"I had Yogi's older edition planning guide when I was getting
ready and it had a few (Savant in particular) people who said they didn't
use a GPS and loved it. That gave me the motivation to be able to attept
it without, but her updated planning guide doesn't shine light on that
opinion nearly as much. I only met three other hikers without a GPS this
Ok, kyboshing is over now. Back to work.
I was also surprised when i saw that i was the only one in Yogi's updated
guide that did not use GPS.
Like you, i had a copy of her older guide to prepare for my CDT adventure
and i took heart in Savant's advice as well.
It helped push me towards the decision to ditch my GPS the day before my
hike and I did not regret that descision.
There were times when i would have gladly used a GPS, such as Sheridan Pass
Wyoming, but in the end I still found my way.
Actually, for my next hike i am seriously considering ditching the cell
There were plenty of opportunities to update journals and send email to
family and friends in towns along the CDT.
You know something wierd? I actually found more computers and better
internet connections on the CDT than on the AT.
Of course i am not inplying anything about those who use Cell phones or GPS
in what i have said. To each their own.
