Yo PNTers! Can I ask for your thoughts...
A friend and I are planning to hit the PNT this summer, and the current plan is to complete the thru-hike, one way or another.
I'm aware that July to Sept is generally seen as the season for doing a thru-hike. However - our schedules mean we are thinking of starting the hike in mid-May, and I guess therefore finishing mid-Julyish. I just wanted to ask whether anyone had any views on whether, given the conditions over this period, this was:
a) a realistic aim;
b) realistic but only if we do something different from the standard A -> B route (e.g. flip-flop or suchlike);
c) laughably unrealistic.
I ask this having done very little research myself as yet; I fully intend to. But I thought it was worth asking the question at the outset just in case this was a complete no-hoper! If so we'll perhaps have to scale down the plan.
Any advice much appreciated. And either way hope to see some of out there later this year!
