    Look up the Fancy Feast Stove. It costs practically nothing, especially if you have a cat. Alcohol just requires lots of patience.

    Self service is the way to go. You get access to their full kitchen equipment so you can be very creative with your meals. Think stuff like making nachos in the oven with melted cheddar and...

    I was there the Sunday after Trail Days. We read the shelter log and heard about the bears. We hung our food high in the tree. The other guy got his bag stolen, but they didn't get mine. It was a...

    Just don't take it out and they probably won't know that it even comes out. As far as the trekking poles go, no baskets (they look like ski poles with baskets) and put a rubber tip on it (which you...

    I fall into the category of the people that hate it. It just can't support much of a load. I returned it and swapped for a Gregory z65, little more weight but much more comfortable.

    I try to look at other comparable places as a starting point and then go on business ethics. I will pay the Blueberry Patch a lot more than someone who is just trying to skirt the law.

    Sandwiches (yes I carry bread, not tortillas) with cheese and summer sausage. Country ham is good too (people will hate you, or its is a good way to make friends if you share). I like to roast some...

    Katahdin will destroy your legs. The ~10 miles downhill out of the park the next day will feel like the longest day ever. I like to stop at Abol Campground for the night and get some rest and hot...

    One person carries a 1-1.5 liter pot and the other carries a small titanium bowl. I like to have the second person with metal instead of plastic so if god forbid we get split up then they can build...

    If she can't start with you then she needs to stay home. Her meeting you in the middle has bad idea written all over it.

    My favorite snack is just kashi go lean cereal mixed with peanut brittle. I call it sweet feed. You put a ziplock of that in your pants cargo pocket and just dip your hand in every so often.

    Make sure you are using a 2 amp charger. Most of the ones that come stock with phones are 1 amp, but they can handle 2 amps. If you are staying the night somewhere this doesn't much matter, but if...

    Aim for a regular thru first, the odds are well against you just for that. Once you know you can do that then start planning your yo-yo.

    I usually run 5K every weekday, then cross train on my bike on Saturday or Sunday. If I lived near the mountains I would hike instead of bike, but I live on the coast. Running sucks but it is worth...

    Pierce Pond lean-to just south of the Kennebeck in Maine is a very relaxing place with an awesome view of the pond. It is nothing to speak of architecturally, but you can't beat the location.

    Go up to Mountain Crossings at Neel's Gap. It is one of the best outfitters out there. The AT even goes through the building. Make a trip of it and hike up Blood Mountain while you are there.

    500 mL box wine. It really makes dinner feel civilized instead of just eating out of a pot in the middle of the woods.

    I had one but returned it. I couldn't get the hipbelt to connect with my back to transfer the load so it was all on the tension of the belt. It would probably work well with a 20 pound load, but...
