I've been hiking/backpacking close to 5 years, plus 22 years with the military. I have come to love hiking/backpacking. I have hiked sections of the Appalachian Trail, Palmetto Trail in South Carolina, Sipsey Wilderness in Alabama, and Big Hill Pond State Park in Tennessee. I started out with a 45 lb to 50 lb (20 to 23 kg) pack. After meeting other hikers using lighter gear has encouraged me to get lighter gear of my own. My current pack weight is 28 lb - 30 lb (13 to 14 kg) now.
I intend to test Heat Holder Socks several upcoming hiking/backpacking trips. I will be out for 2-3days/nights on the Appalachian Trail. The average temperature will be 27 Degrees Fahrenheit (15 Degrees Celsius), with an average elevation of 2,949Feet (899 Meters) above sea level. I will also be out for 2-3days/nights on the Pine Mountain Trail for this test as well. I will be using a tent on some of the test and hammock, tarp.
