    Looks like Shutter's AT weather app for Android is still down.

    On the trail, radar is most useful. That will tell you when it's finally safe to get out of bed. If you know the rain will clear in...

    If I remember right, the AT crosses Log Cabin road at some point. The Shuttle driver will likely know where to drop you off.

    I carried a small (5x8) tarp for a while once. Used it like 2-3 times. Once for a lunch break in the rain, once to hunker under during a sudden heavy thunderstorm. It really wasn't big enough to...

    15 bucks for burger, fries and a shake? No way. Oh damn, I'll be back for seconds.

    Actually, last time I was down there the food seemed to be priced what you'd expect for a fast food joint. I...

    The usual scenario is a coastal rain storm moves through, pushed out by an artic cold front. Not uncommon for that time of year. That can result in a lot of heavy snow or ice depending on exactly how...

    Even after subtracting the fixed off trail expenses, 12K should be enough for a reasonably comfortable thru hike. The cost breakdown is suspect, but at this point it's just moving numbers around. Of...

    The Loft camp store might not open until late April, but I think the wayside (~1 mile away) is open. I made that trek to the wayside from Loft on the last two trips I did through there since the camp...

    In normal times, most of the waysides open in late March. Loft is listed as mid April. But these are not normal times so before relying on waysides, best confirm they will be open.

    Didn't they mostly use the rivers? Settlement next to the river, hunting grounds in the nearby forest. I believe there were some well defined paths which got turned into roads.

    It is highly unlikely any of those trees still exist today. Although the trees pictured look strange, natural forces can cause that kind of growth and those trees are likely less then 50 years old.
