I have a few quick questions for any PCT Veterans.
First: Would you recommend the use of hiking poles on the whole trail? If
so, what brand/model would you suggest?
Second: Would you recommend the use of a bear-proof food container on the
whole trail? Would you recommend hanging food from trees instead?
Third: For sleeping, it seems like many of you opt for the use of a tarp as
opposed to a tent. Do you normally use a bivy sack with a tarp overhead, or
just a tarp, or just a bivy sack?
Thanks very much for your help.
