|Daniel's Steakhouse - our first all you can eat buffet along the trail!|
Our jaunt in town included an obligatory all you can eat buffet, trip to the grocery store, and burgers and beer at a local bar and grill. Here the townsfolk serve newcomers slices of delicious blueberry pie alongside demoralizing bar trivia defeats. Despite the loss, we had a great time. Everyone we've met both in town and on the trail has been extremely kind.
Upon our return to the trail today, we realized that we missed it and were ready to press on. And I personally was reminded that I'm not out here solely to make it to Maine, but to enjoy nature and embrace life at its simplest. Have I become truly enlightened and one with nature yet? No, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
- Guy Line (trail name given for my tendency to trip over the guy lines on the tent. Pretty tough trail name, right? "Don't mess with Guy Line or he'll totally trip on a bunch of stuff. I once saw him trip on like 8 things at the same time with one hand tied behind his back."
PS - Kelly forgot to thank Zach in her last post for the light weight board game.
PSS - We apologize for the poor formatting of our blog posts. We're still getting the hang of blogging from a phone.
PSSS - I hope our readers have seen a Holiday Inn Express commercial before, otherwise the end of my post is going to sound pretty strange.
