    It's slowly dawning on me that overseas travel may not be on the cards for 2021...

    It's been difficult to predict the course of the pandemic beyond a month or two out, so hopefully I am wrong and...

    Yes, this is a little unclear. It's the Pfizer vaccine now, but I suspect the Oxford vaccine (which is easier to transport and store) will come next and be more generally available here. I'm in the...

    I can't comment directly on A.T. conditions (I live 3,000 miles away from the trail), but I am hoping to complete The Great Outdoors Challenge in May. This is a backpacking trip across Scotland,...

    I agree with this. I think the calculation will be different at the beginning of this upcoming thru season (say, March and April) than they were earlier this year. There are at least two vaccines,...

    We had the same thing here in Scotland. Our mountains are 3,000 footers (called Munros, after Sir Henry Munro, the first person to climb all 200+ of them), and people collect them. Parking lots...

    I agree with this. Relatively speaking, being on-trail should be safe.

    On a different note, I hope there are some good youtubers on trail this year, because I need some new folks to follow...

    How will Covid-19 affect hiking in 2021?

    The Appalachian Trail Conservancy has requested that thru-hikers continue to postpone their hikes:

    I think that this is a good take on things. Perhaps some part of the season can be salvaged, but it will be different.

    OK, another dimension to the ethical issue...

    What if people stay on trail and, inadvertently, spread the virus to trail towns? (And I suspect this might be more germane to the PCT, where small...

    O.K., do we call it? Is the AT thru-hiking season done, except for those already on trail (and even for them, in all likelihood, eventually)?

    Great link!

    It looks like the numbers are increasing rapidly throughout Europe now.

    I was wondering the same thing: how might the coronavirus affect the trail (experience) this year?

    It's early days, so of course at this point we can only speculate, but here are mine..

    Absolutely agree.

    It's also fun seeing his interactions with the other PCT thru-hikers as they catch and pass him.

    And on a hiking note, he is starting to up the miles a bit with a 13 and a...
