Aug 18; Sun; Day 150

Had trouble sleeping last night. Worrying about the lodging situation for tonight. Got up @ 4:18 & started hiking @ 5:11.

We had a good distance to hike before we got to the signup board. The guidebook said that there were 16 slots. What we heard from other hikers was there were only 12 slots.

I hit Hurd Lean-to @ 8:38. I didn't stop. I hit the Abol Bridge Store @ 10:06. Mack was there. 2-Speed had walked the mile to tge signup board to see of there were any other slots for the night. She came back & said there weren't. She said that they were filked up @ 6:30 that morning. We didn't have many options. The park's camping spots were usually full at Katahdin Springs Camground. We tried to call Millinocket to see if we could get a shuttle ride there so we could stay @ the hostel. None of us could get a signal. The phone @ the store also didn't work. Bummer. So, we left & hiked the rest of the way to the park.

When we got there, we were able to get a campsite w/ some other hikers. Cool. Our 21.2m hike ended @ 2:42.
