10.4 miles today. This catches me up. I’ll have a new post tomorrow morning and also post some pictures I missed previously.
The day started with two huge climbs. Man, this is tough. I’m definitely feeling my age. One climb was eight tenths of a mile that took me an hour and twenty minutes.
These posts are behind now because of a lack of cell service. Plus the service is so weak uploading photos has been challenging. When I get good service I’ll send several days worth of pictures.
I went in and inquired about their work for stay. I’ve read and heard that was available to through hikers. After their guests were done eating I and the cooks got to eat the leftover enchiladas. My work was to clean the freezer with bleach water and sweep the kitchen floor. That took about an hour. Now I get to bed down on the dining room floor.
Tomorrow after I do eight miles I’m going to the AMC Highland Center. It’s run by the nonprofit Appalachian Mountain Club. I have a new pair of shoes being shipped there and they have a bunk house and showers.
This granite in New Hampshire has worn the tread down on this pair after 400 miles. I have 350 miles left so this should be my last pair.
I’m really missing Amy, family and home in general. I’m a little unhappy about being slowed down by the difficulty. The views are awesome though. And I know I have to finish or I’ll always be drawn back.
