I've spoke with Pine Creek Outfitter and order the guidebook w/topo maps. I can leave my car there while I hike the WRT. I reconsidered hiking on the mainly bike path of the Pine Creek Trail. I'm opting for a down and back on the WRT, starting from the Outfitter's.
The Boss put me down for PTO July 13-17. Anyone wishing to join me is welcome! It's a 4 hour drive to the trail head for me. I plan on arriving before Noon on the 13th and hiking out, and then coming back sometime on the 17th and driving home. Approx. 60 mile round trip.
Thanks for the great info and pics!
