We stopped at the Homestead Starbucks for a final bit of caffeine before plunging into the unknown. Hit the Boston tea shoppe for cookies and cokes while they were having a princess-themed birthday party for a little girl. Stopped for lunch in West Newton.
In Connellsville I ate pizza at NY-Pizza which is consistently very good, then I camped at the A-shelters. A few people in another shelter were playing banjo music and it was very pleasant.
