Appalachian Trail Hikers at the shelter

Trash Days

Reading carefully how to deal with black bears, cooking stove, experiencing the last slightly below freezing temperature. A hikers hostel sent a bus to fetch us out of the woods during a bad forecast. 

It was fun. There was not enough space in the hostel, and I stayed together with these guys. Two days. Or three?

 Below is my receipt from a local bar, I came next day to figured out my payment.
