    While it may not work 100% of the time, isn't the Pemi the perfect place to abide by the rule of just following the water downhill and out to safety? Everything that flows in there is going to flow...

    Yes, very helpful on both counts. Last question if you're still with me; is there a sign or marker for the trail or will I have to guess the spot based on the mileage and your description?

    Thanks Lefty. About what I expected based on what I've read last year. I'm not worried about my vehicle, I'm more concerned with time and speed. It's around 5.5 miles so if you can only drive around...

    I see your point regarding safety in redundancy but one could also argue that it triples the chances for something to go wrong.

    I had meant to ask if people here know Pam Bales or know if she ever posts on VFTT. I fear that we have not done justice to her heroic effort on that hike. She has my utmost respect and admiration.
