Saw my third bear yesterday. TwoKnee spotted it. It slowly walked in a semi circle around us before moving on.

Stayed at a great shelter called Secret Shelter or Jim Murray's Shelter. It is on private property owned by Jim Murray. It is fully enclosed, not your typical three sided shelter. Also had electricity and a fan inside. We got our devices all charged fully.

There is a donkey that lives on the property. Nicely tempered and friendly. TwoKnee brushed it and I fed it with food provided by the owners. there is a second cabin on the property used by the caretaker, who we never saw. Looks like a full kitchen inside and an upstairs loft. My favorite shelter so far.

New Jersey has been very good to us!
