    Furthering the hijacking.... Just making sure.... you do realize that there are NO grizzlys in Colorado, right? Furthermore, I've been hiking and backpacking in CO for 40 years now, and have seen...

    Just as another data point, I do a lot of hiking that involves scrambling and I sure like my half-finger gloves for those sections (and also on very technical climbs, up to about 5.7 or so, beyond...

    I don't disagree with you for the most part, I think we share similar styles, but this does enter into the realm of HYOH.... a significant percentage of PCT thru-attempt folks are mostly on the...

    Sorry, that first part simply is NOT true. The PCTA does great things, and I do subscribe to their philosophies, but by the letter of the law, you do NOT NEED A PERMIT for those first 700 miles. ...

    Yep, agree with lone hiker, Scout and Frodo's services will be dearly missed, but the rest, though handy, shouldn't affect too much.

    Yeah, not only is there a PO in Warner Springs, there is also...

    Thanks guys.... I have Jupiter's site up now, a lollipop that includes the Ocean to lake plus a stroll around lake Okeechobee might be cool. Again, thanks.
  8. Thinking about a section of the FL trail soon....

    ... either in mid-December or mid January.

    I would like to do about a 2-week+ section, starting at western terminus, Ft. Pickens, and hiking as far as I can to the east.

    2 questions:

    Is this...

    Having hiked thru the NOC on two occasions, my take is the opposite.... It was a very good stop and refresh both times, all the services a hiker needs, reasonable cost, good food at the river...

    Yeah, the queue took over an hour to drop 1000, then it accelerated, and the last 1000 took maybe 15 minutes, just like you said, lots of folks just didn't like the available dates.

    If you're not...

    I was 4688 ! But still got permit, about 2 hour wait. WAY too early (March 11), but what the heck. I did March 29 start in 2018 and got over early snow no problem. I'll be ready to pause a week or...

    Because my wife always carries Vicodin on our hikes and climbs, I was able to walk out of a nasty situation where I broke a couple of ribs. We were near 14,000 feet on Pikes Peak in December, 4pm,...

    Yep, all good points. Nothing like crawling into a REALLY puffy, warm bag on a cold evening!

    And yeah, I think there have been multiple threads on this subject, but I cannot remember details.

    I have zero experience using a hammock, but for tent/bag camping, I have used a "hot water bottle" thing many, many times in my winter and high altitude climbs to great success.

    I like the idea...
