Ohmygod, ohmygod, ohmygod. For the second time, a random decision has turned into Trail serendipity. Hostel of Maine… ohmygod. The place is beautiful and amazing, the owners are FABULOUS, and their resupply is outstanding. Best in-hostel resupply I’ve ever seen. They even have cheese. And tuna in oil!
I’d decided to zero here because I thought I’d have to walk into town to find a market. But I won’t. So I get to sleep and eat, which is awesome, because I really need it. Really. I’m trying to squeeze out enough energy to finish this beast of a hike.
North Crocker was nice—not nearly as tough as South Crocker. The gentle 5 miles down to town, though, were hard, just because I’m pretty spent. Running on fumes. Every mile feels like 5280 feet. But one day at a time, yo.
I love this place. I’ll be here tonight and tomorrow night. Mostly eating Ben and Jerry’s.
Oh, and I almost forgot: 2000 MILES! That gives me 5000 long-distance miles. I’m a baby in the long-distance community, but man, am I proud of that number. 🙂 Thank you so much to everybody who’s supported me in this crazy hobby, especially my sister and brother!
