Hanover is a lovely little town. Of course, there's Dartmouth College, plus a nice little main street with cafes and bookstores and art galleries. Our original plan was to hang out in Hanover for a couple hours, resupply, and go another 6 miles to the hostel in Aetna. But when we called the hostel, we found that they were full. It looked like we were staying in Hanover. They had free shuttles, so that at least made it convenient.
We had lunch at the Dirt COwby Cafe and got the bus to the Sunset Inn Motel. After cleaning up, we took the next free shuttle to the grocery store for resupply and to a pizza place for second lunch. (and I'm losing weight. Go figure) Ran into FunkyTown in the plaza. Again, I thought they were 2 days ahead of us, but here we were, in the same place. We grabbed some 12 inch subs at Subway for dinner, and went back to the motel to do laundry. Free laundry at this place! ALways a plus. Spent the rest of the afternooon laying around in the air conditioned room, watching TV. Kind of a shame to be inside on a day like today, but when you are essentially living outside, an inside day is ok every now and then.
