A very hot, very humid day and I was nowhere near 100%. I felt tired and overheated all day despite lots of great trail magic, including many jugs of water. I resisted the pull of the hostel in Vernon even on such a tough, long day after a good long break with ice cream and cookies at Heaven Hill Farm just a few hundred yards off the trail at an afternoon road crossing. It’s great to be with my buddy Footloose for another night even though the mosquitoes are now eating the flesh from my bones. New Jersey has definitely signalled the beginning of bug season!
