    I’m sure it will eventually reopen. It’s a key piece of tourist infrastructure in HF for visitors who venture out to MD heights. Good thing no one was injured.

    My zPacks Hexamid Twin does have significant condensation issues when I close the doors, there's high humidity, and little wind. In such conditions, the humidity can get pretty bad and I have to be...

    It's just such a different experience and I try to embrace the differences. Overall, I must say that I prefer to end my day in my tent cooking my own meal to being in a lodge most of the time, but...

    I will say that they are both very nice tents. I might have to just spend some time with the Duplex. I'm set in my ways and know the Hexamid so well that any change is bound to be uncomfortable!

    I've got to say that the Duplex was great when hanging out inside for a few minutes after I got it set up. The sense of space in there is way greater than in the Hexamid Twin or any other shelter...

    I can fit 7 days of food in my 12" Bearikade plus one day outside of it for the first day, so 8 days is the longest I've ever gone. If I recall correctly, this was from Horseshoe Meadows to MTR back...

    I'm a longtime solo user of the zPacks Hexamid Twin which I love (and is still serviceable) but is seven years old, so I recently purchased a zPacks Duplex as a replacement. For some of my plans...

    That’s a great section and the waysides should be open by the time you’re going so you could pick up food and eat at the restaurant. The leaves aren’t yet on the trees so the views can be good. The...

    In my travels in France, Switzerland, Spain and a small part of Italy (just on the TMB) “wild camping” has seemed discouraged in most places and I rarely saw tents. What I’ve been told is that if you...
