Comments: Another cool night but the rain stopped sometime between mid night and 5 am. I sat on South Crocker's summit ledge and enjoyed my instant coffee while watching the sunrise. It was stunning, the views were wide open. I only had 6.1 miles to go from South Crocker over North Crocker down to my car. I started at 7 am. Sun was out hot and bright when I got to my car. Lots of action in the parking lot at 10 am. Thru hikers coming and going. Many I had met at the shelter the previous evening. Batman, the local police chief, gave me a cupcake and passed out lots of trail magic goodies. He gave some rides to the hostels. The AT Yearbook Odie's school bus showed up too and I was offered to go to Rangeley for Trail Days but I had things to do. I dried out my tent and re supplied my pack. I was able to get Greg to help me drop my car off at Caratunk and then dropped me off at the Hostel of Maine (a great hostel).
