    As others have said, fly into Albany. I did this in Sept '20 and used Vic LaPort to shuttle me. He can take you from baggage claim to the trailhead. It obviously costs more that public transit but...

    Wait, there was a typo, you meant to say 579.9 instead of 559.8 for your first day. I didn't catch that. Your plan looks doable then.
  3. Do you realize that your first day is a shuttle...

    Do you realize that your first day is a shuttle which takes 60-90 minutes and then 32 miles? Based on the rest of your days, that seems really long.

    Maybe you should shuttle on the first Friday...

    Call Julie at 317-417-5351. She charges $10 per pick up and $1 per mile one way. Recently used her (her husband actually drove us) and they were great. Rid was way, way cheaper than Standing Bear....

    2 Tips that might be useful.

    1) The Indian restaurant in Hanover is really good.

    2) If possible plan to camp by Wachipaula Pond at mile 1792.2. There are gorgeous sites right near the lake. ...

    I am a little younger than you by 4 years but I still try to think that I am still young until my body tells me I can't. I walk quite a bit when not hiking which helps keep my legs fresh.

    I like...

    Somehow it seems like cheating not climbing Mt, Washington ;) It was memorable climbing in the wind and cold where I only see the next carin (sobo). I made a wrong turn and took the bypass trail...

    Yes, I hiked around there in both directions this past February and used William (Rainbow Alpaca). His number is 484-560-7813.

    He is younger with a full time job so you will have to work around...

    I bought these for my wife, but she doesn't like the fit. She wore them once on a 10 mile day hike before she decided they didn't work for her. Finding the right shoes for her is a challenge, so...

    I disagree that it would be pure chaos, because I think it already happened. There were cases in Paris and Sweden far earlier than first thought. I believe the same for NY. Didn't they do a...

    I understand why you bring it back to the ethics of hiking, that makes sense, however the ethics *depend* on how we interpret the what is going on.

    If you believe as I do that your that the virus...

    You tell them nothing, it isn't your business whether other adults hike or don't hike.

    Do you also drive slow in the left lane to help enforce the speed limit?

    You could probably save some $$ getting larger car, since there are only three of you. Vans are substantially higher to rent than cars. Another idea is to take the bus to Concord and rent from...

    Congrats. I started sectioning the Pinhoti last year myself. I am very impressed with it so far. Eventually, I hope to have hiked in a continuous path from Flagg Mt to Katahdin.

    Thanks for sharing! I took my kids hiking this past weekend on the Pinhoti, including my 2 year old. Out of the 9 miles we did, he hiked about 3 of them. He kept wanting down whenever we picked...

    If it wasn't for your May 22 date, then I would say #3. It will be muddy and buggy, and maybe even cold.

    I would vote for #1. You will want to start and end at Carvers Gap, which isn't far from...
