Apparently this is the biggest tree on the Appalachian Trail. I personally think they need to remeasure b/c I remember the oak in southern Virginia being much larger.
Neglected to see the sign before drinking straight from the water source. Fortunately, as I write this blog entry days later, I did not get sick.
Made it to the New England part of the trail!
My goal for the day was to find a place to talk to a close friend and watch Game of Thrones, although unfortunately, getting a place in Connecticut would have been very expensive. In Kent, CT the cheapest place a night was $165 and that’s not including the 15% hotel tax (a tax I didn’t know existed until this state). When I got to Kent, I simply stuck around until dark and stealthed camped off not too far from the road, off the trail. I got to talk to my close friend. As for Game of Thrones, I lucked out having service in the area.
Mom: The Coffee Jelly you gave me was on point. Made my next two breakfasts more enjoyable than usual. Thank you for the jelly!
