comment How do you avoid Norovirus on the AT?
I'm just mentioning it as potentential alternate vectors. There are large areas of the Sierra and also major parks in the Canadian rockies, along with portages in the BWCA that have what I consider to be very high densities of traffic. (In all of these you meet people every few minutes) However even the AT is sparse compared to a mall in any city. So why AT and not elsewhere.

I thought that was clear. They aren't somewhere else, they are dead.

comment Most common infectious diseases acquired in the wilderness?
@BenCrowell Trips I did included the Red Deer River, both the South and North Saskatchewan Rivers, the Athabasca and the Nechako River where they go through widespread agricultural zones. I was more concerned about crop chemical residues than I was about disease. Hiking trips included large regions that have quad access, as well as horse access. Not pristine.

comment Most common infectious diseases acquired in the wilderness?
@CareyGregory I attribute it to poor dishwashing because the 'grubs' in the group -- the ones who didn't bother to clean their cup and spoon, seemed to be more likely to get sick; while staff usually set an example of keeping a clean cup, and not borrowing/loaning cups only rarely got sick.

comment Does a pound on your foot equal 5 pounds on your back?
With training, I would go hiking in water boots. Essentially a neoprene sock with a rubber sole. Got started on this canoeing. At 50 I was still running circles around the 14-17 year old boys on our 1 week trip.
