    Exactly.

    And losing 60 ish lbs didn’t result in being able to carry much more weight either...maybe 3-5 more pounds. It just made it easier to climb up hills with a pack.

    No one can predict who will have a successful thru hike. We think we know what’s best and what it takes to succeed but we are wrong. We are arrogant.
