The Long Trail Day 23by cyberhiker01 on 06/25/14
I had no signal tonight-- Laine is filling you in. Per Laine: This was to be the day of climbing the highest peak in VT (I was told by one of the Trail Angels) so I was looking forward to hering how that went. Tomorrow they will be heading to Stowe, VT where he will pick up his next to last resupply and last fuel of the trail. This has been the most logistically challenging section, but I've had some great phone conversations with many people from the Trail community in VT in the process. The first sentence has been the same with each of them . . ."Did you say he is blind?" and the story continues. We are working hard to figure the path back from VT to Charlotte, which may be the most complicated part of the whole adventure-- reminds me of Planes, Trains, and Automobiles." Negotiating that event with Tennille and the limited schedules of trains and planes is not a simple feat. We welcome any suggestions! At present, we have found a ride back to Rutland, VT and Trail Angel Kathryn and her husband are willing to help them get to the next location, but scheduling is tricky. . . and we're not yet certain of that next location. However, I am certain it will all come together. The weather there is rainy again, so trekking will be slower and more methodical. Hopefully, by tomorrow night, Trevor will again be able to dictate his post from the trail. Thanks to all of you for your encouragement. He loves hearing each and every post and "like."
