Troll's 2010 AT Journal

  1. 19 September 2010

    19 September 2010, Grafton Notch,
    On the drive into Success Pond Road this morning we had a cow moose in the road and it ran the road in front of us for about mile before it jumped off into the woods.

    I have not been looking forward to Mahoosuc Notch. I have done the Notch two times in the past and it is just time consuming and strenuous.

    We started the Mahoosuc Notch today at 9:24 am and finished it at 11:00 am. It took us one hours and 36 minutes. ...

    To come in the future.18 September 2010, East Andover
    I forgot to write this little story in my journal about what happened yesterday.

    When we were all sitting around cooking dinner in the shelter last night Rocket told us about some underwear she was carrying around. She said she had been carrying it for weeks now. She said last time she did laundry with Thin Mint and a few others they all put their laundry together and was it in one load like most hikers do. When the ...

    17 September 2010, Carlo Col Shelter
    Sometime after 9 pm last night four hikers came to the shelter. I did not know who they were at the time because it was dark. They tried to be quite but we all know that is almost impossible in the dark.

    The two hikers that came in around 8:30 last night were Patch and Bluegrass. The second two hikers that came in around 9:00 last night were Eastwind and Loon.

    The rain did come in last night right before we went ...

    16 September 2010, Gentian Pond Shelter
    I slept like a baby last night. The wind died down and I stayed warm.

    This morning it was not to bad getting out of my sleeping bag. The skies were overcast and there was no rain. Hopper made her coffee at 06:00 as usual and climbed back in her sleeping bag to drink it. She has turned into my alarm clock, getting up at around 06:00 every morning. When she gets done with her coffee I am usually getting out of my sleeping bag. It ...

    15 September 2010, Trident Campsite
    I went to the post office this morning and mailed all my food drop boxes along with some other stuff I sent home that I no longer need. We went to The Barn which is a hostel to get some phone numbers off their listing for shuttle providers. The first one I called I got no answer. The next one I called said he would not be able to give us a ride for about 20 minutes and then he asked where we were going. I told him route 2 and his whole demeanor changed ...
