What's the longest you've gone without seeing or talking to an other person.
Curious of the spread.
Curious of the spread.
I said 2 days, most of my trips are 2 - 4 nights in the SE, it is pretty rare that I don't see someone in passing after a day or so. I've got 5 nights in SEKI coming next week, it would be nice if I did not see anyone, but I'll be on the JMT for at least some of the trip, so I know I'll see some people (hopefully not hordes of people).
Nonsense. The best question would be "Do I look better in [Dress A] or [Dress B]?"Ask any good questions? "Where is Jimmy Hoffa's body?" "Can you give me the Mega Millions numbers for this Friday?" etc...
Me too. I'm surprised so many people have made it so long on trips without seeing another soul along the trail. Looking back on my longer solo trips in remote areas I can't think of a time I ever made it more than a couple of days without seeing someone somewhere along the way.
I'm still waiting for BCP members to kick in a donation to the Beardsley foundation or the Wilderness Society or whatever.Hey, that reminds me, we're still waiting for that photo!
Also, you're on BCP, which itself is skewed toward trips a little off the beaten path.I have a suspicion that the skew toward the six + is a sampling error. That all the people on this site who have been out that long are drawn by the thread title, while others are not.
Well, like @Artemus always says, photos, please.I'm still waiting for BCP members to kick in a donation to the Beardsley foundation or the Wilderness Society or whatever.
I'm wearing my rain skirt right now actually. It's not as fashionable as the scat kilt though.
