Trip Report: I woke to mosquito's buzzing my ear at 5AM this morning and within a thirty minutes gave up on sleeping. We packed up and hit the trail around 7am after a breakfast of oatmeal and hiked 14+ miles to VT9 by 3pm today. Mackie's clean face scored us an instant hitch into town within two minutes of hitting VT9 via two twenty-something ladies that took us straight to the motel to pick up our car. We hit the pool in the 80 degree heat and enjoyed the slide and large inflatable crocodile, then had dinner at the nearby pizza place. By 10:30pm, we made it to the hiker hostel in Gorham where we stayed for the night and had a few brews from a cooler with the Professor (GAME '95) and Thumper who were section hiking.
