Mile 722.6 - Kent, CT

Today, we got trail magic. This time, though, it wasn't from a stranger, but from our family!

My sister QuickQuestion, brother-in-law Yankee, nephew Bones and niece Curly Locks picked us (including Fire Marshall - we have reunited!) up from the trail in Kent and took us home to shower, launder and eat home-cooked goods. It has been glorious!

The first thing Bones said ... You smell like onions! I really felt for them because they endured an hour-long car ride with us before our showers. To say we were ripe (6 days without) is an understatement.

My sister is definitely a hostess with the mostest. She had endless cherry cokes, fresh fruit, ziti, meatballs, desserts to take on the trail ... We are ever so grateful!!

We turned their house upside down, spreading gear about and taking care of town chores. And I have to add, when they picked us up today, they were at the wrong trailhead. Because I sent them to the wrong one!! Call it a blond moment!

So tomorrow, we are back on the trail. And not only will we finish CT and enter NY, but we will be finished with 33% of the trail tomorrow!

Will update our CT stats in a few days! Fort Montgomery, here we come!
