    Catching the Train Into NYC

    July ended and August began in a brand new state, New Jersey. The Morning of August 1st started off with an awesome view at Sunfish Pond. A few days of trail rolled by and during a short road walk between Unionville and Warwick, NY I saw this creepy character painted in the window of a nearby barn.

    Later that afternoon I would reach the long awaited destination of the Warwick Drive-in Theater. They allow hikers to campout on the lawn behind the main theater parking and supply us with radios to catch the double feature of the night. After a total hiker trash zero day at the Drive in I hiked another 15 or so miles to where I’d catch the train into NYC (my first time ever seeing the city). We caught some late night Jazz in Astoria had tons of pizza spent an afternoon in Central Park and the took the Sky Tram to Roosevelt Island followed by a ferry ride to Brooklyn with excellent views of the City.

    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.

    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...

    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.
