    I backpacked the section from Franconia to Kinsman Notch sobo. I didnt think it was particularly onerous. Top mile of South Kinsman is really steep. I'm pretty sure I butt slid down a lot of it, but...

    I usually see it in the fall when the nights start dipping below freezing. It usually turns to mud once it warms enough to thaw later in the morning.

    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.

    That's not even the worst you are going to hike compared to what's coming up. You are going to have so much fun!

    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.

    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.
