After a few lazy months getting out of shape, and then doing a 15 mile day on the AT, I was happy to see our first shelter. It was more than being done for the day that made it a great sight to see. I realized just how much I missed the feel and smell of an AT shelter. I feel even more at home here than I do back home in Indiana. It was a cold night though. We hitched into Bennington, VT today where I picked up a $4 fleece jacket at Goodwill. It looks like it will warm up a bit soon.
