Weather: Sunny, no rain
Today's Hike: Little Swift River Campsite to Rangely, ME - 4.8 miles
The plan was to hike into town and walk out. Rangely is expensive and Stratton is not. Therefore we would hike to Stratton and take a shower, do laundry etc. However, we arrived at noon and met back up with Billy Hoot and Nutmeg who told us about their blue-blaze trip from hell, and then informed us that they had a room over at the Saddleback Motor Inn and we were welcome to share. So share we did. But first, we ate lunch and started our chores. We met a wonderful trail angel who shuttled us around tow, and even stopped with us for ice cream. Yum :)
Tonight at dinner we met back up with Early Bear and Little Dipper which was a nice surprise. I haven't seen them since before the Whites (Glencliff, NH). Lil' Dipper also needs to summit on the 19th so we will hopefully be seeing alot of them over the rest of the death march to Katadhin.
