I was unsure about how much food to carry for the next few days because I didn’t know what options were available when I reached Glencliff, N.H. If I could resupply there, food for four days should be sufficient. If not, I'd need food for five days.
Information in the trail guides I looked at wasn’t clear about options around Glencliff. It was hard to tell how easy it would be to buy what I needed.
The momentary worry soon ended when I thought of a plan with some options.
First, I sent a text to the hostel at Glencliff to ask about resupply. I hoped to have an answer by the time I went to the store before leaving Norwich, but if I didn’t I still had a second option to shop for food in Hanover.
