    I picked up a a 4000mAh portable charger for $18 that I figured might be worth using while hiking. At the retail price point (~$70), it was never worth the idea of "testing out", but for that much...

    First off, good call on holding off on the AT for the sake of education and career. I hope you aren't holding it against yourself that you didn't do the AT in '01. A lot of people here would tell you...

    It's news to me, as well. Granted I was through in 3 days this spring, the idea of a hard limit is kinda odd to me. And not something I'd heard before.

    If thru-hikers have to pay, I sure hope that eliminates the dayhiker priority in shelters. That's bollocks if you ask me.

    When I was doing my thru this past summer, I definitely came across a lot of solo female hikers. It's not an uncommon thing.

    Starting in Damascus would probably be a great idea, as Lone Wolf...

    I started in Amicalola on April 24 and the only nights I hit that were freezing or below were when I was going through the Smokies (5/8-5/10). I had a Western Mountaineering SummerLite (32F) and it...

    On my NOBO trip, I did Fontana Dam to Derrick Knob shelter, then to Mt. Collins, then to Tri-Corner, then hit the I-40 underpass to crash at a friend's cabin nearby. It's a pretty similar itinerary...

    I use a GoLite Jam 50L, and it's about perfect for 3-7 days between resupplies (which means it'd cut it for that long of a hike, obviously). You're in the right capacity range, so go with what's...

    Make sure you bring the cable box for the TV, as they switched to the digital signal. It'd be a shame to only get CBS after bringing it to a shelter!

    If you're ok with, say, only making it to like NY or so by then, then you can try it. It'd be a difficult try though. It's less than 4 months, and the first month will be potentially through snow and...

    Put duct tape on the outside of the bladder so you can't see the mouse poo floating in there. If you can't see it, it isn't a problem, right?

    Both of these are excellent points.

    For the record, I used two poles. The option of having the points of contact was much appreciated. And if you get a pair with straps, make sure you're using...

    I use an aluminum bottle stove with sideburner jets, so the stove itself can act as the pot stand. I honestly used whatever I could get access too while hiking. Mostly it was denatured alcohol by the...

    I started 4/24 and made it to Erwin by the Thursday before Trail Days (5/17?), before having to hitch home for job stuff. Stuff has been a bit... difficult... adjusting back afterwards...

    I took a WM SummerLite (32F) with me on my April start. I hit freezing temps through the Smokies, but with layers in the bag I was still ok. I am a bit of a warm sleeper, though.

    The trail crosses NY/CT a few times, the first time around 400' or so, by Gaylordsville, and the main cross into CT, by Kent, is around 1200'. The border with MA is when you're down from Bear, and...

    What day is this? Based on the EMS website, my best guess would be this Sunday, June 3, 10am-4pm but I just wanted to make sure.

    I might make the trip down to check it out, or I may...

    When I hike around Bear Mountain, I usually end up taking the Lion's Head trailhead, which is up Bunker Hill Road in Salisbury. It will hit the AT a little bit further up than the 41 crossing in town.
