So…we left our camera in the ferry gong across the Kennebec River and found out it was in Stratton, ME. So…of course we had to call and catch a ride into the hostel…and shower…and get some beers….and not walk…lol.
So, we’re having a lot of fun on the trail. We’ve met a lot of folks who are a lot of fun. Tonight we’re staying at the hostel here in town with Murphy (a guy with two prosthetic legs) and his two friends Emily and Whiskers. They have been leaving funny posts in the trail registers so we were looking forward to meeting them. Most folks heading Sobo are just a day or two ahead of us which is really nice because we have the shelters mostly to ourselves. We have met some really funny characters out here…
We have particularly been missing our friends Shasta and Billie Goat who we hiked through the 100 mile wilderness…we also miss Red Beard…who sadly got off the trail in Monson because he was just section hiking. We hope Shasta and BG catch up. Violet (aka snowball) misses them.
Greg suggested I tell you guys some of the funny stories I related to him on the phone. Its hard to type those stories when you can’t do the voices, however. So…call me and ask about the impression I do of the impression of the military guy that Fiesta does…lol…if that makes sense.
Anyway…we love you all and miss you. We’ll get pictures posted as soon as we can.
