I'm proud to report that Mike and I are in our home state of Connecticut. We did a huge 24 mile day to break out of Mass, crossing the border sometime around 7 p.m. Right now we are in the internet cafe' in Salisbury Connecticut.

Salisbury, CT

It feels wonderful to be in our home state. We will probably make quick work of Connecticut as well.

Oh how the luck continues to follow us! We were able to climb over Race Mtn (mass) and Bear Mtn (CT) in PERFECT weather. Clear skies and great views. It was really exciting to stand on top of Race mtn and look out in to the Connecticut valley, knowing that we are almost home.

Watch out for the Joes Hole Posse in the nutmeg state!

Hey Bruce: This is Blake's dad. I'll do my best to make sure the word gets passed to your son. I am due to get Blake and crew off the AT tomorrow (Th), so I know I'll be talking to Balke before then (he'll call me).
