I: WILLIAMSTOWN TO RUTLAND
DAY 1: WILLIAMSTOWN - CONGDON
Day 1: 13.6 miles, sunny/warm. I began my trek just after 09:00, making my way up along the Appalachian Trail to the Massachusetts-Vermont border. I crossed some scenic power lines, a beaver pond, and the aptly-named, viewless, Consultation Peak. I made it into camp at Congdon Shelter around 18:00, where I made dinner and conversed with Rocky, Over the Hill, and another older fellow. As the ambient twilight faded into night, I built my tent and settled into my evening’s entertainment: Andy Weir’s Project Hail Mary.
My tech fared OK today, though my power consumption was higher than anticipated. The GoPro is the worst offender of the day, though my phone discharged to 30% due to unforeseen user error. Not a bad showing today but I am certainly feeling it. Everything aches.
