    Not sure how he determined them. Some may need tweaking.

    Getting excited to go again, hopefully a bit longer this time-hoping for The NOC or Fontana. What's your goal this time?

    Similar to Companion/Databook speak...

    East and West—Regardless of compass direction, “east” or “E” and “west” or “W” are used as
    they are in the A.T. Data Book and the series of 11 A.T. guides: “East” is to the northbounder’s
    right and the southbounder’s left, when referring to the Trail.
