    Muir was the man! We owe a lot to him. It was a bit bewildering to see a small group of voices attempting to cancel him last year, because he, like most of our (and their) great great grandfathers,...

    I'm not familiar with ER71's AT vlog so I'm not sure if what I'm recommending is similar. But I tend to dislike the channels where somebody walks with one arm out talking into the camera the entire...

    The best one-man slack pack option I ever heard about was the guy who carried a motorcycle on a trailer behind his vehicle. Drop A at end, drive B to the start. Hike, hop in A, drive back to B,...

    Great conversation and ideas guys! Looks like placing a pan within a pan of boiling water is the way to go. Can't wait to give some of these a try. I don't mind the extra carry for shorter trips. ...

    I agree with JNI64...this is the best hiking forum I've ever been a part of. Amazing it's still going strong with all the social media around to take away members. Facebook killed a couple fishing...

    @CalebJ those AT Facebook Groups are awful. The main one and the section hiker one are run by the same folks. You are absolutely right that the moderators are extremely heavy handed over there and...

    I see a bunch of these different breakfast and dessert items in a cup, just add water and microwave one minute. They are individually packaged, very lightweight, and apparently taste good. Just...

    That stretch of blowdowns on top of the ridge N of Chestnut Knob/Walkers Gap extended for about 6 miles and was the slowest hiking I'd ever done. 1 mph and legs scratched to hell. I'm also praying...

    I think a lot of folks have this grand vision of the Appalachian "wilderness", and being prepared for it. Not taking anything away from the experience as it's special in its own right, but it's not...

    I agree. I looked at the list and it was all carb/sugar type foods. Horrible way to eat on the trail imo.

    Facebook could work and you could only accept friend requests from folks you want to share your hike with. I think Instagram is like a giant photo album of sorts, but doesn't allow much commentary...

    Bland VA Parking Near Brushy Mtn Outpost

    I'm thinking of ending a section here. AWOL guide doesn't list Hwy 52/Bland/Bastian/Brushy Mtn (591.8) as having a parking area. But I vaguely remember seeing some cars parked near here a couple...

    Looks like a blood bath!

    I got off the Opsak train really quick when I first started backpacking. For one, their durability is horrendous. They kept breaking at the zip lock. I remember being...

    Never a dull moment for me. Hiking, like lots of other endeavors, is not for everyone. It's why I can sit quietly on a boat for 12 hours fishing but the thought of doing it even for one hour makes...

    Just camp at the last campsite prior to Jarrad Gap (Lance Creek?), then hike into Neels the next day. It's a big campsite and can accommodate all the hikers with the same idea!

    @LittleRock why not park your car at the end and get a shuttle to the beginning of your hike? Takes all that worry of making the arranged rendezvous off your shoulders.
