    I used to have thru-hiker envy, but any more, I find it more interesting to talk to section hikers because there's more of a variety of stories on how it gets done. My longest section of 6 was 126...

    Congrats. Sectioning is no simple task. I'm 15% done in 3 years and it should take me about 20 years total.

    You shouldn't get wet. I was there over the fourth of July after it had been not dry and didn't get wet. I'd be more concerned about the climb up Moody Mtn. Straight up!

    I had black diamonds that broke. I really like to put weight on my poles. I'm not opposed to new poles, but would rather try to use what I have since I like them better than collapsable poles.

    I am looking for any type of shelter that uses a trekking pole for setup, but the setup cant be dependent on the pole height. Any ideas? When I got into longer distance hiking, I wasnt sure if I...

    It was so nice to hike with you for a little while coming down off Old Speck! What an odd coincidence. I had many wacky things happen on my section outing.

    I hid a bear canister there. It was there for the resupply when I got there and was there when I went to get it on the way home. Worked like a charm!

    Now I'm thinking of leaving my own food drop hidden in a bear canister at Grafton Notch. Would this be absurd? I've heard of people making a resupply for themselves before, so I wouldn't think this...
