Day 6 (of the #NHRebellion Walk)

We crossed the 1/2 way point today, ending at 95.2 miles, with 90 to go. We’re through the most difficult walks, sort of. 20 more miles today. 17 the day after. But then it slows down.

We’ve been staying in the homes of volunteers the last few days. More have been joining along the way. The cars keep honking.

There’s one thing I think I know after a week out here that I didn’t when I started this walk.

@Lessig: the toughest day (of the #NHRebellion walk)

From Lessig.tumblr.com

So this is difficult, it turns out. I guess that should have been obvious, but still, difficult.

Tuesday we did a short walk from Gorham to Pinkham Notch — basically straight up the mountain. As we arrived at an Appalachian Trail Conservancy, the rain began, and with it began an insane 36 hours.

There hasn’t been a single person along these 47 miles so far who has had to be convinced of the problem. At least some see this as the start of a solution.

@Lessig posts about Days 2 & 3

 From Day 2:

The best story from yesterday was at a logging site. The owner was an “independent” from the Tea Party. We explained what we were doing, and he shook with agreement. His issue was the debt. “We’ll never,” he told us on film, “solve the debt until we get the money out of politics.” 

From Day 3:

At this stage of the walk, we’re largely isolated. But the walk is clearly known, as people are constantly stopping along the road, or honking with their thumbs up as they pass. We did some door to door at the end of the day, waiting for a pickup. The guy opened his door (in really fancy pj bottoms), with: “hey, welcome, how’s the march?”

More after the flip:
