100 Miles on Barn Island

5.01 miles; stonington, ct welp, i did it… i hiked 100 miles in november, finishing it up, fittingly, on barn island. this was the place back in january of 2012 where i amazed myself by actually walking 3 whole miles in a row. (just a warning, if you follow that link you won’t find much. […]
