Bring a good attitude - that's the most important thing you can take on the trail. Shit happens - especially on the trail.

There's not a lot of BLM land in the East but I prefer it when I can find it for hiking with my dog. The rules are generally pretty loose and I can let me dog run.

Yeah, I never go out in the summer - particularly in the south - without a river or lake nearby. This has been an especially hot summer and I even mixed in an overnight kayaking trip in western SC to beat the heat.

I live in N.C. and can vouch for 100 Classic Hikes in North Carolinaby Joe Miller. A solid book with some great trip ideas.

Twisted my knee. The scarest part was that I was by myself when I did it. Fortunately, an older couple found me and helped me off the trail.

I use them occassionally when hiking in snow/ice conditions or in areas with a lot of stream crossings.

Gregory Z55 is also nice if you are looking to cut the weight.
