We woke up early and ate breakfast before heading to Monson. Once we got to Monson we ate dinner at the hostel and decided to get a room there before heading into the 100 miles wilderness. A large group of our friends were there also but no one wanted to pay for the bucket drop half way through the wilderness.
We woke up early and resupplied at the Pie ladys store. We also got to eat grits for breakfast. We packed out packs full with 7 days worth of food. The couple that picked us up was from Augusta area and were in Monson to find a moose. We had to do our first ford and the water came up to my midthigh and the water was super cold. On the other side of the river there was a moose carcass. We stopped at a dirt rd and camped with our friends.
