    US 311 near Roanoke to Rockfish Gap is about 150 miles. That was my favorite part of VA.

    Second place would be Rockfish Gap to Harper's Ferry, also a little over 150 miles.

    Heading out for a section hike NOBO from Pen-Mar this weekend. I've heard it's been pretty dry. Anyone have recent info on the water sources between Pen-Mar and Duncannon?

    I'm heading out for a longer section from Pen-Mar to Port Clinton in early October, maybe we'll cross paths.

    FWIW, I'm probably going to stay at the Doyle on my way through Duncannon.

    Thanks everyone for the responses. Going to give crushed almonds a try instead of protein powder as this seems like a more balanced and higher calorie alternative.

    Protein Powder?

    A friend of mine recently told me that she adds protein powder to her kids' oatmeal to increase calorie content. I was thinking this might also work for backpacking. Just wondering, has anyone tried...

    There's a good size pool of water in Harper's Creek right in front of the shelter. Should be water available regardless of weather conditions.

    My BA Fly Creek 2 is big enough to hold all my gear and change clothes easily (YMMV - keep in mind I'm only 5'7", 150 lbs). Also I can pack up inside which is very nice in bad weather.

    There's nothing special on top of Lamb's Knoll - just an old radio tower enclosed by a fence. No views. There is one place near the top where a side trail comes in and there are some pretty good...

    The shelter is nice enough, though it's about 1/3 mile off-trail. The water source is good, it's a creek (called Pickle Branch) which is a short but steep scramble downhill from the shelter.

    Your car will be fine in either location. That's a tough section with several back to back 2000' climbs and descents.

    Both shelters have good water. Hurricane shelter is nice, built early 2000's I believe.

    Trimpi is an older stone shelter. It's pretty dark inside. Watch your head if you sleep in the top bunk.

    Yep, most of us down south are sitting in the A/C, waiting for September.

    Went for a 5 mile run at 6 AM this morning and was dripping wet with sweat by the end.

    I know this is off-topic, but 11 days to get from Blackburn to Pen-Mar is extremely slow. I did that section in 3.5 days and I'm no speedster.
