    There's a little Burrito place off the main drag that I can't remember the name of, right around the corner from The Place. The service was a train wreck last year because it was brand new and they...

    I'd go NOBO from Springer with a May 1 start even if I didn't have to. It's a perfect time to start. No cold weather, beautiful Rododendrons and wild flowers all the way to Virginia, beautiful fall...

    My favorite in the Whites is Thoreau Falls, just .2 E off the AT (NOBO) about 2.5 miles after Zealand Falls (nice also). You need to walk down the face of the falls, which is really a cascade and...

    No problems for me whatsoever and I'm in Costa Rica, so I doubt it's a problem with the site. More likely certain internet connections.

    I don't know how much hiking you've done out east and maybe with a Jan 1 start you'll get just what you are looking for but I just want you to know what to likely expect. You are thinking winter...

    On the AT, holes, especially early in the season up until trail days, are almost non existent except after a major weather event. It's like cities on the east coast used to have space in between...

    Very true and I could add "if you can". To get 200 feet off the trail in parts of the White Mountains would require a Bulldozer.

    It could get interesting toward the end of your hike. New England Autumn will be in full swing but the Whites and Maine could kick you in the teeth. On the other hand, the beginning will be awesome. ...

    You're right. 15 years ago if I didn't have over 40 pounds in my pack I added something so that I did. I thought of it as load balance or ballest or something.

    I was guilty of a few significant blue blazes but in my mind it's because the AT went the wrong way just to make it easier and missed some special things. One was the Hagis Gulf trail in Maine. ...
