We spent entire weekend in Salisbury, CT with a person named Vanessa B.  She supported us by shuttling us to do some slackpacking across the challenging  section between Salisbury, CT and Jug End in MA.  We took advantage of nice weather over the weekend rather than taking a zero day as we planned.  We were blessed with this opportunity.  We enjoyed our time with Vanessa and appreciated her time and resources to help us out.  When I have more time to share more stories about what happened with our journey on the trail and how special Vanessa was to us, I shall do that soon as we arrive Williamstown (as of today, around 70 miles to go).  Thank you, Salisbury, for your great hospitality!

We strolled into Salisbury yesterday with gorgeous weather after a few days of battling with soggy weather.  Go figures!  =)  With next week’s weather forecast calling for more rain, we might forgone R&R and go for some hiking today.  Wait and see what Mother Nature has in store for us in next few days.

We are approaching Salisbury with anticipation for a bit of R & R (rest and relaxation) from soggy weather we dealt this week for two weeks in rows.  We understand that there may be another week of soggy weather.  *sigh*  We plan to come up with strategy how to deal with another week of soggy weather.  Williamstown, MA is around less than 90 miles away from Salisbury, CT.  Stay tuned, folks.

We were lucky to hike through a challenge portion of the trail rain-free in morning and afternoon.  Thunderstorm arrived in early evening and dumped some heavy rain and delivered its lightings and thunders that sent me running downhill!  We ended up drenched – wet rats again.  We got to stay at motel in Cornwall Bridge tonight.  Whew!  It rains a lot this month, so we might as well as start to build a canoe!  =)  We plan to hike tomorrow toward Falls Village then onwards to Salisbury.  Until next time, folks.

We limply arrived in Pawling, NY yesterday in early evening. We experienced 4 days out of 5 days with wet weather.    Cane fell down many times due to the wet condition on the trail.  At nights, it was cold to sleep.  *sigh*  Our beloved mobile Trail Angel, Paul E. came up via train and got off at AT train station in Pawling, NY to visit us today and tomorrow.  It is really good to see and chat with him!  We plan to resume our hiking this Monday toward Salisbury, CT for next 5 days or so.  There may be another wet weather.  UGH.  Wish us the best luck to stay in one piece and get through.  Sorry to keep this message short since the library closes in 5 minutes.  Until next time, folks!
