Lessons Learned and some extra photos

Current Location: Hanover NH (Dartmouth College)
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.
