Great day. Julia and I got our sweat on in the 80+ degree weather, and now I have someone outside of the thru hiker community to understand the pain on the PA rocks. I feel validated. She would say “really!??!” When we would get to another bolder field. Made me feel better about hating her state. I left my stuff at the shelter and walked the two miles to where Doug was picking her up, and the three of us went out for dinner. Pizza subs and beer. Hiker heaven. Thanks Doug for making the trip with Julia possible! (He drove from Scranton to take Julia back to her car. Lots of driving on his part.)
Without a pack it was a quick walk back to the shelter where I got to surprise Cassandra Chris and witch doctor with leftover food and chocolate milk. It was nice to provide some trail magic!
Miss Julia already. Always do.
