Hiked 18,000 miles on the Appalachian Trail. PCT 98', Long Trail 99'. Longest day was a 45 miler on the AT. Coldest night, well, my AT thru hikes were from September to May, so I hiked thru 6 full winters, and most of a 7th. It was cold.
Just got back yesterday from hiking the North District of SNP on the AT. Can't believe it was 30 degrees up there friday night, it's almost June!
Black Diamond Mega-lite tarp or a VAUDE Power Tokee UL tent. My pack is a ULA Catalyst. Winter:Gregory Baltoro 65. Bag: Western Mountaineering Mega-lite, and WM Kodiak in winter.
I joined mainly to hike. I think my pack base weight is "okay". Improving my pace would be great.
Searched within the site itself and found you.
My name is Chris. I've hiked the entire 2,185 mile Appalachian Trail 7 times. Crazy I know. These days I enjoy hiking sections, and weekends. Though I can't rule out another thru hike, someday...
