  • Are you an AT hiker interested in hearing about trail conditions, bear activity or the status of water sources? In addition to their posted Trail Updates, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy is also posting podcasts of the Ridge Runner Reports.

    Even though I am not hiking that section anytime soon, I listened to the March 3rd report on Molly’s Ridge to Peck’s Corner in the Smokies and found myself learning something! They talked about all the ice, particularly near Clingman’s Dome. Crampons were even necessary for safe passage. Then they talked about a privy that is almost full.

    “Crews will not be able to address the problem until the matter thaws.”

    I’ve never thought about privy contents freezing before! 🙂

    In other news, if I ever start a band, I’m kinda digging “Frozen Privy” as a name.
