A LDH on the Backpacker forum mentioned he didn't use trekking poles because they used up more calories than they were worth. I like using trekking poles generally, but wonder if the posters comments are valid? Do poles use up more calories than they are worth? How many LDHers use trekking poles? Now I am wondering....
I watched Walking The West- "Hiking 2600 miles from Mexico to Canada about a hike on the PCT. I noticed the two hikers on the video didn't use trekking poles but they did carry an ice axe. That got me thinking. Seems like I use trekking poles like a second pair of arms and hands at times.
