Full Goose Shelter, ME 9 Miles Hiked Today 1890 of 2167 Miles Hiked Total

Erik at the Maine border It was your basic crappy weather hiking day. We got some views early on, then the clouds moved in. No more views. Then the rains came and it rained all afternoon. This made the footing pretty crappy.

The fun part was how quickly Rob began to sound like a thru-hiker, "These poles have saved me a few times," "Nice view" (said mockingly as we stood on a summit staring into thick clouds), "What is this?" (in reference to the trail doing or going somewhere stupid), and "After awhile it just becomes funny instead of sorry."
