    Yes, its a 5 mile stretch that includes Woods Hole and Blood Mountain shelters. Start on the 29th as planned and camp just before or just after this 5 mile bear vault zone. No big deal. Stupid azz regulation, though.

    I wonder if the bears realize they have been confined to a 5 mile stretch of the trail.

    Stay at Gooch Gap Shelter & hike to Neels Gap & resupply there & maybe stay at hostel. Kinda a long day for start of hike but doable especially if you have little weight in your food bag.
