Ponytail admiring a bike
There they met Ted and all went out to lunch at the Long Trail Brewery. They all had a great time taking the tour. Doing some sampling of the freshly brewed beers and catching up. After that Jim went home. Very nice of him to come over to see PTD just for lunch.
Also, Ponytail wants to tell Sue & Dick Kenn that he is sorry that he missed them. They stopped by the Inn to try to catch up. Looks like he left about 12:15 to go to lunch. Only missed each other by minutes. He is a fast mover and doesn’t stay for long as you can tell. He will see you in NH.
Ted spent the night at the Inn w/Ponytail. They went to the grocery store so that PTD could re-supply for 3 days to get him to Hanover (where he will meet Jim again). Ted went off and did a little hiking himself. Ponytail didn’t want to go because he wanted to try to re-seal his tent seams so that they would have enough time to dry before he had to pack it back up. They hung out and watched the World Cup Soccer game w/some other thru-hikers, had dinner and called it a night. Those two had a really nice time together. Ted is a really good friend from MA.
Sat – forgot to mention after all the rain all the orange colored newts were out on the trail. PTD says he had to really watch where he was stepping so he wouldn’t squish any.
