one for the gifts of food and kind words. I think what was waiting for us here in Dalton will tide us over for a good 6 days. Thank you all!

'll be in MA. The states feel like they're starting to fly by. More when I get to Dalton. Love you all.
Sitting in Bennington, VT after a small resupply waiting for a ride back to the trail from a kind fellow who picked us up on the way into town. The last
few days have been big: 17, 17.6, 17.6, 22.9, and today's shaping up to be about 19 miles. Yesterday and today we did 15 by 12:30. A few more days and I

After two days off my legs are aching to go. We leave Hanover this morning and say good bye to Ricker who has been nothing short of amazing to us. The weekend consisted of beer, pizza, whiskey, AYCE brunch, Lou's, lobster, Finding Nemo, hot tub, Ben & Jerry's, reading the newspaper, writing letters, etc. The best part by far, though was reconnecting with an old friend and meeting new ones. Totally rested, recharged and fattened up, it's time to start walking (waddling) again. I hope all is well out there.
Love, Paps.

Sitting here in Hanover at Dirty Cowboy Coffee after a much-longer-than-expected trip through the Whites Mountains. More to come about this, but suffice it to say for now that I could not have asked for better weather for a full week; I availed myself of the opportunity to the fullest extent. Hopefully spending some time with my dad's best friend, Ricker for the weekend- taking the first 'zero' of the hike after 441 miles (>1/5th complete!). In other news: I ran .9 mi in 6:10 around a lake on boardwalks, roots, rocks and mud in my hiking boots immediately after dropping my pack after a 10 mile hike. More Running is in my future. Also, Mt. Moosilauke (last of the Whites) was the last 4,000 footer for 973 miles. I'll post again soon. Off to the Post Office!
