    She was dressed as a trail runner, so I guess she thought she could do the traverse quickly. The family was staying at a timeshare in the Notch, with a clear view of Lafayette so she should have...

    I left HF April 19th this year with a 30 degree bag and was fine. Even though the day we showed up at HF it was snowing! Ended up at a hostel that night instead of going straight to the shelter after...

    The better option is to leave well enough alone and use the down bag as a quilt over the Cat's Meow. Of course, the best option is just to spring for a quality down bag or quilt and be done with it....

    Starting mid-May you avoid the worst of the early spring weather, so you have fewer zeros or low mileage days due to bad weather. Most of the NOBO crowd is ahead of you so there is less competition...

    About the only places to stay in CT are expensive B+Bs. You could probably use UBER for slack packing.

    Abington gap is like 460 miles in. If you don't have your trail legs by then, you never will. This bear will no doubt den someplace near where he is now and wake up hungry sometime in late March....

    The Martz Bus station is about a 1/4 mile, 15 minute brisk walk from the church hostel in the DWG. I timed it so I'd get to the bus on time. I also bought the ticket the day before, so I didn't have...

    Once too the ski lift on Pico peak (VT) and ended up far from where we should have been. Was a bit of a difficult bushwack to get back to the trail! The only other lift to the trail I can think of is...

    The climb out of Bly gap is a "stairway to heaven". It's not hard, just a long and steady up. Mt Albert a few miles north is more of a little scramble near the top.

    You can't even see Stagecoach Road on Google earth. Looks to be all of three houses off the road, probably seasonal places. Just hike out to RT9.

    If you have a synthetic fill bag, that is the problem. Down will compress much smaller and be much lighter. For a price.
    The tent might also be a problem. A single wall, trekking pole supported,...

    Ballance rock is off the side of the trail. I don't remember the trail past it as being much of a problem. Getting over to the Ballance rock is another thing. It was a bit more of a rock scramble...

    Most trailheads are located at the top of a steep, narrow, twisty road which may or may not be paved. Not the best roads for an RV to navigate and forget the gas mileage. Consider having a car to...

    I got into following several of those V-bloggers this season. Most have intro videos with gear and planning before the hike. Once on the trail, it is pretty much rinse and repeat, but that's what...

    Just show up, you'll meet all kinds of like minded friends to hike with. In fact, too many.

    The Inn at the Long Trail is at the start of the Killington -> NH dog leg. I don't believe there is any convenient lodging along that section. Maybe a B+B ($$$) Anyway, it can be done in a few days.

    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.

    Columbus weekend is typically when the weather turns, and...

    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.
