    I’m an inexperienced hiker, and your gear reviews are very helpful, thanks :-) I was just thinking that Zip-Locs would be very necessary for a hike so I was glad to read that you thought so too, ha!

    This is one of the best reviews that I have read. GREAT job and THANK YOU!

  4. Hi Alice! Thanks for posting this. I have a question about your SPOT device – how long did the batteries last since you used the tracking mode all the time? I’m considering doing this for the JMT this year, but probably won’t if I have to carry a bunch of extra batteries.

    VERY much enjoyed your comments Have re-read them several times. My husband and I are attempting (no, DOING) our first thru-hike in 2016 and I’m obsessing over details. You mentioned sugar in the med Kit. What is sugar used for? Thanks again for all the info!

    • Alice says:

      The sugar in the med kit is for emergency treatment of hypoglycemia or hypothermia. I carried hot chocolate packets for this purpose too, but in my food bag, and I ate them as I went… Disclaimer: I am not a doctor or medical professional; this is not medical advice.

      High five for doing a thru-hike next year — have an amazing time!

    How are you adjusting to the different off trail diet? I’m surprised more LD hikers don’t have eating disorders after their LD hikes.
