Saturday's weather was kind of warm out but late in the afternoon, I seen that the camper was being loaded. Could this mean we're heading back to Gardner road for more trail clearing adventures??!! It's been a wet summer, so it's been taking us much longer than usual, to clear our portion of the North Country Trail. I do love being out there ya know.
|Late in the afternoon, the humidity was low so Sandy is clearing|
a FS trail just to get to the NCT.
We'd never had to do that before and it's muddy!
|A few hours of whacking, we made it!|
|We just got to the trail and took a break, then I spied a hiker|
coming from the west!
|He was friendly, so I invited him to camp with us tonight.|
|We stayed a bit longer and whacked weeds on the trail.|
|Back at camp, I learned his name was Pete and from Moline IL.|
I love getting to know friendly hikers ya know.
|Sandy checked out his MRE food.|
We had SO MUCH fun getting to know him.
|The next morning we bid our farewells. |
Are we going to see you again Pete? I hope so!
|We got back to the trail which we had whacked out to yesterday|
and found trees across our trail.
|In fact many of them, but today we're just throwing|
the debris off and knocking the weeds down.
|Sandy says we've logged over 100 hours this year.|
Ya, we've been here lots this year.
|We did made it to Darling creek!|
The last time out here, we had got here from the west.
|Late that day, we spied a car pulling in.|
|It's Dean and Bubba! We were so glad they stopped in.|
Bubba is "The Mayor of Mass City", ya know so it was quite an
honor for them to visit us part time residents!
|Oh ya, I really am a lap dog.|
|I love these guys!|
