    I'll be arriving in Bangor on the 26th of June, haven't quite smoothed out the details of a shuttle to Katahdin... Anyone else starting around then?

    I'm Flying into Bangor on June 27th. I'm not registering here for a sobo though, I started nobo in late march and did 700 miles then flew to France. I'm going to head south and do Maine and the presidentials then wing it from there.

    With lots of physical therapy and some hard training, phase 2 of my Appalachian Trail thru hike is coming together. Well, at least I have set a few dates ... Looks like 4th of July on Katahdin.

    Default Shoulder season gear or summer for Early July Sobo start?

    Been looking at historical weather data to determine if it's prudent to leave heavy-weight bags and base layers at home for an early July start, and thinking maybe not. I see average lows on Mt Washington around 40, but historically as low as 24. Thought maybe I should take the pulse of the forum on this one.

    I'm flying into Bangor on July 2nd and hope to begin my SOBO attempt on the 3rd. I'll be hiking with a friend through the 100-Mile Wilderness, but solo after that. Still working on Bangor-to-Baxtor shuttle details and hopefully a mid-wilderness food drop. Looking forward to seeing ya'll out there.

    Starting my attempt SOBO on the 21st of July! It will be an interesting galavant through the beautiful Maine wilderness. Can you just imagine how many Indians walked through these very woods and swam in the very same holes! How many vikings and or Crusaders made it to Maine well before Christopher Columbus discovered North America? These will be the questions running through my mind as I walk south, rediscovering where I came from and maybe where I am going!

    Good luck and I will be seeing you all out on the trail!

    Got thru the 100 mile wilderness and am scarfing down a burger at Lakeside in Monson. Posted some pics at my blog linked below.

    Any possibility of a ride from Bangor (or Boston) up to Katahdin in late July for 2 SOBO hikers? Please let me know. We'd be happy to provide monetary compensation and good company.

    Cheers,
    Marlo

    Im sure this has been asked before but, any advice for the first couple nights starting a SOBO. IVe never been to Baxter SP before and they said most everything is booked for my start date of August 15. They said I might be able to stay at Abol or camp outside the park? If there is another forum with information about this hopefully someone can point me in the right direction... thanks!

    Still out there?
    No blog post since August 3rd.
    The trouble I have with campfires are the folks that carry a bottle in one hand and a Bible in the other.
