I am in the process of planning my 2008 Thru Hike and a question came up:

As of right now I am compiling a loose intinerary that is based on a few things that will take me off-trail for a few days (ie. Brother's college graduation, best friend's wedding, etc).

The first event will take me off trail for the week following Trail Days. I would need to get to the DC/Baltimore area and then back to restart the hike.

Sounds like I should be able to Yogi a ride out of town after TD's but getting back in might be another matter. Has anyone had luck with the bus to/from Damascus? Greyhound says it's 14 hours out of DC. Man that just sounds nuts.

I have greyhound'ed from the trail and back a couple of times from down south to baltimore, its not a fun ride. It took us 19 hours to get to GA, then around 16 to get back from Damascus VA. (theyre schedule is crap). If financially and socially possible, try and avoid greyhoud for over 10hr rides. From a johnny to a johnny, greyhound gets you from a A to B, just after they take you to C, D, E, C again, G H, L, and Z.
