    I've found that bringing a Dog is always helpful. My budy brings his White Ger Shep, and she always alerts us to someone or something on the trail long before we can see or hear anything.

    I think I saw Dutch on the trail once... it was this bright light being carried BY his backpack... really strange... But everyone knows Dutch doesn't carry his backpack... it jumps off and carries HIM!

    My dad used to always tell stories when I was a kid about lions following the Susquehanna down river , but I figured those days were gone. Not that this is near there.
    I`m hitting the AT next weekend at Swatara Gap, I guess I will keep the kid tethered to me at night. Probably need to anyways.
