1 bear in a tree
6 birds eating frogs
Woke up right before everyone started stirring around and then laid and listened to everyone while I tried to continue to sleep. We ate breakfast in our sleeping bags and then went over a little peak into town. We got coffee and a bagel. Can't beat that with a stick in the north. We heard "yall" today and were taken aback. Its been a long time since we heard it. Damn SOBOs from the South? What? We headed out of town and did a huge mtn before heading into Cheshire, MA and eating rainbow sherbert and ham sandwich. We then did a huge climb and stopped at the shelter right before a rain storm started.
woke up late after enjoying a night of listening to the rain without getting wet. We packed up and headed over Greylock summit and a few little ones after it. We headed at a steep angle into Williamstown MA. We grabbed some snacks at the atop n shop. We got to the Hojo and checked in. We cleaned up and laid in bed. Hopefully. thepackage will be here tomorrow:)
Laid around the motel room all day. I woke up with poison ivy on my chin and my lymph node swollen under chin just like last august. Im dumbfounded by how this keeps happening. We ate Mexican down the street but it wasn't the same kind of Mexican ad at home. They actually had cheese dip but it was mixed with spinach, onions, tomatoes, and peppers. It was extremely good. Plus our tacos were bigger than our plates. We watched mythbusters and I fell asleep early.
Woke up and showered again. Washed my underwear and extra pair of socks in the sink and packed up. My socks have finally gotten a hole in them. Maybe the next outfitter will have socks and I can trade them in. We got out of town pretty quickly thanks to mom sending me food I only had to grab a few things to eat for breakfast. After we hiked up the ridge we took a break by a water source and ate lunch. We headed to the shelter and ate dinner. Meeting a lot of southbounders lately. Counted probably 16 now. Climbed into bed early, im excited to be in Vermont now! 3 states left.
1 small garden snake
had a bad night of sleep in the shelter because the guy under us got up at 5 and that meant nit going back to sleep. Everyone usually wakes up around 6 now. We got to moving late but we blasted uphill for most of the day. We took lots of breaks and saw a lot of sobos and nobo long trail thru hikers. We stopped at Kid Gore Shelter for the night. We met a group of sectioners and a crazy old nobo.
1 orange gecko
We had a great nights sleep and woke up to the beautiful view. We packed up quickly and headed for our first good climb in VT. We hiked over Staton mtn in the mid afternoon and found a nice campsite next to a river. We joked around and ate dinner before turning in early. While we ate dinner we watched chipmunks play and one came really close to us. Probably 2 feet from us and stopped and stared for a few seconds before abruptly diving into a hole that Turbo nor I realized was there before then.
