    Default To late to flip-flop?

    My girlfriend and I are planning on starting a flip flop hike starting in Hamburg Pennsylvania. Was curious how long it may take to get to Maine, and more to the point, weather we could get there in time. Not really all to worried about winter down south, Feal that we're pretty well prepared for that
    Still are going to try, but just thought it would be nice to know what everyone thought the chances of getting to Maine in time are

    Lots of time. If you start in Hamburg you will be ahead of a lot of NOBO thru-hikers that started a bit late

    how long it will take? 2-3 months depending on how fast you go. You'll have time to take a bit longer than that as well

    There's certainly time, though you will be walking into winter after the flip. PA is roughly the halfway point, so most likely it will take you 2.5 to 3 months to get to Katahdin. A typical thru hike is around 5-6 months.

    Bottom line: You have the time to do the flip-flop.
