The Approach Trail by Justin Lichter (Trauma) | via Section Hiker

Section Hiker is an excellent source for backpacking information for both experienced and beginner hikers.  I subscribe via Twitter feeds, and generally read the whole content.

Today and tomorrow I am going to post two blog entries about selecting  gear for backpacking.

Today’s entry is especially good- written by Trauma, who has hiked and written extensively about hiking since his initial steps on the AT with a grossly overloaded pack.

Check out this entry from his first day on the Appalachian Trail, from way back when:

About tjamrog

I'm sixty-seven and live in the Maine woods. I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2007, the Pacific Crest Trail in 2010, Vermont's Long Trail in 2011, and the Continental Divide Trail in 2013 . I am outdoors every day. I offer guided backpacking trips and classes in Maine, through "Uncle Tom's Guided Adventures".
