    September and early October is without a doubt the best time to hike ME/NH. I can't wait. However, it can also be the worst time to hike.

    The Mahoosucs (and much of Maine) doesn't get much maintenance so is overgrown. If you have to hike through there in the rain, your Frogg Toggs will get shredded.

    Then you're pretty much screwed. While there are a couple of small clear spaces just big enough to lay down in along the trail south of the shelter, those may also be in use if the shelter and tent...

    Zeros cost you extra money, so unless you really need the break, most thru hikers try to avoid them. Weather can be a factor, especially if you start early and need to avoid bad weather (like...

    The bus to Gorham often arrives up to an hour late due to traffic leaving Boston if it's a weekday. Usually on time for Sat/Sun. The stop is at the Erving gas station, which adds a mile to get to the...

    If I were to go back to CO, I'd go straight to Leadville and spend a week there doing easy day hikes before getting serious. There's a bus from Denver to Leadville, so getting there is no problem.

    2) The hostel was already full
    3) I didn't want to go any farther that day.

    In retrospect, it was a mistake to stay...

    It probably took that long to map out a route and to create it. Any new trail work would have had to have waited until spring.

    It can take 4 to 6 months to complete the trail. Where in that time span do you think you fall?

    Any type of stove has the potential to start a fire, if it malfunctions or is miss-used. I can think of situations where having an off switch isn't going to help much if you can't get near it. (Out...

    Clearing GA in 6 days is reasonable. Clearing the Smokies in 15 could be a stretch, after doing GA in 6. Really no big deal if it takes a couple days longer.
