Forgive a naive question from a newbie on this forum. I've looked around and cannot find much info on this kind of a flip-flop.
I plan on attempting the AT in its entirety in 2013. But I cannot begin until mid-late April. Way too early to be a SOBO, maybe a tad late for NOBO.
So I was thinking: Start at Harper's, head south. Flip up to Katadin, head south, finish at Harper's. The "normal" flip-flop does the southern half NOBO, right?
Is this partial-reverse flip-flop ever done? Are there some major shortcomings of this?
In all likelihood, I'll just do a straight NOBO, but just thinking about options.
Any thoughts appreciated.
