    Interesting.

    Quite a bit of media coverage meanwhile on the new unsupported Adirondack 46 record. Seems pretty solid.

    I was on the move and was just as happy to keep on moving. LOL. Definitely not that big though. Cool pic.

    I have generally found that the friendliness/perceived friendliness of other hikers is directly proportional to both how deep you are in the backcountry and how busy the trail is.
