Appalachian Trail 2003 -
Entry #118 - August 17, 2003
8:05 PM - A great day of hiking. A beautiful
sunrise on Bromley Mtn, good weather with a cool breeze, nice views
and pretty easy terrain. Did about 22 miles today. Surprising,
cause I never expected we'd be doing 20's in Vermont! Looks like
there's some harder stuff coming up though.
We're tenting @ Greenwall Shelter. Just as we
finished dinner, it started raining. No storm, though, so that's
good. If we'd have known it was going to rain though we'd have
stayed in the shelter. Instead we're crammed into our 1.5 person
tent. Plus we had tacos for dinner, with hot peppers!! Should be
a restless night - Oy!! Into Wallingford tomorrow for a mail drop.

Preparing to Hike
the Appalachian Trail?
Commonly used guides by A.T. thru-hikers
include the Appalachian
Trail Guides (published by the Appalachian Trail
Conference), the Appalachian
Trail Thru-Hiker's Companion, and the Appalachian
Trail Data Book. The guide series includes a guide
for each section, along with a series of trail maps. The
Thru-Hiker's Companion has helpful info on towns, shelters,
and water. The Data Book has basic distance info for road
crossings, shelters, and other features. All are excellent
tools for use during a long distance hike.
