It’s really nice to not have to wake up and hike 15-20 miles.
The Long Trail runs from southern VT to Canada. I believe it’s about 300 miles. The first 100 miles or so runs with the AT. Since I’ve already hiked that part, I may as well finish the Long Trail at some point…or maybe not!
Kris was very anxious for me to get the beard sheared off. I was eager but not to her extent. On the drive to Stowe on Monday AM she was looking for an open barber shop in every small town we passed through. Now that I think about it, that was probably a ploy to stop and shop in those small towns.
Stowe has a barber shop and a men’s salon. The barber shop was closed Monday and salon open. I had to explain to her that you don’t grow a masterpiece like this out in the wild and then get it sheared in a salon!
Barber shop was open Tuesday!
Several times during last 1/2 of hike I would show people the “before” pic (on golf course with golf bag and Bud) on website. People had a difficult time grasping the fact that was the real me.
I’m having a difficult time recognizing myself now.
Hoping to find a scale before I gain all that weight back. Guessing I lost about 25-30 lbs.
Have a great day!
