Trail Notes – August 9 (Gorham, NH – Tactical Retreat)

The Ziptie relaxed today. I wrote some long overdue letters, I watched Spy Game, I lay out in the sun, I napped. A venture out to Wal-Mart was required to purchase a second knee brace and the ingredients for s’mores. 

A campfire tonight was a great treat, sitting around and chatting with other hikers. At this point in time and place, there are equal numbers of northbounders and southbounders, who started from Katahdin. I have serious respect for these people, who are doing the hardest two states before they even have trail legs.

Tomorrow I return to the trail, eager to cover some miles! The middle finger on my right hand is pretty painful – I think I came close to breaking it in a fall, so it is currently taped to the finger next to it until it heals some. I will still be able to grip my poles.

I hike on!
