On the bad side Guthooks appears to have torched their entire user base with the last update so people can’t access their maps other than the one they currently have open.
Fixes aren’t working.
On the other hand they have a neat feature for following friends and family on the trail.

F I’M FOLLOWING SOMEONE AND I DON’T PURCHASE THE FULL TRAIL GUIDE, WHAT CAN I SEE?
If you’re following a hiker and choose not to purchase the full trail guide for their trail, you will be able to see any location and check-in that they share, no matter where it is, but you will only be able to see the line of the trail and the waypoints for the demo section or any sections you have purchased.
I just deleted the app and restored from the App Store. That solved everything.
It even kept all the data from when I tracked where we were on the AT. Neat.

A Quick and Dirty Guide to The Pacific Crest Trail
We went out before Mother’s Day when the mountains were still mostly empty and did eight miles for practice.
There are real differences between the Appalachian Trail and PCT style hikes—more than just the altitude.
Sunglasses are always a kind of thing on the AT. Important (to avoid snow blindness) on the more open hiking. Our tent did well, proper pitching avoids moisture problems.
Lots more thoughts, but right now I’m just enjoying the practice hikes with my love.
Best Hostels on the Appalachian Trail: 2017 Hiker’s Choice
Of all things the Yellow Deli was closed when we went through.
Don’t remember seeing The Notch hostel or Greasy Creek.
But much of this is very spot on.
