Gorham Day 37 Saturday
I met a thru hiker who did the trail several years ago. He is now working as an AMC caretaker at Kinsman Hut. His name is Dingle and on his off days, he likes to come into town and do trail magic in the form of lifts, slackpacking or food drops. He is really nice and gave me some tips on places to stay and things to do. I will have to visit him at Kinsman if I can. I offered to slackpack me 19 miles but I am not sure I can do that in one day. I will take the lift to the trail head at 7:00 tomorrow and thry for Carter Notch Hut and a work for stay. I waould really like to go to Madison the next day as he says Monday nights are Band Night but that would be a long, hard day.
I have been trying new, or rather other, flavours of Ben+Jerry’s ice cream. The New York Super Fudge Chunk was great. Marsha Marsha Marshmallow was pretty good. Right now I am trying chocolate fudge brownie. It is merely okay. The ice cream is fine but the brownies chunks are dry and more frozen than the ice cream. Basically it is a miss.
