    I used the RR with a pad and it was thick enough so that when I turned on my side, my knees touched the rigid hem of the hammock where it narrows. I gave it up and went back to my gathered end.

    No reason you couldn't start Ga Nobo in April and flip to Sobo in July or early August. That's how I've been considering doing it so as to enjoy fall in NE at the last of the trip.

    To say that the subject is divisive is one thing, to say that this debate is divisive is a way of shutting down discussion. IMO discussion is always good, even if there is some collateral damage. ...

    Couldn't agree more regarding putting labels on folks. I think the ATC got it right making it a 2000-miler designation, irregardless of the "thru hike" specification. And regarding slack packing,...

    Note that his face doesn't grace the pics, so obviously not the next Tipi. LOL

    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...

    I doubt that it ever has. Only internet hikers.



    While I don't care for this logic, I would have to admit to feeling similar feelings if I was somehow comparing hikes with someone, like in a...

    Have to say that was my first thought as well. 15-20m per day? I can do that easily on flat terrain, but you need to know that the AT is anything but. There are some periods of ridgewalks, but the...

    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.

    I'd use a...

    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...
