1726.8 total miles
Motivated by free beer, meeting a friend and a town stop, the miles flew by.
I didn’t stop at Callahan’s in 2009. This time I did and I was rewarded with a free beer. All thru hikers get one. I told the people at the front desk that I was going into Ashland. I drank my beer with Beacon and then was told that the owner was driving into town and would give me a ride. Cool. Way better than hitching.
I met my friend Joy at the Co-op. Then we drove to her straw bale house. Such an awesome place. Beer, shower, great food, wine and talk……
