    Sounds good! As far as head nets/bug go, we've found that after mid August, the bugs are not an issue in WY. July? Forget about it.

    Cool! Let's see how next summer shapes up. I was thinking mid-late august is a fine time, bugs are mostly gone, leftover snow is melting fast, etc. BUT, I might try to hike the CDT next summer,...

    IF you are a fairly experienced hiker/backpacker, take a look at the Sierra High Route (not to be confused with the High Sierra trail, maybe worth looking at as well).

    The SHR roughly parallels...

    Well, I do certainly get it..... my first long trail (except for a 230 mile JMT) was indeed the AT. After that I completed the Long trail (270 miles), the CT (485 miles) the Sierra High route (230...

    thanks, good info, I had checked on travel to CT/Mass, I could fly in/out of Boston and satisfy requirements (from CO), but alas, Billygr points out:

    Yikes! wow, I missed that, oh well, time...

    Great info, thanks Slo!

    As far as getting to the trail, are the trains out of NY not running? I was planning on flying into LGA, taking the Harlem train north to the AT station near Pawling,...

    Maybe that's a good thing, missing the peak of foliage as I'll be missing the peak of the Leaf Peepers too. I was wondering when the peak was, so thanks, and good to confirm that it's a pleasant...
  9. Connecticut and Mass in late October....

    Just a gentle question for the locals in western MA/CT.... is late October a reasonable time of year to hike the AT through those parts? I realize it would probably be pretty chilly at times,...

    Too much on-trail work, there are much better things to do (eat, drink, wash, socialize, etc). Prepackage them and stop worrying, they will last just fine.

    I have done the freezer-bag repackaging thing for close to 10 years, and as we all know, plans change (like this year!), and I've used repackaged meals up to a year "old", and really haven't noticed...

    Oh, and per your other questions, water, temperatures, etc: water is nearly always PLENTIFUL for early starters, and temperatures are chilly at night and the mornings, but very comfortable for...

    Every year is sooooooo different regarding leftover snow for early starters, you just have to wait and see. I know that's not helpful....

    YEah, I remember you earlier talking about coming out, and I had wondered what had happened, sorry you had that condition and hopefully all resolved.

    FWIW, the CO trail is quite the "zoo" this...

    I guarantee you I'm the world's biggest heat-wimp, so basically I just can't do it (hike in the heat). I hiked the entire AT without ever touching the trail in the summer. So, easy solution here in...

    Well, not that long for Chi-basin visiting folks using the Purgatory approach vs. train/Needleton, an extra 8 miles, and pretty darn easy 8 miles. 3 miles mostly downhill followed by 5 flat miles...

    Since you're asking, I assume that means you don't have the Guthook app, which has recent water availability data, so I'll paraphrase off of the app for you.

    Excellent idea, thanks. I'll swap it out day to day. I kinda lied; I'm only about 10 days into the 100-100 challenge, and I'm only up to 80 per day, 4 sets of 20. this next week I'll be up to the...
