    There is now a real opportunity for someone to start a good hostel in Gorham. Hostels come and hostels go, but it would be nice to see something with the permanence of, say, Shaw's in Gorham.

    Apparently this year there is a group called "The Brits" which features two hikers from the UK and two hikers from the US. If you know about this, please tell me more!

    Good choice of start date. I used to start on April Fool's Day (April 1st) but after trial and error I found that it's a bit too early. April 15 is the perfect start date because it's the right...

    I tend to agree that zeros are overrated and have only recently become a thing. I never plan them. They are entirely circumstantial and I only do them if they are absolutely necessary due to weather,...

    Thanks for posting this; I'd never read it before and now I know how this works.

    I haven't, not because I wouldn't nominate him but because I'm unaware of what the nomination process is.
  8. Why is Baltimore Jack not in the Appalachian Trail Museum Hall of Fame?

    Bob Peoples is in the Hall of Fame, and rightly so. And lots of other worthies who are still with us.

    But Baltimore Jack is, alas, no longer with us but is at the very least equally worthy of...

    On the southern half of the trail, sometimes I get a bit lazy and I don't check the weather forecasts as often as I should. It's also because there are more hikers around who will tell you since the...

    Eggs are just about the perfect trail food because of the protein. But I prefer mine in omelette form which is hard to prepare in camp, and eggs don't pack well anyway, so usually I get my egg fix...

    That is good advice. Usually I send my winter clothes home in Pearisburg and they get sent back to me at Hanover. You should always carry your winter gear in the Whites. It's really rather risky to...

    It's totally legal to hitch in GSMNP; there is no prohibition against it by law or by park rules.

    Advice as to specific brands/models of shoe are pretty much pointless, since everyone has different sized and shaped feet and what works for one person won't for another. The only thing you can do is...

    Just an observation: no cellular service area or coverage map you see is accurate. (Anecdotal: in the 'other world' off the AT I am a network engineer). Why? Because there are no real standards, so...

    I second the Laphroiag. For me, it's got to be an Islay. My tastes have become more refined over the years.

    First place that came to mind is The Doyle. Sure, it's a dive, but as far as seedy bars/pubs go it's tops. It's hardly five-star accomodation, but it's a great place to flop when you're tired from...

    No, no, no. The old was was not fine. The old way was extremely broken. I can't even begin to tell you how antiquated and cluttered the whole site was. It is not 1998 on the web anymore!
