Quick question about the New Trent… could you charge your camera off it too? Just trying to figure out which New Trent device to buy
Yes..I could charge both my IPhone and my Sony digital camera with the New Trent device. But never really had a need to charge my camera up between town stops. Probably the only reason I had to charge my IPhone up (mainly kept it turned off) was because I used it as my iPod as well. I shared the New Trent with more hikers for their phone charges than what I used it for myself. For the weight I would still carry it again and will carry it with me this spring on the BMT.
Good Luck on your hike…it’s a great journey!
Look forward to following your blog.
Thanks! I’m hoping to carry more food, and skip a few towns (so visit town every 5 days instead of every 3)… and this will help. Awesome idea.
Would you recommend the Marmot Hydrogen for the PCT then? I’m looking at getting one for it but I’m a bit worried it won’t be warm enough. But I’m a pretty warm sleeper and I’ll use a silk liner. Thanks!
Yes…It did great for me, I’m also a warm sleeper. I only had a few nights where I used my liner and some additional clothing. Lots of hikers prefer a 20 degree bag…it’s really what ever your comfortable in or over you at night.
Great Blog! I am making a plan to hike a section of the Pinhoti Trail after Thanksgiving and to “thru-hike” the AT starting March 13, 2018. The info you shared is a great help. Did you use “paper maps” on the Pinhoti Trail? If yes, do you recall where you acquired them?
Thanks in advance,
as in: “a hitch in his getalong”
I used the trail guide off the Pinhoti Trail Alliance website at http://www.pinhotitrailalliance.org/. I also use a GPX – Viewer App on my iPhone which I found some gps waypoints somewhere. The trail through Alabama was no problem to follow at all. The trail in Georgia was a completely different story. I also used a hike planning spreadsheet which I’ll be glad to share it with if you email me.
