    The park isn't too bad except for the lack of water. However the 18 miles south of the park is a beast and is apply named "agony grind". Not recommended on a hot, muggy summer day.

    That looks as good a hike as any. Sounds like your just passing through and want to spend a night in the back country. Be sure to stop at all the tourist pull offs through the park while your there. ...

    The ATC may not have made up their mind yet about the festival or doing registrations. It will likely depend on how it goes this winter.

    It was a very long time ago that I spent a summer in Yellowstone. Back then it was hard to get a permit for a single person, they preferred a party of 4, but generally would be fine with 2. Grizzly...

    I was assured the mutt had all it's shots. They looked like a well off couple from Mass with an expensive dog from a breeder, I believed them.

    Or beg. I once watched cars for an hour come to an intersection, stop, turn onto the main road in the direction I wanted to go in and buzz right on by me. So, I finally had a moment of inspiration...

    The nice thing about food weight is that it steadily decreases as you go on and you probably don't have to carry a full liter of water, at least not all day. It doesn't make a lot of sense to go to...

    That's a pretty strenuous section of trail. With the short hours of daylight getting in the miles you expect might be difficult, but what do I know?

    Not carrying a full week's of food is nice,...

    There's a bar and grill about 100 yards off the trail at a road crossing. Forget exactly where though.

    Bear spray would not have helped in my situation this time, but other times it might have been handy to have. This of course was not nearly my first encounter with an unrulily dog.

    In July, it might not last too long. In the cool fall, no problem. That's pretty close to "refrigerate after opening". If you don't eat it all on the trip, then of course refrigerate it.

    You do know May is a bit early to start a SOBO? Even June can be a bit iffy. If you really want to start in May, do a modified flip flop. Trust me, you don't want to be in Maine in late May or early...
