There's a chance, but it would require a steady (15 mi/day avg) pace,
no major delays, and no early snowstorms on Katahdin.

Perhaps Katahdin is the nicest place to finish but ask yourself,
"Will finishing someplace else ruin the 5 months leading up to it?"

Most thruhikers will be gone by then but I remember two guys
posting that they would be starting the first week of May.
Enjoy hiking without the huge throngs!
