Day 159 Zero in Millinocket

Saturday 15th September

Oh such luxury of a real bed.
I got up showered another luxury and then went down to breakfast, it’s all self service continental which means cereal, waffles and toast .
But I ate my full and was fairly happy.
Once back to my room I stripped down my pack being fairly brutal on my rubbish and dumped loads of crap. I checked out and headed back to town.
It was a beautiful morning, warm all ready . On the way back I passed several  stores so went  inside for a nose.
I passed the post office ,good to know where that is as that’s will be my next chore after checking in.
At the hostel there were  many familiar faces just chilling  .I dropped my pack and enjoyed an early beer with them while I waited to check In

Next the post office, I had 14 parcels !!  I unwrapped them and put the contents into my new suit case then bounced my hiking poles to Boston and whoop my new Exped mat  was here so i swapped it for my faulty one and returned it to Exped . I hope I can get all this stuff home I thought !!

I then staggered back to my hostel with my suit case and other boxes . Once back i began to sort the stuff on my bed. I managed to get most a of it into my suitcase .
I then went to explore the festival  as I was leaving I met orange Nija , he mentioned that the hostel may have an old suit case . FOC.
Yes they did fantastic , i threw the rest of my gear into it plus my excess stuff that I didn’t want to carry up the mountain tomorrow .Result.!!!
I then explored town before meeting up with the invisible man and natty daddy for a few beers

We sat in the garden of the blue pub and were joined by more hiker trash .
It was great just chilling and chatting . I called it a day at 5pm as I wanted an early night as I was climbing tomorrow and the shuttle left at 6.10 am
