One mile hike to get out of the woods then the 2.4 mile hike on blacktop to Evergreen Baptist Church and their awesome water faucet! Still early so cool and I had a nice long rest with the water at Evergreen, that I paid for later. Evergreen to TH9 is dirt road. One dog after about .75 mile but she looked very pregnant and not interested. Some dogs on each side about a mile later – the ones on the left were fenced, the one on the right did not have a visible fence. Barks were definitely worse than any bite. I carried on and enjoyed the horses and cows giving me the strange looks! Into Big Woods and a fine nap on the bench at Big Woods camp. Fine water at the beautiful pond at 58.5. And then a 7 mile march with about 2.5 miles on dirt road. That stretch just seems like a slog. Arrived at East 4 Notch camp after 6pm which is later than ideal. Great water at another beautiful pond. Some mozzies at the site but not too bad. I was very happy to lie down! Nearly halfway. Getting tired but I think the next day will be the big one – lots of road and the psychology of getting past I45.
