Day 157 Monson, ME Zero Day, 2075.3 miles total
Staying at Shaw’s Hiker Hostel in Monson. They have the main house and 2 bunkhouses. Also allow tents in yard. Must be at least 30 hikers here.
They serve a great breakfast in AM. 3 eggs, potatoes, bacon, and unlimited blueberry pancakes.
Got supplies for 6-day trek through 100 Mile Wilderness. Tortillas, peanut butter, tuna, beef jerky, trail mix, and a bunch of candy bars will be my diet for next 6 days.
Food drop thing isn’t like I envisioned. You pay $80 and they meet you at a road crossing in Wilderness at a specific date/time. Decided not to do it. Good thing about food is that what you carry gets lighter each day. Only problem is you end up carrying a lot of trash.
I don’t expect much communication service for next several days. Blog delivery will be random at best. I’ll be stretching to keep phone charged for 6 days as well.
