I went to your web-site, then checked out your address on google maps, and it looks like you are only about two tenths of a mile from where the trail crosses US 2. Is that about right? If so, that's a very good location! It's always nice to have a hostel you can walk to from the trail instead of having to hitch or use a shuttle.

You gave me a ride into Gorham last year (I was hitching on the wrong road and thankfully you rescued me) and I promised you that I would have to come back and visit sometime. Thanks a lot by the way, will you be open year round?
