I'm just starting to piece together a 2012 itinerary. Does anyone want to share theirs? I'm looking at a mid April to early May start which I know means black flies and mud. Does anyone know how wet April and May are in Maine and New Brunswick? I'm okay with mud as long as there's a chance of getting out of it now and then. I was on the southern half of the A.T. for the second time in 2008 during tropical storm Fay and had to leave the trail after 3 days of non-stop rain. Is it that kind of wet, or more like intermittent light showers kind of wet?
