    12 States Down, 2 More to Go

    Near the end of Massachusetts (mile 1548) we crossed a road by a small farmhouse that provides an awesome Trail Stand stocked with cold drinks, snacks, and free Wi-Fi.

    A little over halfway through August we made it to Vermont and intersected with The Long Trail. Running the length of the state of Vermont, it is the oldest long-distance trail in the United States.

    During our time in Vermont we took a zero day in Manchester. Manchester is a very hiker friendly spot and a few of us had packages at the local gear shop. We switched to back into some of our winter-wear as fall began to set in. A short push out of Manchester would lead us to the Bromley Mountain Summit where we crashed in the ski patrol hut for the evening.

    After a few incredible weather days on trail we found ourselves in Hanover, New Hampshire, home to Dartmouth University and the start of the last 2 states on this 14 state journey through Appalachia.

    Challenge: Can You Eliminate Single-Use Plastics From a Thru-Hike?

    The first item I was immediately satisfied with (surprising so, I might add) was my switch to an insulated water bottle. Regular water carries also were a treat as the fresh spring water would often still be cold when I reached camp for the evening. Doesn’t hurt to pour a few tall boys into it while leaving a gas station and be the shelter hero at the end of the day either.

    We only meant to stay a night or two but other groups of hikers kept showing up and pulling us back in. From there we caught the train back north, time for more life on the trail.
