Got Questions?

Feel free to ask me any questions about my hike or thyroid cancer or……well, anything! Email me at pctlionheart [at] and I’ll post the answers here. If you want to see what I’ve been up to lately, check my postholer journal.

  1. Is the picture from the Smart’s Mt. in New Hampshire? If so, does the AT still go over the mountain? I met the fire warden at the tower that was up there in 1972. He hauled all of his supplies up to the tower in a wicker backpack that his father had used when he was the warden. That was one of the steepest climbs on the AT at the time, no switchbacks that i remember, just straight up.

  2. Do you keep a backpack packed and ready to go, even if you don’t have a specific hike planned for the immediate future? I find it very helpful myself, even though my “yes, it could happen tomorrow…” backpack is a little dated by UL standards.

    1. I have a few items that I store in my pack but mostly it is not loaded. I don’t want to keep things like my sleeping bag compressed for long periods of time. I guess I know my setup well enough that I can throw my pack together in an instant. Thanks for the question!
