    There's a "Links" link on the menu at the top of the page. On that page, there's a journals category near the bottom. That's where they all end up.

    I've been following Certain's TJ, and she made mention today of a strategy for hanging in the Whites...

    Here's her TJ entry. Paragraph starts with "Oh, by the way, to all hangers out there..."

    Hanging in the Whites is easy, I just did it today. See my trip report for the pics. I'll go read her journal entry though too.

    Edit: Ahh, just read it and can somewhat agree with her about tree density but I don't think it's that much of a challenge in all but a very few areas.

    Glad to hear how easy it is. There were a lot of folks on Whiteblaze who were curious/worried about it at one time. I guess it has been well proven to be easy now, so no problems...

    Well, it's not always super easy but not always impossible either. I think it's that hanging thru-hikers are just not used to the terrain. One needs to be more selective here and take less than ideal spots when they find them, such as the side of a hill, and be willing to go a little farther off trail as well.

    Thanks NCP, I've not been keeping up with her journal. I found this one particular interesting because her wandering off the AT onto the blue blazed Ethan Pond trail is precisely where I was about a year ago.

    In that stretch of the Whites, Franconia Notch to Pinkham Notch, it was likewise my experience that trees were typically really dense. We always did find a place to hang, but only once was it obvious where to do that.
