Crawford Notch, New Hampshire

week 1 fact
So far in New England, unmanned, trust-based, roadside stands such as this one are quite common! Lumber is a common seller, as well as fruit and veggie packages! Cool!

Of course, I cannot believe it has only been 10 days! Such great people, friendly conversation, and adventure every day! I have generally been doing about 20 miles a day… my most is 27! And my least has been the past 2 days, only about 6 a day… due to an unrepairable flat tire, which took me a good 24 hours to fix! So far: exhausting and amazing. πŸ™‚ Currently am in Montpelier VT! Headed south soon! See you next week & thanks!!

  1. So stoked to see this post; really happy for you and I love the idea of meeting the challenges as a way of support.
    Best of everything to you, stay cool and hydrated out there.


  2. Greetings from NJ ~ I have successfully completed challenge #1! I gave a nice white flower I had picked to a cashier at QuickChek, an older woman who is always working the late night shifts. I could tell she really appreciated it after she smiled and told me how she never got flowers from anyone before in her whole life!!!
