    Great point. As a section hiker, our longest stretch was ten days, 170 miles from near Carlisle to Delaware Water Gap. Over 16 years, we had much interaction with thruhikers, both NOBO and SOBO. ...

    We stayed at Pocosin Cabin, really enjoyed it, it was cold and the stove/fireplace was nice. Good view down the valley. It's pretty popular due to its proximity to Skyline.

    Fall through Spring for me, I agree the longer nights make me restless and can seem even longer, but during our sections of the Ouachita Trail, we began to routinely get up, eat breakfast and get an...

    I guess paper could fail if it got wet, but it's more reliable than an electronic device. Some of the newer electronic offerings are really neat, so I may supplement, but I don't think I'd hike...

    My original 3/4 Thermarest is still going strong after roughly 35 years. It's never leaked or had any issues, but I put it aside for a full length three or four years ago, got tired of sore heels.

    I'm so sorry for your circumstances.

    I would add Max Patch to the vicinity of the Roan trip, you can drive to within I believe 0.9 miles of the summit. It is a climb, but then you have an open...

    I picked up several AT signs from Randy this week. The craftsmanship is great, and the barnwood and distressed painting makes them seem authentically trail worn. I had one in my back seat and...

    I'll probably do between 150 and 200, all of it on the Pinhoti, BMT or in the Sipsey Wilderness.

    Take Care,
