40 years ago today: The beginning of the Appalachian Trail in New Hampshire followed busy streets through downtown Hanover, home to the Ivy Leagues Dartmouth College. The sidewalks were thronged with students and their families no surprise, since I imagine the fall term must be starting about now.

40 years ago today: As I reached the crest of a hill, the composition of the forest changed to a lovely spread of mature hardwoods sprinkled liberally with clusters of white birch. Rhododendron down south are quite a sight when they are in bloom, but, to my mind, nothing compares to the stark beauty of these wonderful trees, with their gleaming white trunks and limbs.

40 years ago today: In some ways, the portion of the AT which I describe in this chapter can be thought of as a connecting trail between the grandeur of the Green Mountains and the magnificence of the Whites. That outlook would ignore the charms of this pleasant country of rolling ridges and neat little farms. The overgrown fields through which I passed

40 years ago today: Took a day off the trail. From 6/3/83: The new trail route, for most of the distance to Don Nelan Shelter, either passed through private lands or followed rural lanes. From the highway, it climbed steeply through high pastures baking under a relentless sun.

40 years ago today: Took a day off the trail. From 8/8/83: I had hiked the preceding four miles without stopping, in one-and-a-half hours. I now possessed a half-hour cushion for my attempt to reach the monastery. I stumbled to the top of the ridge, where the Appalachian Trail came out onto an old dirt road.

I'm going to mark my calendar for next year's Sea to Sound as soon as they tell us the dates! Day Three was beautiful and I want to do this again. What a feeling of freedom to ride for 70 miles the past 3 days, almost every last foot of it on a separated trail.

40 years ago today: A heavy thundershower struck. It was nothing special compared to some of the boomers I had encountered down south, but I was thoroughly soaked climbing the next ridge. That felt like an improvement over the sauna in which I had been hiking earlier this afternoon.

40 years ago today: The haze remained dense, and clouds were slowly but steadily on the increase all day. As I began the final ascent of Mount Killington, I had already accepted the fact that dazzling panoramas were not in the cards this afternoon. The does not actually traverse Killingtons summit. The final quarter-mile is on a steep, rocky side trail.

40 years ago today: The Appalachian Trail descended very slightly from the summit before crossing two pastures on either side of a paved road. The first one was an adventure for a city boy like me. It was teeming with cows, large bodies sprawled all around the trail route.
