    Fortunate to be on a small farm where I can loop about 10 miles together for hikes, with some elevation gain, but nothing comparable to anything AT. I have a day pack I throw free weights in and...

    I've used an Exped air pillow for quite a few years now - works good for me (side sleeper).

    From a quick glance at the link, it appeared to just be a workout plan that (my assumption) wasn't AT specific or likely even long distance hiking specific...one could Google as much for free and...

    Wait, people actually pay someone $40 for a "backpacking" training plan? Fools and their money I guess.

    Saw that this morning, along with fun video of toenail removal. Curious if she's going to give this attempt another go this year.

    I normally wear a 9.5, I wear a 10 comfortably in the Olympus 2.0 - thanks the find, great deal.

    I watched his FTK video not too long ago - very impressive feat and a very impressive fella.

    Some Interesting New FTK Projects Upcoming

    Anish is headed to Colorado.

    Hut to Hut – Samuel Jurek – New Hampshire – June 30-July 1
    Colorado Trail Unsupported – Heather Anderson –...

    Maybe it's just that you can't see her "story"? I noticed the same thing, but I could go to her Instagram page, but if there hasn't been an update to the "story", it disappears after 24 hours. Pure...

    Nice job, glad she's seeking medical attention, and hope she heals up and gives it a proper non-hitching go afterwards. Much credit to her so far.

    Yeah, I agree, basing that few weeks on the pictures I saw of her feet the other day - looks like she may have had a pretty good infection going in a toe, but hard to really tell from the brief...

    That'd be the best case scenario if she cares about actual besting Anish's FKT, which I'd assume she does based on the fact that she posted her intent on the FKT thread. Seems like she might have...

    For posterity - not sure how the Instagram "stories" work, but it seems like they might delete themselves or go away after a set period of time. Here's the capture of the admission of a hitch, just...

    Those are the ones I was thinking of, and they follow the precedent of those that came before her. To do any less and say you "beat" a record wouldn't be valid in my eyes. If I go out and make...

    She must know something of the self-governing rules or she wouldn't have announced her attempt to break Anish's record on the FKT Proboard. Somewhere on that same board are the rules Anish set,...

    She just said in an Instagram video that she got a hitch today in and out of town (not sure what town) that saved her 12 miles of hiking - doesn't that invalidate the "self-supported" attempt if you...

    I'm using the Olympus 2 now and love them, but they sure don't hold up for many miles, would need a few Bauer backpacks full of them to complete a thru.

    What, Eddie Bauer doesn't make great zero drops? LOL. ;)

    Following her journey and wishing her the best, but if I were a betting man, this is not where I'd be investing my money. Sounds like she's completely unprepared with no long...
