Re: Smokies/Nantahala area in October
We did the Springer to Newfound Gap last year around the first 2 weeks of October. 1) We saw a few hikers each day, but we also had shelters to ourselves on several nights. The Smokies were muc...

Not Anonymous
From what I saw, it wasn't Anonymous (the hacker collective) that did this--just some single guy who used "Anonymous" in his name. Obviously, that doesn't change anything for you...

PCT Thru Hike Clothing
I thru-hiked in 09. I had a Houdini and a rain jacket and would bring both again. Getting sweaty under your rain jacket sucks, and the Houdini is amazingly breathable--I wore mine all the time on...
