It’s mid-July and it’s hot and humid. My clothes get sweaty as I climb over and over. When I get to camp it’s too humid and they stay damp and sticky. Sometimes they dry a little, but many times I go to sleep in wet, moist clothes. Uncomfortable – yes. Today it’s a little cooler, but then it rained. So I still got wet. Luckily I’m in Dalton MA and got a motel room. With it I did my laundry and took a shower. You can’t believe how much better I feel afterwards. I also did a small resupply, because I’ll be climbing Mt. Greylock (2500′) and don’t need to be carrying too much food.
I’ve left PA and I’m now in NJ. Let’s hope the trail has less rocks now.
