    Greenwall Shelter 1675.3

    August 11, 2017 in the United States

    At night we were surprised by a thunderstorm moving next to us. We barely got hit by the rain but there was still water in the tent. We really need to get this fixed otherwise we can only stay in the shelters...
    Nevertheless we had a gorgeous view in the morning over the valleys surrounding us. The hike was more challenging than we were used to from the previous days as it was more steep. But we kept a pretty good pace and were later rewarded with a nice view over the pond. At the Shelter (which was 0.3 off the trail!!) we met "Parks" and "Drop bear", thru hikers from 2015 that are making the Long Trail. They are having a hikers meeting from the tramily back then afterwards in Maine.Read more

  • Day103

    Camping Quimby Mountain 1707.5

    August 13, 2017 in the United States

    Rise and shine, it's town day :) The night was pretty chilly up at 3908 ft with the wind blowing through the shelter even though it had a door, but no windows -.- So we quickly ate our last remaining two oatmeals and then hiked swiftly the ~6 miles to the road crossing that leads to Rutland. Usually we wouldn't go to a town that is more than 8 miles off the trail but we've heard that hitching a ride is really easy in Vermont. And so we had a car stopping for us after only 5 minutes :)
    They drove us directly to the "Hikers Hostel at the Yellow Deli", which was actually very yellow. We were greeted by a young man that showed us around and told us the rules. Both the Deli and the Hostel are run by the "Twelve tribes", a Christian alternative community which was co-founded by hikers. They are really nice people and we had very interesting conversations with them. The hostel is purely donations based, so showers, laundry and even breakfast is included. But we had other plans, so after having a shower and done laundry we went for brunch to the Deli and had a delicious sandwich there. Afterwards resupply at Walmart, there we got a good amount of food and also a new water filter - not the Sawyer Mini but the regular sized one. Which means that there's no more a need to save water until the next spring :)
    Back in the hostel we were about to get vortexed but the last bus was about to leave, so we hopped on back to the trail and managed to do some more miles.

    Cooper Lodge Shelter 1694.5

    August 12, 2017 in the United States

    In the morning we continued our nice conversation from the previous evening and it took us a while to get back on the trail. Lizard king, a SOBO thru hiker, had some good advice about the upcoming sections. The day continued to be tough and we hiked slow until late in the afternoon.
    Then we hit the sign that it's 500 miles to Kathadin. Just in time for another anniversary, day 100 on the trail. But the celebration has to wait until tomorrow because we're almost completely out of food. Just some oatmeals for tomorrow morning, olive oil and crushed red pepper :(
    For the last bit of the day we saved us a 2000 ft uphill hike to a ski resort. It has limited times in the summer so we were way to late for a snack at the restaurant. It's already our second night in a shelter as it is supposed to be raining heavily tonight and we don't want to risk it with our tent...

    Inn at the Long Trail

    September 29, 2016 in the United States

    It's an oasis. I haven't been off the trail for a couple of weeks, since the B&B in Jeffersonville, and a quick resupply stop in Waitsfield. I pushed longer daily miles and got here a day ahead of schedule. Glad I did. Lots of good food that I needed, and a good rest. Nick is on his way. I'll see him in a few hours. Ken and Muriel also. First thing even before a shower... Beer, Irish whiskey, and Guinness Stew.Read more

  • Day19

    David Logan Shelter

    September 28, 2016 in the United States

    Just passing through with an overnight stay. Lot of confusion about the distance to the Inn, but it is now apparent it will be a 14 mile day. The terrain has eased up a lot, so it shouldn't be that bad. Killington is after the Inn, so I'll be able to climb that with Nick, yet again. We've climbed it many times on Spartan Races. Looking forward to a beer, then maybe a shower right after. Priorities.Read more

    governor clement shelter

    October 1, 2016 in the United States

    Spent the night here and it was awesome, great shelter. It got super windy and rained hard over night so we were very happy to be in here. Heading out around 9am hoping to get a solid 11 miles in but it's very wet out so we shall see.

  • Day21

    Killington Peak

    September 30, 2016 in the United States

    Nick and I were on the top of Killington at around noon. Real easy climb. We heard a humming noise coming from behind the woods a bit downhill. We checked it out to find the K1 gondola running. I guess it is for the mountain bikers. We hopped on for a spin. The top of Killington is loaded with antennas. View was OK. I was well rested from my zero day (no miles) at the Inn. Ken and Muriel showed up at around 5pm, and we took a ride into Rutland to pick up some food we need to get us to Manchester. Back at the Inn we had dinner (Ken paid, thanks), and finished it off with a nice Irish Whiskey. Had breakfast, and we were hiking at around 9am. Short day...10 miles, and easy.Read more

  • Day22

    Airport Lookout

    October 1, 2016 in the United States

    No cell service for a while, so a little catch up. We stayed at Governor Clement Shelter last night. It rained all night, but stopped in time for us to hike. Nick and I are doing a 15 miler today, because we feel like it. Generally easy terrain.

  • Day23

    Greenwall Shelter

    October 2, 2016 in the United States

    Nick and I got 15 done yesterday, and landed here. Some ups and downs, and the last mile was straight up. We got into tractor mode and finished the day. Only 10 today with interesting sights. The sun just started to come out.

  • Day23

    Lost Pond Shelter

    October 2, 2016 in the United States

    I know, just another shelter. They all look the same down south. This one has the notoriety of being at mile 201. I just past 200 a mile back. We got here just as the light rain started. Not cold at all. Getting extra rest, because there will be some climbing tomorrow. We go to the top of Bromley Mountain. Hope we get some views.
