Dude, those are great. I watched a bunch of them last week.
So I Google “The backside of nowhere?”Tuktoyaktuk
I was thinking of that too, depending on what I commit to this summer job/life wise. But no matter what I definitely want to get back out to Glacier and hike the Highline Trail properly. And now you have me looking at the cirque of the unclimbables tooYou rock!
Not exactly long. An extension of our CDT.
Go back to Glacier NP. Start at East Glacier since you couldn't really hike that last section in 2018.
Continue into Canada on the Great Divide Trail.
All the best!
Actually, I had no issues from day 1. I couldn't believe it. I live around 500ft above sea level, so I wanted to blame past appetite issues on rapid ascents to high elevation when I travel to these locations. I have had issues at lower elevations too, so I can't completely attribute it to that, but I do think I feel it more at altitude.. Loss of appetite is one of the symptoms of altitude sickness, so it makes sense, I just think it's the one symptom I feel most. I was still expecting to have little appetite in the beginning, especially in the heat, but my appetite remained normal. I was really thankful for that. Still lost 17 pounds by Pie Town though, I think mostly because I didn't carry enough food out of Doc Campbells for such a long stretch. Weight stabilized after Pie Town and ended the hike down about 17 pounds.Hey @metalbackpacker .... I just read this on your website...
"Another thing that has me worried is my lack of appetite when hiking. This has been a huge problem for me in recent years. Often times, the more I demand of my body the less appetite I have. Not only am I not hungry when I clearly should be, but food often tastes bland and things I normally like make me gag. Not being able to replenish calories makes it very tough to cover the daily miles needed to complete the trail. I’m hoping that I will “develop” an appetite after a few weeks. "
My brother and I both suffer from this exact same thing on long, multi-day trips. Its nice to know we're not alone. What was your experience with this on the CDT?
