1. Due to the amount of SPAM from foreign countries lately, we have made the decision to manually approve all new members. While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    Hello all,
    My name is Andrew. I'm originally from Pennsylvania but moved to Florida back in 2003. After the last hurricane that devastated our town my family and I decided to move the the area we evacuated to (we haven't even gone back to check on our house yet.).
    Seeing as I have spent the last 14 years in FL and only wandered the FL wilderness I have no clue of what gear to even carry on a day hike up here in North Carolina.
    If anyone could help me out in figuring what gear to carry I would greatly appreciate it!

    Welcome young fellar. We have several members up your way, try to hook up with one for guidance. Also look for local outings posted on the forum. You don't need much to get started, and can make a lot yourself. Check out the bushclass, and homemade gear sections of the forum. joe

    Greetings from the Nutmeg State and welcome to the Clan! There are plenty of members from NC, who I am quite sure will give you assistance. Also, check out BushClass and @IA Woodsman videos on YouTube. He is a solid and grounded fellow that just provides information and instruction, doesn't sell you anything.

    Welcome from the Triad area, NC. The basics are about the same everywhere. Do some short hikes and figure out what you need to do different from what you did in FL.. I don't expect in will change very much, other than the temperature.
