I looked for a Crawford Notch State Park email address, that I might copy them on a lauding reply, but to no avail.

Well, regardless, as do all those who give so much to make the AT happen, you rock so much, RD. I mean, aside from your off-season efforts, you then go ahead and do the travel, do the gas, do the wear&tear on the auto, do the rain, do the hard ground, do alllllllll the feed action and such...

...but to think that there would be a dollop of grief in there too, in the form of bureaucracy *that* *should* *know* *better*....... Dang.

Well, my continuing very best wishes to you, and deepest thanks.

one-time hiker-type, longggggg long ago.

The busiest day all summer was Saturday, Sept. 1. Mara (Stitches), Artie (a friend of the trail) and I greeted and fed 31 hikers, 25 of them NoBo hikers. This is the highest daily number all summer and, in a way, is a puzzle. Some are planning to finish in 15 days, others will take nearly 6 weeks to reach Katahdin. We fed a total of 68 hikers on the weekend, making a "season total" of 325 hikers.  The weather was beautiful all weekend in Crawford Notch, with 70's in the daytime, down to high 40's at night.
