I walked down to the motel office this morning to see if I could buy a postage stamp in order to mail my wife Kim a birthday card. The owner gave me a stamp and refused my attempt to pay for it.
After returning to my room to finish packing, I discovered that I had forgotten to charge my backup battery the whole time I was staying here. It was foolish mistake, considering I had been here for two nights.
The best I could do was plug it in and hope it charged up enough to get me by until my next stop where an electrical outlet was available. I hadn’t run out of power yet while on this hike, but the next few days will be a test to see how long I can stretch the power in my phone and camera. I think I will have enough, though, because we intend to stop in Manchester Center in three days.
