Woke up early to go to breakfast before we had to get the back to the bus to DWG. Ate and then took the subway one last time to the Port authority bus terminal. Found our bus only thanks to a nice homeless guy who guided us through the complicated complex to the bus for a few dollars of course but at least he was honest. Rode the hour and a quarter back to DWG and walked to the gas station for powerade then hit the road to the trail. Got a good 7 miles in 2 hours and rested then on to the Mohican outdoor center for snacks and more powerade! Got my darn toughs traded in for a new pair with a sweet design! Walked 3 more miles to a campsite with water and ate dinner. Goodnight

Woke up and were hiking by 9:15 got to a side trail for a lake and walked it to a nice spot by a pristine lake with tons of sunfish and baby catfish and huge bull frog tadpoles. Jumped I'm and then relaxed while we ate lunch. Then to a new shelter for water and on to Culver Gap at US 206 for dinner. Went to a steakhouse and we split chicken fingers, a baked potato and the soup of the day. In the process we met a nice older gentleman who had done various hiking ventures and actually donated all of the bear boxes for the shelters in New Jersey. Hiked 3 more miles after dinner to Gren Anderson shelter which is named after a relative of the gentleman we met. A good day with good stops!
