Sometimes you just end up in the most unlikely of places at the end of the day, and today was one of those days. My first real day with the new backpack, and it was one of those days that just kept evolving. I thought I’d go about 17 miles to the next shelter, but decided to go a little farther to throw the tent down, then a little farther, and a little farther, and…well, you get the idea. So, before I headed off into a long water-less stretch, here I am next to a river with one highway on the other side and Interstate 81 just 50 yards away on this side. I can’t say I’ve had a tent site quite like this one yet. Good thing I remembered my earplugs!
