Woke up around 7:45am this morning at the cabin. That was trying to sleep in. Having a hard time sleeping past 7:00am even on my days off. Not like me.
Headed to the store/diner around 8:15am and had an awesome bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich. Man I love food. 🙂
Had to get to the post office at 9:00am to send some stuff back home. Went with another hiker named Monk. We were in and out of there in about 20 minutes. We also stopped by the outfitter to weigh Monk’s new pack. It came it at 43.8lbs. Way better than before. Still glad I am not carrying that much weight.
Headed back out on the trail around 11:00am. Pretty hot so the climbs right out of town were rough. I could tell right away I wasn’t feeling it today. Just felt like I was dragging an anchor behind me. Must be the zero day and all the food, soda, and beer I enjoyed.
Only planned on doing 11 miles today but ended up doing around 13. We are at Deep Gap tonight. Everyone is avoiding the shelters because there is some sort of stomach bug going around. I have heard that it is norovirus.
Oh, me and Gus both climbed a really awesome fire tower today. Great views. Had my picture taken at the too and took some pics of Gus taking a break up there.
Talk with you all later. I’m beat. Hopefully be in better shape tomorrow. Camping at Deep Gap tonight.
