Just wondering when approximately do the last SOBO's end in Springer? Trying to prepare mail drops for cold weather drops.

If you left in June and nothing went wrong, you'd be finishing sometime in October or early November. Otherwise December - January? Hard telling exactly.

The last of the stalwarts are driven to be done by Christmas.

I am planning a late nov/early dec finish with a mid June start. And I don't anticipate being in any hurry whatsoever.

November is the most common month for a SOBO to finish, closely followed by December. But October and January also see some finishers.

I started at Katahdin on June 1st and arrived at Springer on October 19th. Many of my friends from the trail finished within about a week of that. I would say November is a very reasonable estimate for finishing the trail given a mid-June start.

We are planning for early November. Leaving mid June.
