I second this...after having thru-hiked last year with Wingfoot's book, I'd
probably take the Thru-hiker's companion as what I saw of it I liked more.
Either way, you take your chances with some places being better than in the
guide books and some being alot worse. I heard a couple of horror stories
of people (hostel/motel owners) of dealing with Wingfoot (sorry Wingfoot,
but I'm just stating what I exerienced)...
