Independence Day

Andover, ME, Friday July 4, 2014 — Zero. That’s what I did today.

Actually we had a “tube steak” cookout on the soggy porch of the Pine Ellis Hostel. Among the guests were a half dozen German SOBOs and a Brit. The Americans were a distinct minority. How American is that? I Ioved it.

The town is tiny to say the least. Three cafés and a gas station. Too small for a parade or fireworks. Peace and quiet are the heart of Andover’s brand, and it delivered.

The photo is of Main St. from the town green. It pretty much says it all.

Happy Fourth everyone.

Tomorrow we hike backward (south). More to follow.
