Aug 12 , 1983 Friday (532.7 mtg) From Gonzo!s Appalachian Trail journal

The nasty weather continued today. I did not feel like subjecting myself to the cold, windy, rainy environment over some of the Vermont peaks providing supposedly great views, so I decided to stay at the shelter for another day and night, and perhaps defend my pigmainia championship title.

During the day, Malcomb gave me a ride into Manchester Center where I found a cheap pair of lightweight pants, and long sleeved shirt, and a few groceries. I was certain that the fall weather had arrived in the north-east. Most of the other hikers moved on, but I would not be alone as a new batch moved in later that afternoon. Ed decided to stay also. He was a weird "motorcycle rider looking" kind of guy. Along with the chaplain from an Ohio college, two others and myself, the crowd was very diverse.
