    True, but you could always have a tailgate party across the road in the parking lot for the "old" AT/LT. It would be worth a trip across the street for the ILT's Irish Guiness stew or their reuben sandwich.
    I, personally think their nachos are only ok.
    Just watch crossing Rte 4 .

    I don't know the last time Wolf was at the Inn at Long Trail, but I was just there last week.

    It's not that expensive a place at all, especially when you consider its location.

    And the proprietors have always been cool with hikers camping across the street, as they know not everyone wants (or can afford) to stay in the Inn.

    So really, you can spend time here without spending an inordinate ammount of cash, and you should definitely check the place out if you're in the area. Good times, good food and drink, and really friendly staff.

    it's very expensive for budget minded hikers http://www.innatlongtrail.com/dining.htm#menu
    $4-$6 for a beer plus menu items add up

    Welll, yeah. Going to restaurants costs money. But considering its location, I don't think the food prices are out of line at all. I can think of places all up and down the Trail that have comparably priced items on their menu (the NOC, etc). And nobody is ever compelled to buy a six dollar beer either. But if you think you're gonna pay $2.75 for a Guiness there (or anywhere else on the Trail for that matter), you're likely to be in for a surprise.

    I have had some of the local Long Trail brewery's products and was well impressed. Particularly liked the pint glass I got that says "Take a hike" on the back

    Why do you keep saying, considering it's location. It's a beer joint along a highway. What's special about it's location?

    Is there any particular place at the campground where people from WB/Billville are going to be camping?

    There will be one place where everyone will be camping, so folks should be pretty easy to find. The campsite opens at noon Friday and people can stay thru the weekend. There will be a one-time-only fee of $5.00 for camping (per person, not per tent), and this is good for the whole weekend. Dogs are welcome, but must remain leashed.

    Any hikers could always stay at the back home again cafe and hostel, if you don't mind listening to very strange religious music first thingin the morning. (Other than that, it was very nice. Free bunk, free good food, and all I had to do was sweep out the bunkrooms. And their bread is soooo good)

    Were is the "12 tribes" located. We might want to drive past their place if we have nothing else to do just sort of like a tourist attraction thing.

    Does anyone know where I can get a quick online map of the long trail? We might want to take a talk there this weekend.

    Not that I know of. There will probably be people there with maps, Panzer, in case you don't want to purchase one.

    You should know as well as anyone else, that's just what food and beer go for in New England. Particularly in a tourist area.

    Maybe it has something to do with the fact that it's location is across the street from Killington & Pico, where a season pass for skiing will run you a thousand dollars or so.

    Skiers and downhill mountain bikers tend to have some money to throw around on their vacations; the "beer joint along a highway" you mention has rooms available that go for $600-$900 and change on certain weekends.

    That they're so cool to hikers is pretty remarkable. I imagine that's why Jack says "considering its location."
