  Had a fitfull but otherwise good night sleep last night. Got me one of 
  them new fangled blackbird hammocks from Warbonnet. And it performed 
  well. Rained most of the night and I stayed high and dry.Even had a 
  thunderstorm with heavy rain.Stayed on schedule with a 17.9 mile day 
  today and caught up with what I believe is a thru hiker bubble.  These 
  are all 20-something's who will leave me in the dust.  GAZELLES!Nothing 
  truly remarkable to report today other than the sun came out briefly.  
  That was nice as it warmed things up a bit as it has been chilly sine I 
  have been here.  Certainly a big change from those 95 degree days we 
  have been having in Mississippi. I think the rain is supposed to hang 
  around a few more days.  Ugh!I have decided to change the name from New 
  Jersey to New Rock-sey.  Has been tough on the feet but nothing I can't 
  handle.Staying at Gren Anderson Shelter to night with sights set on 
  Unionville tomorrow.  A 20 plus miler.  Then, I scale the mileage back. 
  To make these old legs last.  Time to read a bit.  Then, it's lights 
  out!
  Peace
