    Kinsman Notch 1800.4

    August 19, 2017 in the United States

    We knew we would have time in the morning until Fabi will arrive so we tried to sleep in until 7 but our inner clock woke us up at the usual time around 6. I've went ahead to the Hikers Welcome Hostel to prepare breakfast and check on the shuttle to the trailhead after Mt Moosilauke.
    There was a breakfast available at the hostel, for just 5$ with pancakes and bacon and eggs but we had so much left that it didn't make sense to buy it. As we were still hungry afterwards, I've checked the platters and got some free pancakes :) We've also resupplied our bodies with coffee. So after another hour Fabi arrived with the rental car to join us until tomorrow. He is a friend from my home area who is in the US mainly for business reasons but also has some recreational time. We got shuttled by "Bag of Tricks" and started to hike up the mountain.
    The first part of it was pretty intense with steep climbs and wet rocks. But it was still nice not to have to lift the whole weight of the backpack up every boulder and we've reached the foggy summit a bit later. Just as we wanted to sit down for lunch it started to clear and we got a beautiful views all over the surrounding area. The way down was pretty easy and chill so we arrived back at the hostel at around 6 and had enough time for a relaxed beer :)
    Then we had some great grilled hot dogs for dinner, a proper meal for hikers. Before it got too late, we headed to the Shelter to set up our camp for the night. Fabi slept in the Shelter while we stayed in our tent. This long day came to an end after we sat around the fireplace, had nice conversations and drank our beers. It was a great day on - and of course off - the trail.

    Hiking on the AT

    August 19, 2017 in the United States

    I got up and went directly on the highway towards northwest. After 2,5 hours I came into the area of the White Mountains National Forest and there I met Jonas and Julia. Joni is a friend from home and Julia his mexican girlfriend. The baggage which I brought was for them and the sister of Julia lives in Wrentham. They are hiking on the Appalachian Trail (AT) since May this year and I was very happy to join them for one day. The AT is the longest hiker only trail in the world ranging from Georgia to Maine on the East coast and crossing 14 states. was the first time I met Julia, so we got to know each other and then we already started on the trail. As we were in a mountain area we had to get on a peak of course: the Mount Moosilauke (nobody knows how to pronounce it). The path was quite steep and slippery as it has rained the day before but we were fast and arrived at the peak (ca. 1400m high) after around 2 hours. The weather was ok, a little bit cloudy but warm. At the top there was fog first but then it got better. We ate something and went down on the other side of the mountain. At the bottom was a hiker hostel behind which we grilled some sausages for Hot Dogs and drank some beers for dinner. Afterwards it was already dark and we hiked to the next shelter which was a mile away. We crawled into the sleeping bags and slept.Read more
