    Hey,

    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

    • dnlangford says:

      Acorn,
      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.

    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!

    • dnlangford says:

      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,
    “Hitch”
    as in: “a hitch in his getalong”

      Hitch,
      Thank you!
      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.
      Happy Trails!
