Hi! I love your site and find it very helpful.
I am considering hiking the entire trail solo sometime next year. Needless to say, my wife and kids think I am semi-nuts. I have a few questions.
First off, is their a sister-site to this having to do with hiking the trail?
Second, I am planning on camping about half of the nights on the trail. The other half I will be able to sleep at home or will try to grab a B&B or hotel. If I get into an area without a campground within the walking distance of a sore-footed 42 year old, how feasible is it to just camp by the side of the trail? I intend to stop in the various towns at night, but some evidently don't have a camping area or I might not always be ready to stop for the day. Ha! Does anyone have any insight on this?
