    Nope. Sorry, but it ain't gonna happen.
    Around here, we let threads live forever. That way when somebody posts to it years later and you read what you were saying 'back then', you'll laugh at your own naivety.
    It's a fun experience.
    Trust nobody!

    I just looked. The label is almost faded out but I could see that they are Terramar Thermasilk. Bonus for me is they come in tall sizes -- I'm 6'3".

    If you do decide to quit, go to town, get a motel room, and stay there for a few days. Give yourself a chance to change your mind.

    Some folks say if you're thru-hiking and it "stops being fun," you should go home. But any endeavor of this magnitude is bound to have times when it isn't "fun." You have to have a certain amount of drive and determination to get through these times.

    This is the time of year when Springer fever starts to set in. I do so wish I was getting ready to head south and start another thru-hike!
