The Approach

Location: Willows Motel - Williamstown, MA

All my bag(s) are packed and I'm ready to go.

Spent the day riding various busses from Maine to the northwest corner of Massachusetts. Busses were running too close for comfort (late) all day, so when I got to Pittsfield, MA and had an hour to spare until my next bus I walked on over to a local Mexican restaurant for some dinner.

Surprisingly, one of the best Mexican meals I've had in all my life. IANAMFC, but it was incredibly delicious.

Last bus of the day was supposed to show up at 2115 and take a few of us the last leg north to Williamstown, MA - didn't end up showing until 2145. Effectively, the bus showed up when we were supposed to arrive at our destination.


Got into Williamstown, MA around 2215. Walked the mile and a half from the bus station to the motel - no way anyone was going to pick up a hiker this late. The walk was pleasant, the air cool, the stars bright.

Looking forward to getting some sleep, a hearty breakfast, and stepping foot back on the trail once more.
