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

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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...
