    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,...

    I realize it's not "king" or even "queen" sized, but if you have not checked out the Enlightened Equipment Accomplice, maybe just take a look. My wife and I have used one very successfully for 3...

    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...

    That could easily be the place, looks kind of familiar.... Again, fuzzy memory, but there was a lot of fresh dead fall around, that may have contributed to my error, there might have been a downed...

    Wise folks reliant on cell phones for navigation when hiking in critical areas carry a backup device. Not claiming I'm particularly wise, but I do carry a backup to my cell phone for navigation.... ...

    Glad you had a fine hike SS ! Wow, that looks like a strong pooch... Did you used to have a smaller dog, like a Jack Russell or something? If you get his paws toughened up, he'll easily be able to...

    Aha! Peace. I hereby withdraw my heinous accusation of teching-it on the trail. HYOH, of course.

    Being a year ago, I don't remember all details (like the gap name), except that you did not look...

    Hah! Nothing wrong with that, assuming he's single, after 21 days in the woods. He was certainly completely engrossed in his device, whatever it was.

    I think GPS devices (phones, whatever)...

    Forget about the cell phone thing, I am obviously mistaken on my gap names, seems like if you were sitting waiting for a shuttle along the skyway, then it WAS indeed you. I was getting a ride into...

    YET, when I approached you last year, right about this time on the BMT (actually, November 5th to be exact), at Beech Gap (I think, next road crossing after Mud Gap), I tried to say hello and...

    Thank you!!!!! Won't make any difference though... Anti-tech or anti-anything-modern farts will keep finding ways to "brag" about their ways. I actually find it amusing.

    I personally don't see any significant self-righteousness in this thread... sure WB is "free", as it is offered for "free", but don't forget, we do look at advertisements, like with most "free"...

    tough call, but I'm not too strict on my own ethics, nor do I give anyone grief on theirs. I do have a guide book published, for example, and couldn't care less if folks copy pages. A good friend,...

    me too, exactly, finished early October, fantastic time of year for a spectacular trail, truly one of our gems.

    If I understand correctly, Gambit is referring to posting paid-for info on social media. In the case of a physical map, for example, if you bought a map, would it be OK to scan the map then post it...

    I find the practice of sharing limited, piece-meal amounts of information from various paid-for sources acceptable, either by word of mouth or by posting on social media.

    I'd go Damascus north for 150 or so. My second choice would be Waynesboro south for 150.

    My least favorite part of the state, from a pure aesthetics standpoint, is Waynesboro north, including...

    Yeah, who knows, your body, your guess is as good as anyone's.

    Yep, the ACA is really handy for thru hikers, kind of tailor made for a given year with a lower income.
