A perfect fall day! I jogged over from my house to the Dartmouth green, officially starting my watch at 4:23am from the DOC sign. Caught a glorious sunrise on Moose Mtn! It was helpful to know these trails well, especially while navigating by headlamp. I filled up with water in the stream at the Smarts mtn trailhead, in a murky beaver pond at the crossing with 25A, and in stream in Glencliff before the final ascent up Moosilauke. I saw some friendly faces along the way but received only air-high fives and words of encouragement as this was a fully unsupported effort. Oreos and 90s rap music provided essential bonk prevention. The day passed surprisingly quickly and I enjoyed every minute of it.
