Another beautiful night last night. Guardian left his tent fly off the last two nights and regaled us with reports of how beautiful the full moon was. Buffalo Bobby and I were concerned about a surprise rain during the night which never came. Since we're usually asleep before dark we would have missed it anyway.
We had a good 18+ mile day with perfect weather. It's getting warmer but still pleasant. NJ rocks are still a challenge but soon they'll be NY rocks.
Tonight we're camping on a private farm. The owner let's hikers camp here for free. It's a beautiful spot on an equally beautiful day.
There's a small out building that even ha electric to allow us to recharge electronics so I was, once again, able to call home. Lots happening as usual.
We all had dinner on the porch and retired to our tents for a good rest after today's hike.
Tomorrow we hope to make it to a hostel to clean up and resupply. May be a relatively short day.
Next week we have two opportunities to stop with family and resupply. First in NY at Bear Mountain and then in Connecticut a couple of days later. That may be the last until mid August in Vermont.
Wonder how the Pioneers did it.
Life is good!
