So my hiking buddy had some terrible luck with his recent hernia surgery, recover has taken months instead of days, but luckily it looks like his doctor will clear him for hiking next week.
That being said, I've lost most of my summer hiking (with company) and been mostly doing day hikes solo. But now it's time to get back out there.
I want to plan a 4-5 day hike, because it's long over-due and because I need to finish the full review of all the gear I've previewed.
So what will it be? The Loyalsock Trail? The Maryland portion of the AT? Or is there something that's equally close (to Baltimore) that might be... Dare I say... Better?
