Journals From A 2003 Thru-Hike of the Appalachian Trail (by Loony)
Entry #148 – September 21, 2003
8:30 PM – OK, pretty tired tonight. Ended up doing 22 miles to the Pierce Pond Lean-To. Had my very first night hike, even if it was only a half hour or so in the very dark. Decided to come all the way here, so that we could catch the Kennebec River Ferry on its early run, from 9 to 11, instead of waiting ’til the afternoon.
Was another nice day, with lots of flat walking. Lots of swamp & bog logs, but no moose.
It’s better to burn out,
Than it is to rust.
