    14 September 2010, Gorham
    I decided on a zero day again today. The weather was the factor more than anything else.

    I sent Bismarck a text today to see where they were at. Shortly after I sent it I was surprised when he responded saying he was 15 miles down the road in Glen. He was trying to get back to the trail head. Hopper offered him a ride so we ran down to pick Bismarck and Bluesky up to bring to the trail head. On the way to get them we pick up two other hikers ...

    13 September 2010, US Route 2
    I stopped at the Pinkham Notch AMC center store and got a new pair of leg gators, mine were in bad shape and all shredded up.

    The day started out overcast. It never cleared up today. Once up into the clouds on Wildcat Mountain the weather could not decide whether it was going to rain or drizzle. It switched between rain and drizzle while going over all five summits of Wildcat. I got pretty wet but stayed warm because of all the climbing and ...

    The weather was bad so I did a nero day. This means it was almost a zero day, a day with very little miles.

    11 September 2010, Mount Washington Auto Road, 11.6
    We went and picked Rocket at her hotel at 07:30 and Gipc Girl was there to send us off. We made a quick stop at McDonald's. I ran into an old geocaching friend in the parking lot at McDonald's. The Old Prospector was just getting into his truck when I approached him. I started asking him questions as to why he was not living in New Mexico. He said he did not like it there and moved back to Lisbon Falls in Maine. While I was talking to ...

    10 September 2010, Gorham
    We took another zero day today because of the weather. It is not real bad here in Gorham but it is overcast and drizzling, I am sure it is real crappy on top of Washington. It is suppose to be real nice tomorrow.

    I had breakfast at one of the local dinners. While waiting for my breakfast I did some calculations and figured that I will most likely summit Katahdin on the 8th or 9th of October or even sooner.

    There is a geocaching ...
