    I thought it was you who posted this on FB ! How many Illabelle hikers can there be? This guy looks like he could (or has) toughed out anything the trail gives him!

    Actually, on a different forum, I was told that if I couldn’t pay attention then I had no business being on the trail. Not everyone plays nice. But to those who have offered encouragement and support...

    I imagine instinct and an acute sense of smell play into this. Like taking a dog for a walk and they stop and pee every 50 yards....they'll never get lost or not be able to find their way home.

    Or on the AT near Killington VT....not even the PD, the S&R, or 911 can "ping" your location. GPS is completely unavailable. It may well be the only spot on the entire AT completely unlocatable,...

    It's the reference to the Hansel and Gretel tale, because getting lost in the woods is scary.

    The clips are from bread bags, so there's also a little play on words there.

    I learned the hard way that GPS on a phone or ANY device is not always reliable. Some areas of the AT (I know of one specifically) do not register on GPS, or Guthook, or the Killington Police Dept's...

    Repairing a sleeping bag with tears
