Trip Report: We were up at 7:30AM to hike about 7-8 miles to Lafayette Campground today and stopped at the Kinsman Shelter for a lunch break and spoke with the AMC caretaker who Russ met in '93. From there, we moved on to Lonesome Lake Hut for some soup and lemonade and then hiked the final mile to the campground by 3PM. A section hiker needed a ride back to Kinsman Notch and we crowded in the car and shuttled back to find a bunch of cars broken into in the parking area. This included Russ's vehicle and also the section hiker's truck. Bummer! There was glass all over the seats and the thieves swipped the section hiker's wallet which he had locked in the glove compartment. After the fiasco, we stopped at Burger King then got cleaned up at Russ's apartment before we hit the road for Caratuck at 6:45pm. We stayed at Steve the Ferryman's place - Trailside Cabins - tonight to hike another section of the A.T. tomorrow.
