    I have an idea. Forget the pleas of listening to your social conscience. There is an easier way to clear out the trails. Everyone pick a section, put on some makeup that makes you look really sick...

    Gee, I had to look twice to be sure I was on Whiteblaze. This sounds just like the Facebook group PCT Class of 2020. That group devolved into a name calling, verbal fight to the point that most...

    Cried about my PCT permit day arriving in two week with the full knowledge that I ain't going anywhere. Drew up new plans to go to Maine in late June to finish the last 265 miles of the AT. Then...

    Yeah, I think hiking right now is pretty much out of the picture. I'm keeping my flight and permit day, but it is unlikely I will go. My new plan is to head to Maine at the end of June and finish...

    Thanks. I was actually in contact with Ashley and she was going to take me and one other hiker to Campo. Then, yesterday, California's governor put the state in lock down and Ashley has stopped...

    As Sasquatch mentioned, I'm concerned about a full bus. I have heard from other hikers that it is often full. Anyway, I did check them out months ago and do have the schedule.

    I did make a...
  7. Scout and Frodo Canceled PCT Hiker Hosting for the Year

    For those who might not know, Scout and Frodo have hosted PCT hikers at their home in San Diego (no charge) for years. They feed the hikers, give them a place to stay and drive them to Campo to...

    You're lucky. There are no REI stores in west central Florida where I live. The closest one is in the Orlando area, which is 100 miles away. That's about a two to three hour drive, because I would...

    I'm trying to stay with something with which I'm familar. I've been eating MH freeze dried meals since my days as a sailboat delivery skipper, which began almost 30 years ago. However at this...
  10. Freeze Dried Foods Out Everywhere = Coronavirus Panic

    So, I'm getting ready to head out to the PCT in five weeks for a LASH. As I do every year, I get on Amazon to order Mountain House freeze dried meals. Surprise! They don't even list most of the MH...

    The Boots Off Hostel is a nice place to stay in an area where a shelter has been closed for some time due to bear activity. It's around mile 428.

    Major dump at least when i stayed there in 2016. They also had significant management issues, which I understand are still present, but I have no first hand knowledge of recent goings on there at...

    I've stayed at Woodchuck Hostel twice. I thought it was clean and well run; although I agree with peakbagger on one point. If you are sleeping upstairs, you don't want a fire to hit, because you...

    I don't know of any smart phone GPS app that requires a cell phone connection. GPS Status doesn't require it, and I have had GPS Essentials on my phone and it did not require it. How do I know? ...

    Fire on the trail at Delaware Water Gap

    I don't think the fire is directly on the AT, but it is probably close. Anyway, the article made no mention of the AT.

    Yeah, I knew about it, but our plans were to spend a night in a motel. We could never have anticipated what we would encounter after paying for the room. Also, considering the situation (the last...

    I've stayed at the Relax Inn in Atkins, VA (twice) and spent an afternoon at Uncle Johnny's when he was alive (and on the porch). I've talked to hikers who stayed at the Budget inn in Hiawasee and...

    Maybe I missed it as I'm thinking someone must have mentioned this. There are many free GPS applications out there. I've had as many as three at one time on my phone. Currently, I have GPS Status....

    Ursacks are not odor proof unless you purchase and use the Opsak within the Ursak. So, even if you have an Ursak in the Smokies, you still have to hang it. The main issue is attracting bears...

    Wow! I didn't know that. In Florida where I live, a couple of years ago they held a bear hunt. As I recall the limit was 300-something bears. The hunters killed over three hundred in the first...
  22. Another Article About Bear Canisters and Their Future on the AT

    A few months ago, I posted about about an article in the ATC's magazine "Journeys" that talked about the coming of bear canisters to the AT. Now the Trek has posted an article here that goes into...

    The few times I wore rain pants I became hypothermic. It was cold outside and raining, which is often the case. The cold/wet fabric against my legs just increased my discomfort. The rain jacket...
