    How easy is it to catch a hitch on the MST? Particularly section 3, but I'm curious about everyone's experience across the whole trail.

    Thanks!

    You'll be fine without drops. However, you may want to take along some sort of vitamin. I don't recall seeing a vegetable until I crossed the Mason Dixon line.
