My name is Lori. In August, 2014, I plan to hike the Camino de Santiago trail. Feel free to join me on my adventure by following me on this blog.

I am lying in my tent right now listening to rain and thunder. The storm is welcome since many streams and springs along the trail have been dry or nearly dry. 
Yesterday, I took a zero day in Warwick, NY. It was a great little town! Me and Roboticus shared the "princess room" at the Meadow Lark Farm B&B. The rest was so nice, and well deserved after three 18 mile days in a row! Voltron and Bobby-now called "pickup", stayed in tents in a field at the B&B. 

This is Dorothy, who runs the place all by herself. It's her first year of advertising in the AT guide, and the hikers have overwhelmed her a bit, but she does a great job. 
My friend Elke found out that I was going to be in Warwick, and it turns out she has a good friend who lives there. Diane came and picked us up and showed us around the Warwick village. She also took us to the grocery store for resupply of food for the next week of hiking. Thanks, Diane!!

In case you didn't notice, I found a cute, lightweight dress to wear in town while all my other clothes are being washed. Much better outfit for summer than rain gear!
For dinner, we bought veggie burgers and grilled out on Dorothy's patio. It was one of the best dinners I've had for a long time! For dessert, girl scout cookies from my sweet friend, Kelly. 

Today we finished New Jersey. Eight states complete!

 Tomorrow we will pass the mark where we will have less that 800 miles to go. The countdown is on!
New Jersey was pretty rocky, much like Pennsylvania. New York seems that way as well, with more rock climbing. 

Today, I got a partial picture of a blue tailed salamander or lizard that is definitely worth showing off. It was so neat!

One of the interesting things about hiking in NJ was the miles of boardwalks. 

The bugs, however, are driving me crazy. Except for the lightening bugs, I love those!!


  1. Lor... Instead of worms, do ya think you could send me some lightening bugs? I've always wanted to see those! :) Glad to see you're still doing well. I really like that dress btw..
