I guess it's like Mother Goose says, a day off in town doesn't mean a rest day. Laundry, grocery shopping, schlepping about town on the bus. You get the idea. However it is now 6pm and everything is done that can be done the rest will take care of itself.
Leaving town tomorrow my pack will be heavy with 7 days of food. Water will be an issue so add a few more pounds for water and I think you can imagine my pack will be a tad on the heavy side. Mother Goose and Alphabet Soup will be upping their mileage so our paths may diverge for a bit but I am sure we will still see each other out there. This is good for me as I was feeling a bit needy for some alone space. I am a good group member but my goal was to do a solo trip, not join a group for the whole trail.
Here are photos of my trail friends, Mother Goose and Alphabet Soup m
