Sorry, yeah that title is a little hokey but I was tired of hello and hi. Might have to switch the format up altogether. Anyway, I’m sitting on a rock about 4 miles outside of Great Barrington MA and just wanted to give a quick update via phone since we’ll be in CT in a couple of days. I don’t have a lot of time, but it’s ok because honestly there hasn’t been that much to MA besides loads of mosquitoes and humidity. We climbed the highest mountain in the state, Mt.Greylock, but it was so cloudy we couldn’t see anything. So I just took a picture with the plaque.
Not many views otherwise because of the clouds and rain. Really I’ve just been missing home a lot and thinking how nice it will be to get home in the middle of football season. Because nothing sounds as nice in the middle of a hot day on the trail as sitting on the couch all day with a spread of snacks and cold drinks.
Speaking of food, quick shoutout to my two new heroes:
These things are both soooo easy and fast. They just take a lil butter (or a lot), maybe some dates and raisins or vegetable chips in the potatoes and sun dtied tomatoes in the cous cous, and you’ve got yourself a hot brick of hiker filling food. Oh yeah, the taters take some powdered milk but that’s no problem for us trail chefs.
That’s all for now! Keep an eye out for a bigger post from NY sometime next week. Til then,
