I’m in Conn now. Staying with 86 year old

Maria McCabe who rents out rooms to as many as 5hikers per night for $35 each. She still has a little Italian accent but she sure can talk! Stories about meeting her first husband, an American GI, at a dance in Italy just after the war was over. Married in Pisa, where the leaning tower is.
What a sweetheart!
Other news. My wife Joan will be coming up to Pittsfield MA to join me for a few days hiking in the western MA Berkshire Mountains. We have reservations at inns and B&Bs along the way to North Adams. No roughing it for us on this stretch although we will do “some” hiking during the day.
You can see even from up on the ridge tops where I spend most of my days that this section is loaded with money. It is also supposed to be loaded with deer ticks that can cause Lymes disease. I haven’t seen a tick on me since PA. Deet to the rescue I guess.
