    I stayed at Upper Goose Pond for an overnight in June at one of the campsites. Caretaker never asked if we were thru-hikers. I stayed twice before on overnights and never had an issue.

    I don't think there's a parking lot on Hoyt Road, just a turnout to park a car or two. It's a secondary road that doesn't see a lot of traffic, so you should be fine just parking beside the road.

    I second what the guy above said. Just get a shuttle and you're good to go.

    There's a road crossing about 1 north of Springer. I recommend getting dropped off there (or leaving your car). Walk...

    I use Nuun tablets. Compact, lightweight, and pretty tasty. Two or three of those a day depending on mileage does it for me!

    I think it would be a lot more fun to bike the C&O Canal. That's the usual way to do it. It's straight and flat the whole way. I found the few miles the A.T. uses of the C&O route to be really...

    I recommend carrying the cuben repair tape they sell. Sticks nicely and blends seamlessly.

    I have the duplex which uses eight stakes. For the critical points, I use two V-stakes, one at each door.

    I fished at a dozen different spots in Maine. Send your gear to Rangeley and have fun. It's not worth carrying the gear any other place on the A.T. in my opinion.

    Why don't you just start from Springer in late April? That way your husband can drive you down and do his thing. That gives you 5 1/2 months to finish (with a May 1st start date.) And if you can't...

    Nice list! Looks really good. A couple of thoughts:

    Your pack at 28 oz seems really heavy for an 11 pound base weight. Are you planning to carry +15 pounds of food at most times?
