@ThruHikingResearcher wrote: Hey all! I hiked the Colorado Trail in 2022 and was a crew leader for CTF last summer! I am currently a medical student, and I am spearheading a study investigating what happens to the metabolism of a thru-hiker. Are you doing the Colorado Trail this summer? Would you be potentially interested in learning more about the study and/or participating? While doing the CT myself, I noticed there wasn’t a lot of resources on how to address the metabolic and health needs of a thru-hiker. I am very excited to be shedding light on these needs this summer! As such, I invite ..read more

Here it is 9 years later and I just had surgery to correct the problem (April 8). My Neurosurgeon should have me released to drive before Trail Days so I’m planning on going down. If anyone living near Central Ohio or not to fall off the route between here and Damascus would like to ride down, let me know and we’ll make arrangements. It won’t cost you anything except your own food, snacks and drinks on the trip. Thanks Posts: 1 Participants ..read more

@Walkinghappy wrote: Hello first time poster here, how do you feel about sharing the trails with horse riders? I have been walking some public trail ways that are local to me and have run into quite a lot of horse riding people. I do enjoy seeing the horses and most of the folks are friendly and happy. But they do leave a fair amount of pretty big poops all along the trails. These trails are pretty small so it’s hard not to notice all the poop piles as I’m walking along. Should the riders have to clean this up? I feel if I have to clean up my dogs poop shouldn’t this apply to all animals out ..read more

@Hyintensity wrote: I apologize if my post is out of place. If I need go elsewhere, please direct me. I am looking to hire help to do hikes along the AT or other trails. Location can include anywhere, but in the US to start would be preferred. I have lots of experience hiking. I have completed 400mi and 6 weeks solo on the AT before. I was doing a thru hike and broke my foot so I had to quit. After a long life of sports I am unable to carry heavy loads. I can still hike strong. I currently live in Golden, CO I am sending out feelers to see if there is a service or team that could carry the lo ..read more

Wearing bright colours?

@Karla wrote: It is truly sad to hear that the body of Charles Kelly has been found in Glen Etive after seven weeks. I’m very sorry for the loss of his friends and family, but this isn’t the first time someone has gone missing and it’s taken weeks to find them, and I’m sure it won’t be the last. I wonder if there is anything to prevent such tragedies, such as wearing bright colors on the hills and carrying a first aid kit? Please leave your valuable input about gear or what cool stuff is in your first aid kit… Posts: 1 Participants: 1 Read full topic ..read more

At the moment I’m trying to account for all 1000 members of a WWII Omaha Beach mission I’ve been studying for 20 years - trying to locate their gravesites so I can (A) correct the Army and Navy’s horrendous name spelling, and (B) gather what memories I can about them from living family, before everyone who knew them personally is also gone. It’s been a remarkable strategy until I went to findagrave.com to look up Private Maurice Parker Wintturri of Massachusetts, who was on this mission. He wasn’t there. In fact ..read more
