Bonds Traverse: Take Two

A rest day today; not for resting up from yesterday but for resting up for tomorrow's Bonds Traverse, Take 2. Still feeling a bit fluey so I thought it best to relax today, replenish fluids, eat well, and get to bed early. I've already dropped my car at Zealand Road and Atticus and I will be dropped off at Lincoln Woods somewhere between 6:30 and 7:00 tomorrow morning where we will start our long walk back to our car 24.5 miles away. In the course of the hike we plan on traversing Bondcliff, Bond, West Bond, Zealand and finally, Hale. Not sure how long it will take. Probably anywhere between 12 and 15 hours. The maps and the path we will follow is described here, only in the opposite direction. We were going to go from north to south, now we'll go just the opposite.
