6/23
 not sure how many miles but I hiked from 0700 to 1830.  I'm 
tenting at the Allentown shelter. There's tons of boy scout around 
here.  Hiking was very rocky and slow.  My feet r sore.  It was also 
90 degrees out.  The water for the shelter is on a side trail that 
brings u to the bottom of the mountain I'm sleeping on. So I had to 
climb this mountain twice already!  Enough complaining I'm ready for 
bed.

6/24
 17.5 miles. Staying at George Outer bridge Shelter. Slept really 
well.  Got a late start.  It was really hot again today 90!  There 
were tons of blueberries! I ate tons and picked some to go with my 
breakfast.  Bagels and peanut butter. Are now better with fresh 
berries! Not really too much going on just more rocks.  They were so 
steep at one point I had to put my poles away and climb.  Well since I 
got to the shelter so early I'm going to cook dinner now.

6/25
 I'm writing this a week late.  I think I hiked into wind gap with 
green dog.  I haven't seen him in many many miles.  The rocks suck 
still.  Ended upa a seedy hotel with stained pillows and the door did 
not lock.

6/26
decided to hang around to watch the world cup soccer game.  The 
US lost  in OT.  By the time the game was over it was already 4pm.  We 
decided to take a zero day.  The bar we were watching the game at let 
us camp behind it for the night. So that's what we did.

6/27
 mental note.  U don't rest good if your camping behind a bar. We 
hiked into Delaware water gap. 18 mile day.  We're staying at a church 
and tenting out behind it.  For dinner we found this farmers market 
that had a special  hot dog and apple pie of $2.50.  I had two!

6/28
 25 miles a big day.  Left DWG with Green Dog and Kricket (that's 
how he spells it). Hiked from 0800-840pm long day.  New jersey is real 
pretty however. The par we're in is rial and pretty.  We had some nice 
views and got to see the sun set over the ridge.
Later 4 of us got lost trying to find water after dark

6/29
 watuaga NJ 19 miles we stayed at a trail angels house. Woke up 
sore and tired after a long day.  Hiking was nice again. I saw a bear 
today on the trail. At the end of the day we were hanging around this 
park and this lady drives up. Alice is a trail angel!  She picked us 
up. Drove us home. Washed our clothes. We (thin mint, greendog, and 
Kricket) used her shower. Alice ordered us pizza and even bought us 
beer.  Alice's son is a former hiker. I slept upstairs on a pull out 
couch.

6/30
 20 miles. Tenting in front of the fire station on a busy street. 
Alice drove trail us back to the trail.  Nothing special happened just 
a nice day of hiking.
