Day 146 – Monson, ME

We spent our last zero day hanging out near the Lakeshore Lodge most of the day. We sorted through our resupply and did a few errands, but mostly just hung out and relaxed. The pub was closed, but we were allowed to hang out on their back patio on Lake Hebron and sip some adult beverages. The weather was fantastic.

All in all, it was a very relaxing final zero day. Tomorrow, bright and early, we head into the final stretch of trail. This section is called the 100 miles of wilderness. It is the longest section of trail without any towns or even any real roads. We are planning to hike for 6 days to get to Baxter State Park, the home of Mount Katahdin. So barring any major disasters, we plan to summit Katahdin and finish our hike next Monday morning. I’m not sure if we will have any cell data in the 100 miles, so there may be some radio silence from the blog for a few days. So if there are no updates this week don’t be concerned, either we have no cell coverage (or I decided to try to ride a moose there).
