After missing last year due to the new shop buildout, Just Mike and I are heading off for the middle third of the Long Trail on Friday. Eight glorious days of walking and hammocking from Rutland to Jonesville, just past Camel's Hump. I'll be rigging the WBBB one last time this afternoon to test things out, and Mike's traded his HH for a WBBB as well. Just weighed in--my pack is 20 pounds without food and water, so I expect to come in at 25-27 fully loaded, and we'll be eating well. Bringing chocolate, of course! It's raining today, but next week's weather in the Green Mountains is supposed to be sunny and pleasant.
