Woke up super late and ate what was left in our food bags before heading out to hike over the few smaller peaks and getting a view of mtn Moosesilauke. We came out of the woods at the bottom of the hill and Miss Janet came rolling up and honked at us. We walked down the road and had a fabulous night at Hikers Welcome Hostel.
Woke up and as the fog rose we got ready to hike over Moosesilauke. We payed our dues and slackpacked with JoCool, Grizz, Day-tripper, Bayroo, and Maverick. As tradition all the guys wore dresses. It was hysterical. We took our time going over and people hated our answer to the most popular question of the day 'why?' 'Because its so easy your grandma can do it!' We had a blast hanging out on top. The steep as down was funny wooden planks nailed into the rock. We got down Moosesilauke and I heard Miss Janets van here to pick us up and got to a hostel. We went to the grocery store and bought food and loaded all back in the van. When we got to the hostel the guy was a little weird but Miss Janet, JoCool, Sloth and I got to work in the kitchen. We made burgers, mashed potatoes, Cole slaw, and green beans. Everyone was full and Turbo was exhausted so we didn't visit very long with everyone before going to bed.
Woke up and packed up a wet tent. The three of us headed up and over a steep mtn before heading down into Lyme, NH. We got a hitch into town really easily and we went to the Italian place for pizza. Our hitch out of town gave us a ride to the ice cream man house. When we pull up a bunch of our friends are there and Bill Ackard was so excited to see us. I told him Happy Birthday and he told me to take my pack off, stay awhile, and poured me a cup of wine. We played croquet and shared our trail stories with Bill. He gave us ice cream and told us that we had given him the BEST birthday he ever had. That's saying something for a 86 year old. Bill is a very hospital host and loves hikers with ever bone in his body. We stayed the night on his porch along with 14 other hikers along the other porches.
Woke up early and said our farewells to Bill and headed up our first real New Hampshire up. It took us a few hours but we made it up and over Smarts. The views were beautiful and the sun finally came out. Pretty exciting when you live outside and you haven't seen sun in 2 days. Then we climbed Mt. Cube which also took us around 2 hours to climb. The mud and rocks mixed with all the rain has created a death recipe. Once we got to the top we ran into Bayroo and we went down the mtn to the stream and stayed the night there. Good thing we stopped early because our tent is still soaked.
Haven't written in a few days because Hanover was pretty awesome. Dartmouth campus was very inviting and many businesses gave us free food such as a bagel, donut, and a slice of pizza. We got showers and laundry at the community center that had a log book. We got Turbos package and hung out at the post office for awhile. We ran into Tomahawk waiting to go sign for the army. We walked around the soccer field to the trail head and everyone id had ever met on the trail was camped. It was like a weird dream where everyone you know is in it. We were within walking distance to everything. We were up until past 12 before pushing our way past the bunches of tents on top of each other to our tent. The next morning we headed to get our free donut and bagel. I found a really cute hippie store. Everything was super expensive. They gave us free insence and we headed for the library where we charged and uploaded. We spent all fay hanging out in town then we packed up ans night hiked to the next shelter with Mavrick, Bayroo and Stardust. We had a fun night at the shelter. Today we hiked the three of us over a few peaks then we decided to take a random blue blaze around a really steep mtn. We lost the trail several times and made a random right and left turn but still ended up on the right path. We made it down to meet back up with the trail around 8. The trail we took ended up being a class 6 highway. You would have had to have a rock crawler to drive up the road. It rained a lot.
