Hi Jay,
 By mid June each of the last ten years or so about 80 southbounders have
left Baxter and entered the 100 Mile. When I spoke with Baxter Park HQ a few
weeks back I was told they've heard from dozens of southbounders making
reservations at Katahdin Stream and Abol so far.
As far as advice: Prepare for bugs, bring a head net, DEET, long sleeves and
pants, and a tent. The only bus gets in from Bangor about 7:45 PM in a town
many miles from the Park. Contact the AT Lodge in Millinocket, they have a
deal where they'll pick you up, put you up for the night, feed you in the
morning at the AT Cafe, and shuttle you right to the campground. Book two
nights in a lean to at Katahdin Stream for the night before and after your
have fun!
