Three Hours after School...

While most of my fellow classmates went to their homes or spend time with their friends to relax from finals and celebrate summer I crammed in three hours of final planning for the trip. We left at about 2:00 p.m. and arrived in Williamstown at about 6:30. After 15 minutes of checking my equipment over and saying my last goodbyes to my mother I started up the trail. It was pretty straight-forward, not too difficult of a climb to kickoff the trip. I passed by King Arthur who had just resupplied in Williamstown and was northbound on the AT. He stayed at Sherman Brook Tentsite and I ended up seeing him a couple days later.

I arrived at Seth Warner at about 9:30 p.m. and saw the surrounding bear bags strung up in the air. I simply tossed my food bag a couple feet away from the tent entrance and decided that it would do. When I was lying in my sleeping bag it was the first time that I realized how hard I worked so that I could make all of this happen and that it had been only 10 hours since I had been sitting in my english class making sure that every answer to every question was spot-on.
