Sunday 8/17 Minerva Hinchey Shelter to Pico Camp 17.1 miles

Good hiking! Humid. Had to do the short scramble to Killington Peak, I
just couldn't miss that one.
I'm here tonite with a Vermont ridgerunner and aspiring thru-hiker
The trail is good... White Blazes...

Wednesday 8/20 Sherburn Pass to Stony Brook Shelter 7.6 miles

Late morning start after visiting with Jan, Phil & Rachel. It was really
good to see them, but
it was not a good time with Jan. Much pain. I was ready to quit and I
asked Jan to bring me
home, but she stuck to our agreement that we had before the hike started
that she wouldn't
get me before Katahdin. The degree to which I miss my family is a
significant issue in the hike
and in my life. In keeping a positive confession - The visit was good...
The trail is good...
