Re Re Rain gear for the CT
I used rainpants on the CT and would not go without them BUT it was late in the summer, days were shorter and it was cold. On most other trips in warmer weather I've done okay with less. I...

Re June
Unless it is a truly epic snow year I think you could do all or most of the route by mid-June. Its possible there might be enough snow on the loop that you won't complete it, no worries just do...

Re Re SUL List - Thru Hike Capable?
Just to be fair if you want the other side of the story check out Joe's lists for his thru-hikes on Zpacks.com. He was SUL or nearly so. Course there was a lot of Cuban fiber involved. I thi...
