    That's unfortunate. I'm sorry to hear you had to bail. Did you have an estimate on how much it would have cost to hike the QC portion?

    The Stowe area is really great. For hiking you can hit up Mansfield and Camel's Hump. Both are beautiful mountains.

    Sweater is +30/-20 and the jacket is +25/-25. I use the sweater and it is much warmer than I thought it would be. I can go out in a t-shirt and the down sweater into temperatures well below...

    The Oconee side, as the above poster above said, is quite a bit easier than the Table Rock side. If you are looking for a 30 mile hike then I'd find a road crossing that is approximately 30 miles...

    If were speaking officially, or better, technically, then I'm under the impression that Grafton Notch that sits between Old Speck and Baldpate is the official end of the White Mountains. Thus the...

    I'll be honest, I like the old one better. Before, I could just glance at the screen and see all the camping sites at a particular location at one time. But now I have to scroll, and scroll, and...

    I agree with the Sugarloaf Campgrounds recommendation above. There are two and they are fairly small (in a nice way) and in the middle of your hikes.

    I'll just note that I was recently on the Caribou Valley Road and it's in pretty rough shape. One can get in about 2 miles or so (rough estimate) but I believe it's around 4 or 5 miles to get to the...

    I think October would be doable (most likely) but September 8 to 10 would be considerably better. Do those dates include your travel dates (presuming from TN)?

    Buy once cry once.

    I bought a lot of gear and ended up replacing quite a lot of it over the next year or two. I went for smaller lighter less volume items. I wish I would have just sprung for...

    Well it'll be doable in the summer but there aren't really any high elevations. Pinnacle and Sassafras are high but not really high enough to get noticeably cooler temperatures. Plus you aren't on...

    Shaw's will pick you up right at Katahdin Stream Campground (which is where the Katahdin hike would end) for a modest cost. Actually what we did was park our car at Shaw's, they drove us to the...

    So much fun. I'll just throw out a few tidbits.

    If you include Katahdin (and hopefully you will) it's 120 miles. If you stop at Abol Bridge then it's 100 miles. Shaw's in Monson will meet you...

    Enlightened Equipment has a synthetic line. They are heavier than their down counterparts but quite a bit lighter than a sleeping bag still.

    Have you gone backpacking with it? How does it feel after many miles / days? Thanks for the reply. I assume it's not a common issue since I couldn't find one single thread about this anywhere.

    Pack fit and the coccyx

    I'm trying out a new pack, the ULA Circuit. The hip belt is at the lowest position (so that the bottom of the belt is on about the same level as the bottom of the pack).

    Thanks for the responses. I suppose I'm just a bit nervous about purchasing a quilt. Can't really try them out before you buy. They seem to resell pretty well though. Thanks again!

    Thank you for your reply. I think I will definitely pull the trigger on an EE or another brand. It seems most people rave about quilts. Thanks for taking the time to reply.
