    Thanks so much for all the information to everyone who posted. Based on everyone's help here is my current plan:

    I plan is to just hike straight thru without staying at Whitehouse Landing. I am staying with the AT Lodge pre hike and they are going to do my resupply midway.

    I think I will just keep my trail runners on the whole time and have extra dry socks.

    As always my plan is subject to change. Thanks again,
    Rick

    Looks like you have a plan, I broke it up in half and pack weight was never an issue for either section. Hope for great weather and go for it.

    Resupplying at Jo-Mary is reliable. Abol Bridge is a great place to camp the night prior to entering Baxter and summiting. Shoes for fording; not necessary. You got the idea. Were your hikers right in the water, change your socks when you get out of the water and drive on!

    WHL is a great place to chill for a day if you have the time! I found the folks there decent when I went through in 2012 SOBO. As for friendly; depends on your definition of friendly. I am rather an a-hole myself but will help anyone out and I can say the same for Bill and Linda. They have issues with entitled folk not having any sense at all. Have some manners, slow your roll, pick up after yourself/LNT, and for goodness sake don't complain about pricing at off-grid hostels/lodging facilities. Lastly, think before you speak!
