Stabler Store closing is not a big deal.

78% hike directly from Cascade Locks to White Pass. It's quite normal.

What some folks do is skip the 34 miles between Cascade Locks and Wind 
River Rd and just walk Wind River Rd to Panther Crk Rd to the PCT at 
Panther Crk CG. You can shave a 34 mile day off that way. This doesn't 
work for the purist! :)

If you're considering Trout Lake, you really need to think twice about 
that decision. It's roughly 20 miles off-trail on a forest service road; 
getting a hitch by most accounts will be a major pain. Subjective 
testimonials of a few folks saying they had no problem should not be 
confused with the reality of it. Only 6% of hikers in the past have used 
Trout Lake and for good reason.
