Good morning from Conellsville.
Conellsville's free camping.

Today was all about trying to put in some miles before yesterday’s sprint from Confluence to Conellsville caught up with me. I got an early start and didn’t stop too much for the first couple of hours, but by noon I really started to feel the miles. When I got to Boston, PA, I stopped for a bit to look at my trail maps and Google maps to figure out where the next place to stay would be. The next campground or motel was 20-25 miles down the road, so I stopped even though it was still pretty early.

An old warehouse along the trail.


There is a store next to the trail that has a couple of guest rooms. When I asked if they had anything available tonight, the owner said one was reserved. The other had someone last night and they hadn’t had a chance to clean it yet. I told her I wasn’t particular about how clean the room was. She changed the sheets and put in some clean towels and gave me the room for less than half price. I was shocked at how nice the room was. It looked very clean to me. It had a living room with a large sectional sofa, a bed room, dressing room and bathroom. What she charged me was less than what I have paid at hostels. I was about to ask which parts were common areas when I realized the whole thing was part of the same room.

Tomorrow I will be leaving the GAP. I will be on other trails for a while, but I think my nice flat ride is about to come to an end. I dropped my camera yesterday. It still seems to work okay, but the zoom is a little bit messed up and all my pictures have a dark line along one side.

One thought on “Boston (June 29)

  1. Since you’ve been living in one of those famously small New York apartments it occurred to me any room might look spacious to you. 🙂 The picture of the ware house in the woods reminded me of my favorite childhood story.—- The Boxcar Children. 🙂 🙂 🙂 Enjoyed your script and pictures as usual. 🙂 🙂 🙂 Sharlyn will be home from China tomorrow night. We’re getting together for a family supper. 🙂
