My first full day in my 13th state! All I can say is: "New Hampshire? Bring it." Hiked one last big day alongside Camel–perhaps my last 20-miler of the trail! Tired legs today after last night’s late arrival, and the trail turned pretty dramatically more diificult with several rugged and steep ups and downs.
We met up with Chris this afternoon, who I haven’t seen since Virginia and it was great to have such an unexpected reunion. All three of us hiked to the road where we were picked up by a friend of our long lost thru-hiker pal Leki-less and were taken to his family’s nearby home for a night in a bed, laundry, and a shower. Really exhausted tonight, but glad to be here in such hospitality with good friends, long days behind me, and shorter days ahead.
