The Last Stop

Writing to you live from Shaw's Lodging in Monson, ME on Sunday morning of the 19th. Spence and I had a great breakfast consisting of eggs, bacon, sausage, french toast, home fries, and orange juice. The catch was you had to give them a number. I started with 2 and he started with 3 and that is what we got: 2 and 3 respectively of everything listed above. Round two was another 2 for me and a 2 for Spence. Now we're packed up and headed down the road to the General Store for some supplemental food for the 100-mile wilderness and off we go. Averaging 27 miles a day we will arrive at the base of Katahdin on Wednesday night and climb the mountain on Thursday. We will post a final write-up, the rest of our Maine photos, and the final trip mileage upon completion of our trip. Signing off for the final time on the trail as we leave the last trail town for all northbound hikers.

My family were neighbors of the Harringtons in Carlyle. His tragic death has left a mark on our lives. We wish you a safe hike and I hope that in your lifetime you experience the effort you put into this hike manifests into something greater than you could have imagined. I hope Steven knew in life how much he meant to you and I wish we could all experience such love. Our best to you. D. Starling
