Pennsylvania Appalachian Trail hike October 18-28, 2012

I'm going to be hiking the Appalachian Trail through the southern half of Pennsylvania (115 miles of the 230 total) from the Mason-Dixon Line to Swatara Gap & I-81. Anyone want to tag along? So far, there are two of us from Nashville.

We'll drive over on the 18th and hit the trail on Friday the 19th at Pen Mar County Park in Maryland. Hope to finish at Swatara Gap on Saturday the 27th, then perhaps visit the Gettysburg National Military Park, time allowing. On Sunday the 28th, we have to pick up other hikers who are doing the SNP that same time, also from Nashville. We'll drive back to Nashville on that Sunday.

QUERY: Any advice on the trail, towns, restaurants, places to stay along the trail not to be missed? Also, anybody interested in shuttling us or our vehicle?
