Woke up around 8 and hiked through the swamp and saw all kinds of wildlife. The environment has changed a lot over the past two days. Its very open and you can see all around you for awhile. We hurried to the deli but we missed their lunch hours. We grabbed some fruit and headed up the stairway to heaven. It was a short climb but it was very steep and the day walkers were everywhere! We got to the road to Warwick NY and we walked almost all 3 miles into town before a fellow hiker with a van picked us up and gave us a 3 minute ride to the grocery store. We resupplied and we got an email back from the owner of the drive in movies right behind the store. She allowed us to set up our tent up on the hill above all 3 screens and gave us a radio for only 5 dollars. I took a whore bath in the grocery store bathroom and I think I scared some lady and her children by washing my underwear in the sink. Lol they needed to be washed don't judge. I bought some juice and Turbo and I laid in the tent and watched most of Planet of the Apes part of Tammy and I watched Malificent while Turbo watched X-Men. Bravo to Angelina Jolie she did a wonderful job.
9.5 miles (plus 2.9 out of town and 1.5 into town)
Woke up and enjoied where we were and packed up. We went to the grocery store so that we could try to catch a ride back up to the trail with no success we walked all the way out of town and started the section of the trail that Washington labeled on the map as 'challenging'. Turbo was having a bad day with bad news about a sleeping bag. The trail was definately challenging. Big boulder climbs into NY and picking up tons of trash from a group of about 30 kids. The water was mostly dried up and muddy puddles. By the time we made it to the road for Greenwood NJ we were both dehydrated and exhausted. I decided that going into town and getting a room was in our best interest. We tried to hitch again but no luck. We walked 1.5 miles into town and ran into our old group. We got our room in the Linden Motel which has a pool and our room came with a kitchen and couch extra for cheaper than other crappy motels we had stayed in before. I made us a delicious dinner and I fell asleep at 8:00.
