Day 88 – A Zero

Just Enough Ado About Nothing

Northstar surprised me with an awesome AirBnB located just a few miles from the Green Point School Road trailhead. We stayed in the basement level of a large A-frame cabin built at the base of Blue Mountain, the allegedly rocky ridge I’d be hiking next. We had air conditioning, a shower, room for Gus to run, a washing machine, clean sheets, and a pool. What more could we ask for?

Funny you should ask. The host left a basket of salty snacks on the table and a frozen pizza in the fridge, all of which I vacuumed up in no time. Same for the frosted beer mugs in the freezer.

Best of all, it was country quiet – birds, a distant lawn mower, and nothing else. Northstar snoozed, and I sat on the shaded porch swing and threw Gus’ lacrosse ball out into the five-acre lawn. Perfect.

We never left the property.
