    The well-known hammock gear maker “Dutch”, of Dutchwaregear came very close to the same fate about three years ago.

    White House Landing in Maine

    Yes, Harrison’s is a must stop IMHO. It’s 3/10’s of a mile down a blue blazed trail from Pierce Pond shelter.

    Do you use hard insoles such as Superfeet or Power Step?

    For me the arch on the insole helps control forward movement in the shoe.

    I wore my vertice rain pants through the mosquito infested southern most two miles of Baxter State Park and had no issues with biting on my legs. I thought that was a good test.
