    So don't get another tent. First of all, that half dome is most certainly a backpacking tent. In fact, ALL of REI's 2-person tents are legit backpacking tents. What is true, though, is that REI...

    Would that not be common for any trail that has shelters? My guess is that the cables came after the shelters were built and had become a necessity for the very reason you describe... but I fail...

    Yes, acceptable to use the dead/downed wood, but most sites are so well used that there isn't much left of that. And what happens is the noobs come in expecting to use that wood and can't find any,...

    Exactly correct. But I think we should drop the stealth as it infers going off trail to create a site.

    Most of the sites listed are those that have water, so my assumption is that you're...

    This is what I love about the Salomon lacing, I can leave real loose and as you say, use as slip-ons without having to worry about dangling laces to trip over on midnight excursions.

    Ughh, I hate people that do that. I could blindfold myself and likely get pretty close to being in the lines, its just not that hard. And why would I want to potentially make myself a target of...

    Its costing me $175 to stay at a motel off the highway outside of Daytona. With that in mind, the huts seem like a damn fine value.

    I assume this argument has a major east coast / west coast divide. I can't fault folks for sleeping with their food in the east, but it isn't without risk.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe that's a bear heavy section? In general, plan to hang your own bag (don't rely on cables at shelters) or take a bear cannister. However, you'll...
