The Wild Life

The trek from Matagammon to Shin Pond is 14.5 miles on an asphalt rd  and the rain is coming. I would have never even considered this on the AT but i am going to hitch to Shin Pond. Don’t have any desire to walk 14 boring miles on the side of the road. A bear hunter from Connecticut takes me from Matagamon to Shin Pond.  Storms are rolling in and I don’t have the energy to deal with a rainy night in my beloved tent. I give in to my weakness and rent a cabin. Oh Glorious hot shower and a bed!!!!  I eat two meals and sit and watch the rain from the front porch. Is this real??
