I am going strong, the group is hanging together and there are about 550
miles to go. We are entering the Green Mts. in Vermont and then into
the Whites in New Hampshire. I am seeing moose tracks, bear tracks,
beaver ponds, and snotty south bound AT thru hikers. I don't know what
it is about them but they seem to have an attitude. Maybe its just
because we are seeing the first wave coming thru SOBO and they are the
ultra fast types. I have met some very cool folks who seem determined
to make it on to Maine. The class is thin now, as you can imagine, and
I am walking with people who are committed to the trail. I went
swimming in Stratton pond today, it was absolutely amazing.
