Ascent Trip Report did an extra five miles after passing him the first day out of Monson and stayed at Long Pond Stream Lean to with a couple of hikers that I would finish with Katahdin, Mylo and Nuke. We also happened to have a Colby College freshman orientation group camped right outside the shelter. We really liked that because the Colby group gave us all of their leftover food, since they were headed out the next morning and didn't want to carry much with them. It was nice getting lots of trail mix, granola bars, and pepperoni packages. I moved on the next day climbing Barren mountain and the 4 Chairback mountains. I got to the Chairback shelter that day at 3pm for lunch after 11 miles and decided to stay for night since I saw a notice for a 11am pickup on Katahdin Iron Works Road to go to a Labor Day cookout
