find some...

    I made it 13 miles into New York on my first thru attempt last year before finally deciding to call it quits. 100 degree temps at 10 in the morning plus exhaustion due to too much weight loss is what...

    The Smokies can get surprisingly cold in the summer. In mid-May the temps dropped to below 25 a couple nights, winter's last ditch effort to get a word in before summer took over I guess....

    Totally depends on your gear and how much you want to (or don't want to) carry. I carried what was basically a 48 L last year, but there were a few stretches where I needed to carry more food and I...

    TN 1330 at Hughes Gap, up Roan Mountain to Carver Gap, then up onto the balds of the Roan Highlands, and then down to Overmountain Shelter = one of my favorite stretches of the southern AT.

    I keep hearing about how a thru costs over $5000 or $800/month but I've never seen a breakdown of what that $800 is actually spent on. How many hotel stays versus hostel stays? How much per resupply?...
