Hiking in Vermont - Fall 2012

25 days (from 2012/10/23 until 2012/11/18) on a section of the Appalachian Trail (about 100 miles southbound from Hanover to Manchester Center).

15 days on the move... + 5 nights camping in the woods without hiking.... + 5 nights off the trail in small inns (2 nights in Woodstock VT : the first one to rest and clean up and the second one forced because of hurricane Sandy... + 1 night in Killington VT to rest and clean up... + 1 forced night in Rutland VT to replace a broken watch... + the last night of the trip in Manchester VT to rest, clean up and organize a way back to NYC).

Average distance per hiking day = 6.5 miles (10.5 km)
Daily maximum = 11 miles (17.7 km)
Backpack weight = from 24 to 30 kg with food (53 to 66 lb)
