Big day. Not only did I do 11+ miles, but on a day with Mnt Geylock in the middle (highest peak in Mass.) It was a long up hill, and with a full pack from my resupply yesterday...it was a good test. I really could feel the difference in my physical fitness between my first little hill and Greylock and I know I am in much better shape now.

Can't say I liked all the tourists on top, but having a Cheeseburger at Basom Lodge was nice. The view was great, but it was hard getting good photos without people in them. I did get the hero shot on top before the memorial.

Hike to camp over Wilbur Mnt was ok, but again a lot of weekenders and tourists. Weather was also perfect so a lot of people were out.

Much colder tonight than other nights, even had to break of the polarfleece jacket...it's going to be a cold night. Wish I had my sleeping bag.

Good news: I made it to Vermont! Six states in one trip...WOW!

Bad news #1: I booked my plane tickets home...booooooo.

Bad news #2: I blew out my boots! Yep, the pair I picked up in New York blew out during a rather nasty little climb up an unnamed mountain. Ripped right where the upper connects to the sole, by my left little toe. Hope the duct tape holds until I am off the trail (or possibly Manchester Center).

Here with a ton of other people just starting the Long Trail. This wasn't something I was ever warned about, but every tent site is full here and the shelter has people in it as well. There is just me going NoBo and one SoBo and the others are all LT.

Last night was cold, but I stayed warm wearing all my cloths. The hike here was ok. Weather was once again perfect for hiking. I stopped off in North Adams to eat breakfast at Friendly's. The hike out of town along Sherman's Brook was very nice, and got my hero shot when entering the state of Vermont. so other than the boots...a good day.

Woke up early, never really feeling like I slept well at all. Got going, but could tell the humidity was up. The duct tape fix for my boots didn't last long at all. Got to the next shelter around noon and met Lonestar a SoBo. He told me about a place for hikers in the next town as well as a place to buy boots (even though the town has no outfitter). So decided to change my itinerary and stop in. He was right on the money. Got a neat place to stay, new boots and squeezing in a load of laundry (thanks to the attendant who bent the "last load" rule just a bit).

Well the Vortex lived up to its name. Just couldn't seem to get out of there. I think it was almost 11 when I took the bus back to the trail. Got to the first shelter out of town and just moved on. An hour or so latter it rained, but just a brief downpour, but it was over quick (although it did force me to use my raingear for the first time). Got here with the threat of rain once again showing its ugly head. Set up the tent quick, then cooked dinner down at the shelter. Started raining after dinner was done, and has only slowed down once or twice. Made the dash to the tent without getting too wet, but not sure if/when the rain will stop.

New boots did well their first day, no blisters and the feet were dry even with the VT mud and rain.

Much more crowed on the tail now. Shelter full and four tenting. A southbounder said the next shelter (north) was the same way. Guess it will be that way for the rest of the trip. Might have to do with the Long Trail Festival this weekend in Rutland, but I think it is just the AT/LT combined section.
