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 […]

Steere Hill Farm

So how does one amuse 300 soldiers […]
