Appalachian Trail Map

Resupply

Lots of wind last night, then it stopped and rain started, then it got cold. All the clothes I had hung out to dry, weren't placed far enough back in the shelter, so they got misted and I started with damp clothes again. At least it was just rain water and not sweat. Onagain was the hiker who came in late, and we had a good conversation last night and again in the morning. He got his name because he got knocked off the trail a couple of times with injuries, and now he's on again. Still rocky and roots today, but it was only 3 miles into town for a hotel, shower, resupply, laundry, and food we didn't have to carry. Donna and her mother are up for the week and brought our resupply and clean town clothes. Clean town clothes means we don't have to wear our rain gear in the laundromat. We've got food for the rest of the week and a big climb in the morning, which won't be fun. But it will be our last day in Massachusetts. Even though we can only claim 3 miles today, we walked another 5 miles in town.

As we were walking in to Williamstown today, we passed a school and one of the teachers opened a window and yelled "excuse me". She asked where we were from and where we were going. Her class was studying the AT and she saw the opportunity for some real hiker info.
