    That's a pretty strenuous section of trail. With the short hours of daylight getting in the miles you expect might be difficult, but what do I know?

    Not carrying a full week's of food is nice,...

    There's a bar and grill about 100 yards off the trail at a road crossing. Forget exactly where though.

    Bear spray would not have helped in my situation this time, but other times it might have been handy to have. This of course was not nearly my first encounter with an unrulily dog.

    But then, what happens in the general population this winter will determine how it affects the various aspects of the trail this spring, from travel to resupply to closures. Thru hiker season starts...

    Compared to Maine, GA is a cake walk. 2.5 MPH average should be easy to obtain.
    Not sure they really have a bug season, but I've only been there in the spring.

    It all depends on how much snow central Maine gets this winter and how fast it melts. Late May is iffy for Baxter to open. June 1st is a safer bet, but you will likely have to deal with raging rivers...

    The Budge inn at Buena Vista charges by the hour :) The Buena Vista motel is a bit more respectable, but it's a very long walk to the Food lion, which is also up hill on a busy road. It's not an easy...

    In July, it might not last too long. In the cool fall, no problem. That's pretty close to "refrigerate after opening". If you don't eat it all on the trip, then of course refrigerate it.

    You do know May is a bit early to start a SOBO? Even June can be a bit iffy. If you really want to start in May, do a modified flip flop. Trust me, you don't want to be in Maine in late May or early...

    I would guess the shuttle will be from NOC back to the car at Winding Stairs after the hike, but he doesn't actually say where he's headed that night.

    If he is heading directly to Winding Stairs,...

    What I think happened is when I started to walk by, the dog just lunged at the motion. It was sudden and unanticipated. The other problem was the trail was about 3 feet wide at the...
