I'm often amazed how many people try to cross the grade while the lights are flashing. I see it every day on my ride home from work in Norristown. I once even seen a school bus in Iowa crossing the tracks while the train I was riding on was between the whistle post and the crossing.

Thanks for sharing your hike. I recently bought the Kindle version of your book and plan to read it before my thru hike in 24 days, 2 hours and 3 minutes. Once again, thanks; you and Rob both have me even more excited for this trip!!

Thanks for the tour! I miss my Beetle. I had a 74 super beetle (had two of them actually) I wish I had kept the second one (the first was totaled after I was T-boned by someone who tried to pass me on the shoulder but instead bounced off a guiderail and into me). The second one just couldn't cut it as a daily driver anymore, too much rust and mechanical problems that I couldn't keep up with. But man I miss that car, I learned to drive a stick in it and would love to get another again (would like a 71, 67 or 63)

Nice, I came across your website when doing research for my LHHT thru hike that I'm planning for this May. Your book is already in my sample queue on my Kindle and from what I've read so far of it, it is very likely for me to click the purchase button. Can't wait for my trip, everything I have read and seen just gets me more and more excited!

Thanks! I'm sure you'll have a blast in May! Drop me a note when you're done to let me know how things went. I hope to be snowshoeing on it this weekend and will upload a video when I'm done!

The REI quarter dome is my tent of choice and has given me five years so far with zero problems.

Thanks for sharing your hike. I recently bought the Kindle version of Dane's book and plan to read it before my thru hike in 24 days, 2 hours and 31 minutes. I plan to film the experience with my Sony Action Cam and put it up on YouTube if I don't die on the second day (18.4 miles). Once again, thanks; you and Dane both have me even more excited for this trip!!

That looks good, I'll have to try adding the cornbread the next time I make chili in my dutch oven.

+Vincent LoGreco Always great to have comments from another dutch oven user - thank you! Camping is so much more fun with one isn't it.

Although I have been doing research into making my own meals while backpacking to save some moolah, but I will still have some Mountain House meals with me too, especially for breakfast. I love their eggs. My favorite meal from them though has to be the Chicken Breast and Mashed Potatoes. You can never imagine that it is freeze dried.

I have the one person version of this and have to say it is awesome (you can see my tent in action on my numerous bike trips on my flickr page: https://www.flickr.com/photos/blueberryarts/sets ) I have been using it since 2009 and it hasn't failed me yet. I can attest to it being good in high winds (from a sudden thunderstorm on the C&O) and heavy rain. Liked your review, very detailed. Keep up the good work man!
