Though WhiteBlaze.net

A hat. Fleece or wool. My head always gets cold at night.

When was the last time you went backpacking? Where did you go? How many nights were you on the trail?

Ultimate? I'll start with the full thru of the AT, in one shot. Maybe when I retire.

Yes

Do you know how to read a topographic map? Do you own and know how to use a compass? Do you own and know how to use a GPS?

No answer yet

Introduction

I'm a runner who got (re)hooked on trails after a few ultras in the mountains. I'm re-learning the backpacking thing after a long hiatus. I use to hike a lot as a kid.
