I usually read trail journals instead (on trailjournals.com or postholer.com). They are free! I usually follow a couple each year. This year I'm following my friends and fellow Oregonians Balls and Sunshine on the AT, plus Boston and Cubby on the American Discovery Trail. The latter journal is getting rather boring as they are mostly hiking from one restaurant/food store to the next! I'm close to gaining weight just reading about it!
May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view--E. Abbey
