SEPTEMBER 22, 2004 — GORHAM, MA
Andrew called today from Gorham, NH. Things have been “awesome.” The weather has been perfect and even the nights were fine for him. He hiked the Mahoosuc Range this morning at sunrise and said it was unbelievable. When he hiked the AT in 2002, this stretch was raining and foggy and he missed the beauty. Tonight he has passed through Gorham and is camping at a shelter. He passed the 1,000-mile mark early in the day, just 39 days into his hike. Tomorrow he will go over the Carter and Wildcat Ranges, and the Presidentials (including Mt Washington) on Friday.
Bob and I are meeting Andrew this weekend. We are staying in North Conway and he will be taking a zero day on Saturday. We are looking forward to seeing Andrew, and he is looking forward to our company. He has requested that we bring his computer so he can download some pictures. Check his web site next week.
Total miles hiked so far: 1013
