so's you know...warrghy and i got the place up and running and better than ever over the last month, de-winterized and all that, and it's open for business. the loons are singing on the lake. if you need a room or a shuttle or slack-packing for a section call Dawn at 207-997-3597. we have fuel and random resupply stuff like lipton's, powerbars, etc. and still the famous AYCE shaw's breakfast. you'd have to be a nut to try and ford anything about now but suit yourself. :beer:

Vonfrick,

You folks help Dawn all season or do you get the chance to hike too?

Nice folks.

Ole Man and Navi own the AT Lodge in Millinocket, ME. They have done a fantastic job with the hostel and have a great reputation. They also own the AT Cafe in town. Read about it all here:

Some of them anyway. The "backside" always takes longer to melt out.

somehow, in spite of me trying to get it right, this year's aldha companion still says there's no atm in monson and folks are going to lakeshore bc she takes credit cards (believe me we're trying to get THAT changed at shaw's)

but until then tell your favorite hiker on the trail that...

THERE IS AN ATM IN MONSON!!:argh:

and most folks, once having breakfast at shaw's and having a look about the place, wished they'd stayed there too :biggrin:

so much work, time, love and money has gone into fixing this place up since dawn bought it, i thought some of you who saw it pree-2006 might be curious

I heard rumors that Shaws was for sale last year....apparently untrue.
