    Default Anyone going SOBO in early July?

    I'm going to begin my SOBO hike probably within the first two weeks of July and I am doing this solo so I wanted to see if anyone would also be starting around that time that would make a good hiking partner!?

    I am planning a SOBO attempt starting 7 July and then on with the trail on the 8th. My wife will be driving me up on 6 July. I am in search of someone who has a site reserved (I swing in the trees) that would'nt mind sharing.

    Partnering up for the 100 mile wouldn't be a bad idea to say the least!

    My SOBO start date, as indicated in an earlier post, may be delayed for a couple of weeks to which I would then be departing mid to late July.

    I fear I may have caused a stress fracture in one of the Ol' Dogs due to a training injury so I must rest the foot and do more biking for cardio!

    I really... hope this gets better before my departure, either way I am still going to attempt a SOBO!

    Will be doing the same here. Hopefully the unrelenting rain we have had in June will subside...

    My girlfriend and I have a reservation at Katahdin stream July 5th to the 7th then heading South. I am about to book flights to Boston then a bus to Bangor then pay $175 for a shuttle to Baxter... I wish there was an easier way

    Is there an easier way!?!?!

    I plan on starting either July 1 or July 4 for a solo SOBO, no camp reservation yet for Baxter.

    Rent a subcompact car for $100 a day and drive from Chicago to Bangor. Even with gas it's probably cheaper than flying for two people. Then take the local bus to Millinocket?

    Thanks for the suggestions forrest! The flight to Boston and bus to Bangor is actually only $140 total. I am most worried about arriving in Bangor at 5:40pm and making it to Katahdin Stream Campground in time to check in the same night before they close at 8:30pm.

    Do most people get a shuttle from the AT Lodge once they make it to Millinocket?

    $100.00 a day will get you a huge sub- compact, maybe even a compact motor home.

    I think the local bus (Cyr) goes to Medway. The AT Lodge has a package deal where they will pick you up from the bus, stay the night with them, and they will deliver you to Baxter the next morning.

    Disclaimer: I've never done it, I'm just researching it for next year!
