In a few hours, I’m going to catch the bus from Bennington to Williamstown. I am then going to walk approximately six miles from Williamstown to North Adams. If I had two nights off in a row, I would have considered spending the night in town. As is, I’m always confined to a handful of hours between the schedules for the Berkshire Transit Authority and the Green Mountain Trail bus.
I’ve decided there was no point in getting any sleep when I got home from work. Sometimes that’s easier than trying to sleep for a four or five hours, getting up, getting ready to go out and making sure I have everything I need.
Before I leave the house, I will spend about ten minutes under cold water to trigger the brown fat cells.
