    Onwards to Central Vermont

    September 8, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    In the morning, Bob made some eggs, shredded root vegetables, and spinach and arugula salad. Good way to start the day, thanks Bob! Then I lent Anderson a hand with leak testing the plumbing we had installed the day before. After fixing a few leaks, the pump primed and pressurized the lines. The water supply system was working and the wiring mostly done. Next step I'm bummed to miss is the spray foam, cooool. I know it doesn't take much.

    After a good mornings worth of work it was time for lunch! Kate made puffed pastry stuffed with sauteed onions and red pepper.... Yeah and she made the pastry from scratch! Shortly after lunch I helped Lane and Bob put up some flashing on the other house that was being worked on. An intense finger work out.

    Then it was time to leave some more wonderful people behind. I'm constantly asking myself if this is the right choice. Despite the difficulty I'm still ready to find out via trial, and hopefully not error.

    The next stop put me in Plainfield VT, with Karl and Mary! It was also a good time to test my mileage capacity. On the way to Plainfield I ran out of gas in my main fuel tank, and switched to the tank reserve. The reserve I think is about a half gallon, which should get me close to 25 miles. I hit the reserve fuel at 184 miles, which is good but I was hoping for closer to 200 miles. After switching to the reserve, I arrived at the Bissex homestead at about 200 miles on the entire tank.

    Every stop I've made along the way has been fantastic with different settings and small groups of friends. This visit was no different. Upon arrival, after going through the end of the day routine, I joined Mary Judy and Karl to dismantle and prepare basil for some delicious pesto that covered the pasta dinner. Fresh tomatoes, carrots, and some warmed bread on the side and that makes a damn fine meal.

    After dinner Karl and Mary and I went outside to look at an amazing sky. The stars were bright despite the moon, and we saw several shooting stars. The most I've seen this summer. Post star gazing I found myself in a hot tub. A great way to begin a really long time riding a motorcycle. I think I'll book end the trip with a hot tub at the other end.

    The pictures below are as follows: The view out of the back yard just before I left. The sunset the night before. An extremely large batch of primo pesto for pasta. A presto action shot!

    Mt Ethan Allen

    September 22, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    I'm over the Hump. I stayed at Montclair Shelter about 1.5 miles down the Trail. Place was like a fortress. They had a lot of bear problems last year. Not so now. My day started later as I only have 8 miles to hike to the next shelter. From the shelter I climbed a mile straight up to the top of Ethan Allen, where I sit now looking at this view. I can slow down, because I'm right on schedule and the terrain will mellow out.Read more

    Top of the Hump

    September 21, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Finally made it. Wasn't real steep, just long. The downhill is supposed to be harder. Perfect day to be up here. I can see Madison where I came from and Ethan Allen where I will be tomorrow. I'm stopping at the next shelter 1.5 miles away to slow down a bit. Can't tell from the small pictures. I think that is Madison out there.Read more

    Eiskalt erwischt.... Ben&Jerry

    October 10, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

    Erstmal Frühstück bei "Alfred's First Bakery" und Kurzbesuch in der Church Street von Burlington. Ausgestattet mit passendem Accessoire für unser Tagesziel, den Mount Washington, sind wir erstmal zu Ben&Jerry. Eigentlich war der Plan eine Führung mitzumachen, oder ein Eis mit mal völlig anderer Geschmacksrichtung zu probieren. Aber auch da sind wir auf viele, viele, viele mit der gleichen Idee gestoßen: Wartezeit bis zur Führung 1Stunde (die Führung dauert 30Minuten und zeigt u.a. eine Film...). Die Schlange vor der Eistheke ist mindestens 30min lang. Dann lieber direkt weiter in die White Mountains.Read more

    Ben and Jerry's factory tour

    September 24, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    While in Vermont, you must visit the famous ice cream factory. I went on the tour and I was not even close to impressed. They had a few cute cow jokes, but paying to watch a movie, then see the factory machines that were down for maintenance and finally getting my free sample of Orange cream, it just wasn't worth it to me. Especially posting for that flavor. Yucky! I had to throw it out. Ice cream that doesn't have chocolate! The only part that was really cute was the ice cream graveyard behind the factory.Read more

  • Day14


    September 23, 2016 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 12 °C

    Rained a lot from 2am until 8 or so. Sounded worse in that cabin because of the metal roof. I was dry and warm, so I didn't care. I packed and left for town at around 8:30. It was only 2.5 miles to Route 17, but slippery. I had nice slow hike in the light rain. Hitchhiked into town, second car. Easy up here in northern VT. Eating a big breakfast now, and will be back on the trail within the next couple of hours. Got enough food to get me to the Inn at the Long Trail, 6 days away? Nick meets me there for 4 days of hiking.Read more
