Total Miles: 442.1
NH-VT border: .6 miles
Most recent lessons learned:
- NOBOs don't hang their food (a few even laughed at us)
- DO NOT keep your clothes too close to a fire to dry ( I now have one pair of socks as oppose to 3)
- Indigestion may lead to barfing, weight loss and is possibly caused by not treating water (now under 160lbs)
- New England has the most sporadic weather I've seen anywhere on Earth. Clear skies one minute may cause a hail storm the next.
