    I always found the Guthook comments of little use most times. Comments about water can be dated and I question whether the person commenting really has good information. Just on this forum a few...

    I had the same problem finding a pair of good running shorts with a few pockets. I found these on Amazon. Plenty of pockets, no zippers (Velcro instead), a 6" inseam, which I liked better than 7"...

    Not that this floating "tent" qualifies as one, but sailors having been using inflatable life rafts for decades to escape a sinking boat. I owned one back in my sailboat delivery days and would...

    I hike alone, too. It's nice not having to worry about keeping up with someone, which I'm hard pressed to do since I'm slow. And yes, I'm concerned about falling and hurting myself to the point of...

    I've had this exact thing happen to me with a Zpack. The problem I discovered is, although I could find no leak in the bladder when it was removed from the backpack, it was leaking (probably through...

    Yikes! If I lived there, I wouldn't be out on that beautiful deck without some kind of protection. The cats had to see the man filming, which makes me wonder if they have no fear of man.

    I did Wind Gap to Lehigh Gap a few years ago. That was a solid 20 miles. You won't be going as far, but I can tell you the part you will be on is nothing but rocks. There are not any large...
