    I'm pretty sure this is Sucker pond outlet at 8.4 miles north of MA/VT line. Don't remember if there was a clear enough spot to tent near-by.

    Check to see if Yogi's CDT Handbook is still available. My copy is from 2012, so is a bit dated but most of the info is likely still current. Towns don't move :)

    Shouldn't be a problem there. Apparently a little sketchy up north. It's worth the investment in the Guthooks app, if you haven't already. As close to real time info as you can get.
