House Hopping

hiked today: 22.1
hiked total: 1622.6

we woke up this morning to a stupid child pretending to be a cop and saying we had to step out of the tent. Needless to say, we are not idiots and didnt, but they woke us up 10 minutes before my alarm went off, so I wasn't happy.

We got packed and went back to the diner for breakfast. We ate, and then began our hike. It was a nice day, the weather was warm and sunny for the most part. It's nice being in Vermont because we have big mountains around us again. It will make for smaller mile days, but at least its pretty -- and different.

When we got to the spot where we were going to stop, we pulled out the tent and used it as a sheet to lay on while we waited for Odie to come and pick us up. He is a thru-hiker from 2005 and has been putting up hikers at his place since. We got his name from Rob, so really, we have just been house hopping for the past week. It's been a lot of fun. After relaxing and basking in the sun, Odie made it to that spot and we had some beers, played some frisbee, and the headed back to his place to relax. We actually went out to a bar around 11:30, but we were both so tired we had to get back and go to sleep. So we went to bed, and will figure out what we are doing tomorrow.... tomorrow.
