    Sure, but not on the AT which is where the OP is doing section hikes. There was a thread earlier about how one could utilize these campsites by hiking off the AT, but that seems to be beside the...

    I'd say third week in Oct equates similarly to 1st week of March (not sure when you went last time), with less chance of snow in Oct (pretty much none actually, whereas March definitely). You'll be...

    OK, Nalgenes aren't all that heavy. I think more than anything, they're going to get nasty with use, and I think it makes more sense to trade out gatorade bottle after a while instead spending money...

    Where there is no "park" jurisdiction, the AT has no rules about hammock use. You pretty much only see these in managed parks. Same for other backcountry trails.

    My advice is to enjoy the...

    Don't know about Mill Creek Rd, looks like it stops well before the AT. Been a long time, but I know Wildcat Rd goes to the Gap, but is gated about a half mile from it I believe, where Moccasin...

    No one is getting a citation for being in overflow instead of the shelter as long as the shelter is full. To force one person out who wants to be in the shelter to ensure that there are only...

    So, first of all, the idea of hiking in prime thru hiker season (nobo) to avoid staying in shelters isn't a legal issue - let's just clarify that for future ref. I presume, the "apologize later"...

    Your perspective is out of the box, enough so to wonder where it comes from? But I hiked with a friend of mine who unbeknownst to be before our planned 4day/3night trip, hiked without a pad. First...

    Keep in mind that the type of diet you're talking about is for the modern human. You're doing a more primal activity. What works for you at home may not work as well on the trail. Probably does at...

    An anti-shelter friend of mine was telling me of his Smokies AT trips, all done at peak thru hiker season in order to avoid having to stay in the shelters. Its a calculated crapshoot, but probably...

    I used the RR with a pad and it was thick enough so that when I turned on my side, my knees touched the rigid hem of the hammock where it narrows. I gave it up and went back to my gathered end.

    No reason you couldn't start Ga Nobo in April and flip to Sobo in July or early August. That's how I've been considering doing it so as to enjoy fall in NE at the last of the trip.

    Couldn't agree more regarding putting labels on folks. I think the ATC got it right making it a 2000-miler designation, irregardless of the "thru hike" specification. And regarding slack packing,...

    Have to say that was my first thought as well. 15-20m per day? I can do that easily on flat terrain, but you need to know that the AT is anything but. There are some periods of ridgewalks, but the...
