    I have the 2400 in black. So far so good. I’m packing essentially my 3-season kit and 2 days of food. There seems to be room for a warmer quilt and heavier puffy. Total weight so far with food and...

    Just home after a 131-mile section from Pinkham Notch to Maine route 27. I gave myself two weeks, which was a luxurious amount of time. I had a few long days but was able to hike at a comfortable...

    Congratulations. Still working on mine. Started 2016. Will be done next year.

    Good idea. You won't have as much daylight as I did in June but flexibility in the Whites is a virtue.

    I was wearing a bandana, sunglasses, head net, and picardin. Treated all my clothes with permethrin. Still got bitten badly. I heard them laughing at me.

    In response to another post, I started...

    NH Section Trip Report

    The original plan was to hike from Hanover to Gorham over two weeks. Weather and illness conspired to shorten the section to end at Pinkham Notch instead of Rattle River--122 miles instead of 143. ...

    I'll be there too June 15-28/29 nobo. Good luck on your hike.
  11. Advice on shelter choices in the Whites in June

    I am primarily a hammock camper and had been planning to take my hammock on my upcoming section hike from Hanover to Gorham. I've been advised by hikers who have done this section that a hammock is...

    I have the black 13-liter in xpac. 2.9 oz. on my food scale. I'm very happy with it. It's a one-man operation but the quality is very good. The bags have a reflective strip as well, which makes them...

    I've started using the food bag from st. Elmo's Fire Quilts. See the link below. It's light, water resistant, opens like a pod, has a sturdy loop, and comes with a bear hanging kit.

    Sorry I'm seeing this too late to offer my two cents. I parked in the FS lot twice with no issues. I used Laughing Heart for a shuttle--Kate shuttled me twice with no issues.

    Not sure why but when I started section hiking the AT in 2016 I encountered many more friendly hikers--thru, section, and day--than now. Same in 2017 but for some reason last year I began having...

    Just bought a pair. I've been hiking in Altra Lone Peaks for the past two years but have been having AT and calf issues. Hoping these will work out. Will update next week.

    Brings back memories of last November. Ron drove me then as well--not the most punctual shuttle driver but certainly entertaining. My last weekend south was November 10-11 from Hogpen Gap to...

    As the OP not sure how we got to this point, but I find it interesting. For whatever it's worth, which is probably very little, I have not slackpacked, yellow-blazed, or even blue-blazed on bad...

    Thanks. This was helpful. I'm beginning to sharpen my plan. I recognize starting in Hanover as a section hiker will be challenging. Although I have over 2,000 AT miles under my belt, I won't have...

    I've used the multi-pack. Not waterproof. I used all four straps because I found it slapped around too much with just two--particularly on uphills. I gave it up because I got tired of all the...
  21. Re-supply for section hike through the Whites

    No problem. Your email seemed to be more optimistic for a section hike and less so for training hikes but I totally understand. Good luck.

    If it makes you feel any better I have only NH and Maine to do and wanted to get done before my 60th birthday, which is March 4th. Despite doing section and weekend hikes in furious fashion down to...

    Doing winter training hikes every other week. But you’re right—either way isn’t easy.
