Day 5 27th N-S Trail Trek

13 miles; Foster and Burriville, RI, and Killingly, CT [Editors Note: Once again I’ve broken my solemn vow to not let unposted hikes accumulate. I wound up almost a full month and 8 hikes behind. Mea culpa. Won’t happen again. I hope. All caught up now!] Alas, once again I won’t be able to do […]

Day 4, 27th N-S Trail Trek

10.3 miles; Coventry and Foster, RI [Editors Note: Once again I’ve broken my solemn vow to not let unposted hikes accumulate. I wound up almost a full month and 8 hikes behind. Mea culpa. Won’t happen again. I hope.] Not my favorite of all the legs on this trail, but still a lot of fun […]

Day 2.5 27th N-S Trail Trek

9.5 miles; West Greenwich and Coventry, RI and Sterling, CT I called this Day 2.5 because it’s the dreaded Day 3 18-mile section, and I just didn’t feel up to 18 miles. Instead, I met my pals Mel and Bob at Pinetop and hiked the last 9+ miles with them. The detour wasn’t as bad […]

Day 1 27th N-S Trail Trek

12.1 miles; Charlestown and Richmond, RI I wasn’t sure until almost the last minute whether I’d do this again. I will miss Day 4 and Day 6 this year due to prior commitments. Alas, no completion patch for me this year… This hike was harder than I expected, even with the aggressive neighborhood walking I […]

26th Annual N-S Trail Trek, Leg 5

13.4 miles; Foster and Gloucester, RI and Killingly, CT After the 17-mile leg, then the “easy-peasy” 10.1 miler, this didn’t seem as if it would be very difficult at all. Well, a 13-mile hike is still a long-assed hike, and I haven’t been spending hardly any time hiking recently. Long story short, I was really […]

26th Annual N-S Trail Trek, Leg 4

10.1 miles; Coventry and Foster, RI After the last grueling leg, this leg seemed easy-peasy—all road walking and “ONLY” 10+ miles. We (for a change) had a glorious day, if not super warm, with sunshine and blue skies the whole time. This is a beautiful part of the state, which made the road-walking downright pleasant, […]
