Updates and Corrections

The 2003 edition of the Companion was compiled in the fall of 2002 and published in early 2003. This page outlines corrections and updates and received since publication. It will be maintained until the next edition is published in early 2004. Updates are arranged by Companion section, from Georgia to Maine.

Do you have a correction or update for the Companion?

That is cool. This way you can check the net when you do a town stop and update with a pencil.

SGT Rock;

How exactly are you going to get the updates? Carry a laptop? Or just call home and have someone else read it over the phone?

Librarys have computers, a lot of hostles have them, and of course I can always call home. Heck, I was at my bank the other day and I needed to see something so the loan officer let me borrow the computer for a few minutes.

Interesting. I woudn't have expected hostels to have computers. And I wouldn't have expected most of the small towns to have local libraries.

Is the PC and library info listed in the guides?

Probably because listing PC locations would be a insult to backcountry ethics. <g>

I know it's in the Companion, it's probably in the Guidebook too.
One of the reasons I added a coffeeshop in Millinocket to the Companion was that they had internet access.
You have to list the things that today's hiker is looking for - good coffee and a chance to check email!:D
