    Guess that means that my GPS is going to need to keep a moving fix on your pack during STP...

    Perhaps you can arrange to carry a BLB (beer locator beacon) as well

    Now that is something that I would def buy if they sold one. I certainly could have used one.. Now that I think about it every time I slowed downed and waited for GGG he seemed to get this little grin and sped up quickly. I think is internal beer beacon was working very well.

    Ok...stupid question, where can you take showers? That would be swell before relaxing in N. Conway on the way home.

    Looks like a great hike, from beginning to tasty end. I also like to have a few cold ones waiting a stream.

    happy trails

    Yes just like stated before at Pinkam Notch. The showers cost about $1.25-$2 depending on the time you want to spend in the shower. Trust it me it was well worth the few quarters to take a nice hot shower once you hit the bottom.
