So I was going to BC this just to Matt and Ben K., as they both seem to have knowledge of this hike, but I would imagine others on the list might as well.
I'm looking for a little advice regarding a Pemi Loop overnight, that I am considering Columbus Day weekend. I really wanted to do this hike two summers ago. I had a trip planned back in the NE and everything was a go, but sadly a death in the family put the kibosh on it.
The flight is now booked for this October, with the intent being to do an overnight. So I guess the real question is, where can we bivy along the trail? Given it's a holiday weekend, I expect campsites to fill up very early. I also hate to commit to a campsite, given that depending on circumstance we could end up doing more/less mileage.
Is bivying along the Franconia Brook Trail or Osseo Trails as feasible as the map makes it look? I know regulations state that you need to be a 1/4 m. from the Franconia Brook Trail, (which considering we wouldn't start hiking out of Lincoln Woods until 9 pm, I would fairly expect miscalculate to about 100 yrds or so).
The other uncertainity I have is whether there are any opportunities to crash along the Twinway. As near as I can tell, the answer would probably be "yes", but I would love to hear input from those who have hiked the trail.
I should add that I've suggested to my buddy that we simplify things by staying at Galehead Hut a night, but he's even cheaper than I, so I doubt that will fly.
Thanks very much in advance.
