    The two big initial questions are
    1) When do you want to start?
    and
    2) How long do you have to do the hike?

    When you start will determine what kind of gear you need.
    Earlier start means more...

    Took a stroll over to the Appalachia parking lot. Some 15 cars in the lot, nearly all from out of state. Maine, Vermont, Connecticut, North Carolina, and of course most were from Mass. At least...

    That might be the case. And if little or no mantianace is done this year - removing blow downs, kicking sticks off the trail, cleaning water bars and the like, it could be quite the jungle too.

    Isn't it one of the last privately owned pieces (or maybe the only) of land in the SNP? Land locked by the park and easement land. $25,000 an acre isn't all that unreasonable considering the...

    I don't see how the "self quarantine" could possibly be enforced. It relies on people doing the right thing. While most probably will, there are those who won't.

    Next year.

    July is probably the earliest one should consider beginning. Could be a big SOBO crowd about then.

    Looks like I'll be shoveling 6" of snow off my driveway today, just in case I need to go somewhere :)

    At this point anyone who has been on the trail for a couple of weeks is probably better off staying on the trail then trying to go home.

    But anyone with long distance plans who hasn't yet gotten...

    And of course you were one of them, as was I. I believe short, passing encounters in the outdoors is very low risk.

    Since it's still winter where I live, I just leave my fleece gloves on when shopping. The virus doesn't survive long on fabric. It will survive a long time on plastic, so plastic gloves could be...
