OK ... I'm revising this to do the Loyalock Trail in Pennsylvania. I'll re-plan everything in the next day or so.
Get yer books and maps here.
Trip size is limited to ten.
Here's how this will work. We'll meet and leave Grosvenor at 9am, Friday, 5/23. I'm backing up the time so we can hopefully dodge some traffic. We'll drive to the end of the trip (only four hours!). There, we'll be met by a commercial shuttle, which will take us to the beginning of the trip. There is a charge for the shuttle, but we'll be saving a lot compared to the longer drive to Lake Placid.
(Still arranging commercial shuttle.)
(The car situation remains unchanged. My car and Matt's rental.)
We should be hiking in the afternoon. We'll cover about 11 miles that evening and camp by Little Grandad Run. Hopefully, Karan will walk in to join us.
Saturday morning, we'll be up to walk a good, strong day. It seems we'd have options to camp at 17 miles for the day (mile 28) and 23 miles (mile 34). Sunday, another full day. There is a campsite at Toms Run (mile 50). We'd finish up on Monday, and go in search of a pub. We'd visit the Bullfrog, if it's open. It wasn't last year. :(
So the splits might be[masked] or[masked]-9. Three nights out. That would be a good solid long weekend. In some ways, it's more of classic DC UL trip.
