Last state . 1902 miles done , 282 left. today was the first day I needed to stow my trekking poles, climbs required my full attention. Tomorrow's hike in mahoosuc notch is described by AWOL as Most difficult. or fun on the A.T. I met a north bounder who had dislocated his shoulder in the noch, came back down to gorham to heal. One of every 3 southbounders have some abrasion to their legs , some scratches from thorns. But mostly from rocks,
FUN! FUN! FUN!
