Extra socks
Wear an extra sock on the smaller foot. My right foot is about a half-size smaller than the left. Ordinarily, I buy shoes to fit the larger foot and don't have problems. But occasionally I e...

M&M relo
I don't understand why they don't just reroute the M&M trail onto the Robert Frost Trail from Pratt's Corner Road to Ruggles Pond. That would replace a pretty dull M-M section with...

I'd love to see your updates if you put them online. I'm going to do a M-M thru-hike in October if work allows (I'll do it in 6-7 days, not 3!). I've done from the CT border to Mt...
