Having done the AT, do you think there is anything I should expect to be drastically different about the CDT? I am assuming that there isn't quite the same bond between hikers and the trail communities or as many hostels and chances to resupply, but I could be wrong. And as far as difficulty goes, the CDT maps don't appear to be any more difficult than the AT, but what do you think? Would all the same gear be fine too, or is there anything additional you would suggest bringing?
Thanks in advance, you are always so helpful!
