First let me thank Snowshoe Lodge and Pub and First Trax for their extreme hiker friendliness. The Snowshoe is where I have been staying, eating, and drinking. Rob the owner also hooked me up with a ride for tomorrow morning. He has a great place here and is very friendly. First Trax is the local ski & snowboard shop. There I found Sno Seal waterproofing, my favorite, and water proof gloves. My old ones are in the trash where they belong. Donnie, the owner, loaned me out his snowshoes also. I'm his sponsored hiker.
Obviously I decided to head back out. I'm psyched. I'll get dropped at the ski area and snowshoe up to where I left the Long Trail. If conditions are good I'll make Journey's End Camp that same day, but I am expecting to spend the night at Shooting Star Shelter and hike out the next day. I have an extra day of food but don't expect to need it.
Check out JayPeakVermont.org to see the area. I didn't take any pictures around town today.
