Re: Help me get some gear links for a thru hike?

http://hikinghq.net/2index.html It's very hard to accept the idea that "less is more", but when it's on your back you get the idea pretty quick. My personal set up is a hammock and tarp. tarp from guide gear and I made the hammock ( 4 yds of fabric, doubled over and hemmed) I also made my backpack. ...

Re: Preserving Eggs (Food)

I have read many times, that eggs do not need refrigeration. Check transatlantic sailing reports. Many coat in wax or lard and store that way for a month or more. I've forgotten the details.

Re: stayhigh's journal

I'm thinking about that hike. Did you make hotel reservations ahead or walk in each night?? The latter would be convenient if you didn't end up on the street often.

Re: How to Learn Spanish Quickly?

There is no easy fast way to learn a language. It depends on your memory. In the early stages, you hear or think of a statement/word in your own language and then translate to the new language. Much much much later, you can hear and understand words in the new language as meaningful. Over time, and ...

Re: Intermittent Fasting on 500 mile Hikes

I wouldn't. I have hiked a month for the last 8 years. I don't fast at all (although, I probably east less because refrigerator snacks are out of reach and weight is EVIL). I lose around 15 to 20 pounds. That leaves me gaunt at the end.
gaunt is not healthy.

Re: My partner earns far more than me but wants me to pay a half share

there are many "ways to get along". Unfortunately, when the echos of the wedding vows, hugs and kisses etc fade into pleasant memories, the ugly side of a long term relationship begins. The unspoken brokering of sexual privilege for agreement to something (like a new couch) rears it's ugly head (at ...

Re: My partner earns far more than me but wants me to pay a half share

Geez O Pete. Half and half is the typical sharing of expenses rule. When I had room mates, how much each earned never was considered .If you think your booty is part compensation, then we already know what you are and you are just haggling over price. Get a grip and leave or start negotiating, Were ...
