We slept in till 7 this morning and spent a few hours packing and organizing our gear. We shouldered our now enormous and heavy packs, checked out of the hotel, and headed to the post office to mail home all of our summer gear. At the PO, a man recommended we go across the street and get some gelato before we left town...why not? We shared some chocolate chip and got on the trail to follow it out of town. On the way we passed an Indian restaurant and decided to get lunch before we left. A delicious 45 minutes later, we were discussing turning our intended 1.5-mile nero into a zero. We headed to the grocery store for a few last-minute things and made the final decision to stay. We got some cereal and milk for breakfast in the morning and went back to the Six South Street Hotel. The afternoon was lazy and perfect and we watched the updates on Hurricane Irene...looks like we're going to get lots of wind and rain! To keep dinner cheap we ran to CVS and picked up a few things. Tomorrow we'll hike out of town for about 11 miles and find a spot to wait out the storm!
