Did it in 2014 with PTNY. We took 8 days, between 40-60 miles each day. There are some on road sections, with a lot of traffic in Syracuse. There are some hills when you have to leave the original...

The ironic thing is, the pot I referenced survived 100 miles of the JMT in the Sierras, the NPT, Cranberry Lake 50 etc., but I broke the little orange tab on the lid while washing it after a car...

GSI Outdoors

I have a cookset that I bought from this company about 10 years ago. On a recent trip the lid broke. I e-mailed GSI to ask about purchasing just the lid and they sent me a new one. Unfortunately,...
