    If the chafing is between his thighs, then almost any wicking boxer brief will work for this purpose, the longer the leg the better. Keep in mind that these garments come with and without the......

    Peppermint Bronner's can be a used as toothpaste also, though it only takes about a drop to do the job. Any more than that and it taste like soap!

    You make a good point about the carry on and it would be good to check to see if your pack fits their criteria. Frontier's current policy is "All passengers are allowed one free personal item that...

    My actual airfare was only $39.20 the rest is fees and taxes. Either way, getting to Atlanta in 1.5 hours is preferable to the alternative of driving.

    My date is set in stone due to other commitments. For a Friday flight, I don't think I overpaid and Frontier has a good rep... at least with me.

    Not sure if your still planning, but I thought I would throw out some options and ideas.

    Spare liner socks for temps above 30 deg F for me, otherwise any of the mitten suggestions above will do. I would not recommend leather mittens unless you're only using them to chop wood!

    Approach trail? Nah. Done that and don’t see any value at this point in my hiking career.
    This will likely be my last thru-hike (at least for the AT) and I plan...
