(This blog from yesterday came through this morning.)
A trio of men of a certain age set out on the trail again, today, in Vermont near Quechee Road. We are staying at the Happy Hill Shelter. Happy is a good word to describe our day of hiking. The weather was good – not too hot – not too cold – it sprinkled just a few drops. No real problems — Steve gave Rick a piggyback ride over one tricky creek crossing. There are several thru-hikers at the site — from as far as Phoenix, Quebec and Florida — and one dog. One of the hikers is southbound.
As we sit around the campfire, we leave you all with 2 questions: 1). When you were a kid, did you ever write a blog while sitting around a campfire? 2). Do you have any trail name suggestions for Steve Delaney and Walter Scully?
Tomorrow, we walk 8ish miles, crossing the Connecticut River into New Hampshire and across the Dartmouth campus.
