Dateline: Maine

Well, I made it. After over 42 hours of traveling — taking three trains, two buses, and a van — through a total of fifteen states, and after long waits and interminable delays, I finally made it here to Millinocket; I’ve made it to The Beginning.

It’s amazing how traveling can wear you out, even if you are just sitting there passively watching the world roll by your window.  I was utterly exhausted by the time I got here. “Here”, by the way, is the Appalachian Trail Lodge — a beautiful, century-old boarding house that owners Paul and Jamie operate as a wonderful hostel for AT hikers.

I’m staying here for a couple of nights; l want to be as rested and ready as possible before tackling Katahdin.

I haven’t even set foot on the trail yet, but I am already having the time of my life. There is so much to tell about! Alas, it will have to wait — this little traveller needs her beauty sleep.
