We just crossed into New Hampshire! We're sitting in a coffee shop (Breaking New Grounds) in Portsmouth, NH. Tasty coffee and food! And free wifi. There are a few pictures on the Flickr account (see the photo feed above) .. for some reason I couldn't upload them here.
We spent the last couple days enjoying nice weather (read: no rain), although it's been a little chilly. Ed can't handle the cold very well, poor guy.
I've been enjoying a new rain jacket - when we were in Freeport, Maine, I found a Patagonia store (maker of the jacket I started the trip with) and decided to ask them if they could do anything about the liner of my jacket (which is 5-6 years old, dirty, holey, and has been through a lot), which was starting to delaminate. They said it was a warranty issue and that they'd replace it for free. So, thanks to Patagonia for the new jacket... it's great!
A couple days ago we stopped at a nice pub in Standish, ME and had some great beer while watching UT lose to Oklahoma. There's always next year, I guess. Nice of those guys to let us watch the game that probably nobody else in Maine cared about (no comments from Ed's dad here!)
Today we've got a great tailwind so we're making good time so far. We stopped at the ocean this morning and it wasn't nearly as cold as I was expecting, although I didn't jump in or anything. Hoping to make 50-60 miles today. We'll probably be out of New Hampshire tomorrow...crazy! It seems like Maine took us forever. All these tiny states are really a morale booster! Cheers!
