Long Trail Info/Sierra Club Trips

     Thanks for the info of the Long Trail, Mike & Tellydude. 
     Good timing. I have been thinking that doing a fairly good section of 
     the Long Trail this summer/fall would be a good shake-down for a AT 
     Thru Hike next year. I have always wanted to explore the LT. Any 
     suggestions on a good 10-14 day stretch? Also, are there any places on 
     the LT that do not allow dogs, or that it would be advisable not to 
     have a dog? How long does the whole thing take?
     On another note, has anyone done any of the backpacking trips 
     sponsored by the Sierra Club? They have a couple of great ones set up 
     for this summer, and one in the Virgin Islands in December...but I 
     have always been skeptical of big group trips. Any thoughts?
