Re: Spring 2017 Thru Hikers

Re: Spring 2017 Thru Hikers

@DallinW Thanks for the info on the APP. I bought the map set, 69 sheets printed front and back, 8.5x11 sheets. The entire set weighs 1.2 lbs.

Re: Spring 2017 Thru Hikers

Planning a thru hike in March of 2017, has anyone used the AZT APP downloaded on their phone for navigational purposes? How does it work when there isn't phone service? Was it worth using? Thanks!

Re: Spring 2017 Thru Hikers

@rcorfman Thanks for the reply. I do have all that information and check frequently on the AZT site for updates regarding water supply. Guess I will never get an answer to my question.
