    Having slogged thru Cumberland Valley, Alec Kennedy to Darlington, last July can attest to heat, humidity and especially skeeters. Short day to the cool bar at the Doyle was nice recompense.

    I wouldn’t go without a shelter alternative, would bring at least a bivy. I have the impression shelters are less crowded SOBO, and I like them for the quicker in and out. Bugs, good point.
