Looks like, when I the guidebook arrives, I'll really have to plan this out. I want to maximize the vista's and trail, but don't want to break any regulations on camping or what not.
The folks at the outfitter said I did not need a permit unless I stayed at a campsite more than one day. Not planning on doing that, just need a better understanding of "campsite." I'm used to just stopping along the AT where ever I feel, with note to few restrictions near towns and all. The guidebook will inform me of all this, I'm sure.
