    I fall, or stumble at least once a day while I'm hiking. I let myself fall gracefully. I've hurt myself a couple times, minorly, and broke and bent some trekking poles. Maybe I'm just clumsy?

    Go sobo. It's easier. All the elevation is at the Southern end.

    Don't try to ford the rivers until the water levels drop. They drop fairly quickly after it stops raining, within several hours.

    Snow just melted out of Tuckermans. Maybe the glacier will reform?

    Franconia Notch to Crawford arguably has the best views along the AT. The Pemi Wilderness shouldn't be missed.

    Where did you finish up? Crawford Notch? That's as good a start/stop point as any.

    We never have stayed at the shelter. Poor water source. You will want to to go up Baldface Circle trail, not down it. Last time we hiked up the ledges, over to Slippery Brook intersection with...

    We plan on going South from Mooselauke towards Hanover 8/31 to 9/4. There's a chance we'll cross paths at some point.

    It's a ford as much your feet may get wet. It's usually a non-issue. As far as I know, it's the only picnic table on the AT in ME. It's a nice spot for tenting.

    Bring the puffy. Bugs should mostly be gone then. But, bring some repellent, just in case. You will have a lot of elevation change from the Bigelows South. You won't have the big climbs like in the...

    Car keys so I'm sure I'm not locked out when I get back to the trailhead. I never use them hiking, but it would ruin a trip if I lost them.

    What dates? It gets cold in the mountains. It sometimes snows in September. Are you sure you want to leave the puffy at home?

    My tent, my sleeping bag, my pack. I'd add a fourth, my food. And a fifth, my air mattress. Everything else is unnecessary waste.

    Hunnersdorf bottles work well in the Winter. It's all I use. One liter in a 40 Below bottle boot and one in my pack. Works in Sub-Zero temps and I know and keep an eye on my water levels. Tragic...

    I hate hot weather. I did some trail maintenance tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday on the GNLT, cutting up blowdowns and the like. It was really too hot to work, too buggy to take clothes off. Hiking...

    What does the manufacturer say about the comfort levels for women? Are they EN rated? Some companies advertise survival temps for men as their rated temps for the bag, or quilt.

    State park parking at the trailheads. It's free, for now. I've parked my car there several times overnight. No issues. Weekends, those lots fill up early. Pretty empty by late afternoon.
