Started in the dark today.. had a nice sunrise peaking over the mountains.
Trail was really good today. Not much rocks on the trail and not many steep parts either. Generally quite smooth trail.
We carried a lot of water and picked it up when we could. There have been some discrepancies with the guidebook and reality as far as the reliability of finding water. We have rarely carried a full two liters of water with us, but did today. Felt like we needed to do so the last couple days.
Got to our planned destination at 3:30 but kept going four more miles to a shelter, since we still had good energy and knew that getting some miles in the ‘mile-bank’ would benefit us at the next town stop.
Beardo has a shoe that has been bothering his feet. He had received a replacement pair after the previous pair had prematurely worn out. The new pair has one shoe that just feels weird and wrong. Hopefully the shoe and his foot will come to some agreement shortly.
Sweet Pea’s hip was sore but Ibuprofin helped it quite a bit so she didnt have any pain as the day went on.
Same group of guys at the shelter as last night, which is enjoyable.
