Very valid points. I'll be going for a week. I believe is the current plan.I do a lot of hiking in Maine all summer and ski all winter. Your idea sounds good but I'm not driving down for 15 hours to go hiking when I'm arriving Thurs night and leaving Sunday. That leaves only 2 days to drive the dragon and hang out with old and new friends. Hope you don't have to do this alone. If so, look out for the hungry bears coming out of hiberation. haha!
I've been going for a few years now. And I've had enough down time in past years - to have hiked, I just wasn't in-shape enough to even dare.
I hope to start training for tri's in the next few years and eventually, Road Bike the area. Super insane dangerous, yes, I know. But that's okay with me. But I don't want to threadjack too much. So, just pm me, if you'd like to go back and forth a little more. Thanks!
