    04 September 2010, Lakes of the Clouds
    It was extremely windy today. I put on my long john shirt and my hiking shirt over the top of that. I also put on my convertible pants on with the legs attached. With my rain coat on to fight off the wind and off we went. The wind gusts were pretty constant so all I had to do was lean into the wind most of the day. Every once and a while the wind would suddenly stop and catch me off guard and I would lose my balance and start doing a run forward to ...

    03 September 2010, Crawford Notch
    I slept good last night. I was able to sleep through the mouse noises going on over my head. It sounded like they were trying to chew through the wall.

    I woke up not feeling good. My stomach is weasy and I feel very flush in the face. I am finding it hard to even move. I don't know whether it is a bug or something else. The way I feel now I will be lucky to make it the eight miles to the road crossing. I know I will not make it to Mizpah ...

    02 September 2010, Zealand Falls Hut
    The couple in the shelter started moving around at 05:30 this morning. I was pretty much awake at that time, just dozing in and out of sleep. I laid in bed until about 06:30 and got up and ate breakfast and started my daily routine. We only had two very minor mouse incidents last night when a mouse got into the lady's pack. Then this morning the guy told me he had felt a mouse run through his hair in the night. That is one of the reasons I do not sleep ...

    01 September 2010, Garfield Ridge Shelter
    I started out this morning at Liberty Springs trail head parking are, this added an extra 0.8 miles to the day.

    The climb going up Mt Lafayette was not to bad other then it being really hot today. I reached Little Haystack Mountain and I was thinking the next mountain ahead of me was Mt Lafayette only to be disappointed by finding out it was Mt Lincoln. When I got on top of Mt Lincoln I looked ahead to finally see Mt Lafayette. ...

    31 August 2010, Lincoln, 0.0
    We made the quick drive this morning to Glencliff to pick up my hiking clothes I left there. Just before I left Mad Mike called me on my cell phone. He had left Glencliff 20 minutes ago and was driving my way. I told him that we had to head back there to get my hiking clothes. He said he would call me around 10 am again and see where I was so we could hock up. It was great to hear from Mad Mike. I started a Springer with Mad Mike, Geo and Hopper. Mike only ...
