He arrived at the Ferry (a manned canoe that will take you across the Kennebec River). The ferry only runs 4 hrs a day 9-11 and then 2-4 and it only holds 2 people plus the guide. So, you must be there between those times to get a ride or you must wait till the next day. PTD says he arrived early and didn’t need to wait long for a ride.
Kennebec River – (means long quiet water in Indian). This river has strong currents and has very unpredictable water levels due to the releases from the dams upstream. They strongly urge hikers to use the ferry. Ponytail followed a rule! Can you believe it?
Says it was a nice sunny, breezy day. Once over the river, he put the pack on and got a move on. He had some miles to travel. He was at Pleasant Pond Mountain by 2pm.
Went over Moxi Bald and had some nice views but the mountain was too low to see Kathadin. It started to rain on and off as they had predicted late in the afternoon.
He arrived at Moxi Bald Shelter along w/Moose & Tetherball where they will spend the night.
