It’s been a little while since my last post yet again. I have 5 or 6 hikes and just as many MYOG posts to catch up on. But hold off on that – priorities please…I’m on my way to hike the Long Trail in Vermont!
The 270+ mile hike from the Massachusetts border on north up to Canada! Here I come. I’m hiking it with Andrea, my old roommate from 70 Washington in Exeter. We independently arrived at the decision to hike the LT in June/July unknown to each other. Our friend Renee connected the hiking dots for us and lo and behold here we go on the trail together. Woo! Psyched.
We gathered all of our food, boxed it up in a most organized fashion, and shipped it off this afternoon. Last minute gear purchases complete at KTP (Kittery Trading Post). Packs packed. Ready for sunshine and rain and mud and tiny tarps, shelters, black flies, ticks, AT through hikers, sore calves, trail yoga, too many Pro Bars, baby food, quaint Vermont towns, burgers, and beer!
Here we come
