    Anecdotally, treating socks and shorts will improve your chances a lot (I haven't bothered with deet). While wearing shorts that have been treated, along with socks and shirt, I have not found a...

    Lasagna is among the best tasting MH. But for the reason you state, I stopped taking them on hikes. It is far too hard to clean just the spoon.

    Butane Mix Cooking in Hotels

    I find myself in a hotel wanting to cook with my hiking stove (Butane Mix).

    Hmm. I'd have to ask someone else. Are you suggesting that would be a good place to end, or a bad place? Seems like we'd have to use a cable car to start or end a trip there.

    Wow! Lot's of good information to process. The group size of 5 is really a maximum likely scenario. I'll be working on NH for a few years, and may not even start this year.

    Filtered water often tastes better than unfiltered. Safe or not, I prefer to have the option to filter.

    Totally true. Those that say that the AT is far safer than a big city are generally not good at comparing things. I would concede that if you spend 10 minutes day-hiking on the AT, you are less...

    The fact that I'm alive to write this suggests they're okay to eat a day or so after opening when hiking in June.

    Yes, I went back to the old thread. We were in the same discussion back then. Obviously there are many section hikers that will never read this. But I find that few section hikers really finish...

    I'm sure if you go straight up, the air gets cooler. But mountain terrain that is at a higher elevation is not straight up and very complex. At times, cool air can be trapped in valleys and warmer...
