She's used to going with me all the time. I guess she just doesn't have any idea why she's not been with me on this long hike. I'll get her later and take her on the AT some with me, but for now, the FHT will do her some good.
Maybe I'm being a bit anthropomorphic, but I don't think so. Anyway, I'm getting out of here tonight with her. I meant to leave last night, but I had a terrible headache. We'll probably do 8 miles before dawn and gain ~2,000 feet. Not like going up to Sassafras Gap from the NOC, but still a nice night hike.
