And why would you want to? According to Slowbus, NB thru hiker with whom 
Cobweb and I had the pleasure of meeting this past weekend while sharing the 
shelter at Garfield Tentsite, "there's NO Walmarts, NO sweet tea, and just 
forget about BBQ".

Resupply in North Clarendon?  Are you mailing yourself a package?  If Oasis 
Sports is closed they leave the packages with the very small and poorly 
stocked General Store located on the same premises.  Hope you like Slim Jims. 
 The Whistle Stop diner is along the way, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, 
plus Ice Cream. Pittsburg loves the place ;-).

North Adams: Rte 2, everything ya need, near the trail, no hitch
Bennington:  Rte 9,everything ya need
