  1. Day 11: Measured Improvement

    Got back on trial about 9:30, with 11.2 miles to Addas Gap. It was a cold morning and played the layer game all day. Jacket on, jacket off, gloves on, gloves off. Stop take a break, everything back on. Had a spring in my step because my right knee had zero pain. Hooray! Made into camp at 4:30. Last time I had similar miles, I got into camp closer to 6:30. Itís exciting to see improvement. Earlier night due to cold. Hopefully, Iíll sleep comfortably.

My friend Lizzie decided to get off trail and come into town due to the cold, so we are splitting a room. Decided to take advantage of the zero day and go to Urgent Care and get my knee checked out. The doctor believes itís just inflamed, ...
  3. Day 9: Change of Plans

    Got up about 8am this morning to rain and my tent was in a good 2 in puddle. Stayed relatively dry considering. Packed up my gear and hung out in the shelter until about 10:30am since my shuttle wasnít until 2pm. It was interesting to hear everyoneís plans on how to beat the weather. Go into town, stay at the shelter or hike on and hope there will be room at the next shelter. This is my first deviation from plan and I would be lying if I didnít say that it doesnít bother me to be delayed, but Iím ...
