The contra dance, a mix between square and line dancing, was a gay ol’ time. A large number of people took over a gym to dance from 8pm to 7am.

I only stayed until about 4am when I went back to Dan and Meg’s place, where Dan let me in and took Lucy out for a pee.

During the night in between I was denied a place to camp for the first time. I was in Massachusetts at the time, already having gone through NH. The next family I asked let me camp, but did not want anything to do with me after that.
