FYI. When I’m naming a mountain the photo is from that mountain not of it.
The hike definitely got easier today as I went. And I’m hearing there is a mix ahead. I plan to make good time in the easy ones. Actually I’m hoping to do a minimum of fifteen miles tomorrow. If I can go further I’ll be in Maine tomorrow. For sure by the next day. That’ll feel good.
As I hike I’m thankful for everyday there’s no rain and dry rocks. The trail is still hard but wet rocks take it to another level.
I did my resupply today. I got my Amazon order of Mountain House dehydrated meals, Clif Bars and Natures Valley Protein bars. The hostel I’m staying at provides a shuttle to Walmart about five miles away. I bought some tortillas, peanut butter and honey and Snickers for my lunches. I also bought some craft beer,Jarlesburg cheese, Tostitos and salsa for consumption this evening.
This hostel is $35. You get a bunk, laundry, shower, town shuttle and all you can eat breakfast. It’s right on the trail so it’s a good deal. No hitchhiking. I’m sure my kids like hearing that.
I’m excited about getting to Maine. I feel like I got into some challenging times and a bit of a funk in New Hampshire.
