Its the 13th, we arrived in Boston yesterday as scheduled and spent last evening and this morning walking around town. Nice town, very walkable and above all – warm! 80’s! Probably the warmest weather we’ll see the whole trip and we took full advantage of it. We stayed in the Beacon Hill area, which is apparently unique in that it’s shop owners put out bowls of water for passing dogs.
We’re at the airport now and the hiking poles and tent stakes have made it through all TSA stops, though they were questioned in ANC and inspected in BOS. We really didn’t want to pay $25 for a single small box, or spend the time waiting for baggage along the way.
