    Given the Mods wisdom in exorcising that from the forum, I can pretty much overlook any small oversteps on other things.

    If you met someone on the trail who wanted to learn about thru hiking, would you refer them to Whiteblaze, or one of Dixies videos on YouTube?

    The Dungeon

    Do hikers still stay in the Dungeon?

    Is it even open?

    I have not heard mention of it in a long time, but it used to be a fairly common experience.
