    I personally wouldn't park my car at Woody for 2 weeks. A few days, sure, but for that long I would recommend a safer spot.

    My first suggestion would be to try shuttle drivers. I know there are...

    The tread wears out extremely fast for me compared to a road tread.

    Also, the Olympus is a trail shoe, not road.

    The AWOL Guide is more useful for resupply for me. It has maps of trail towns showing where everything is that a hiker would want (grocery stores, AYCE, post office, etc) in a nice format.
