After an all you can eat pancake breakfast this morning and a lazy morning of relaxing we got on the trail at about noon. We had five days of food on us, which is the most we have carried the entire trip, but we are only planning a partial day today.
It turned out to be good we weren’t planning a full day because our town break, good though it was, seems to have made both of us feel even more tired. Sometimes only a little rest when you really need a lot is almost worse than none at all. Our bodies are definitely ready to be done! Of course the full load of food didn’t help! We were both glad to stop for the night much sooner than we had planned. A good night’s sleep and getting up early tomorrow will serve us better than stumbling through the woods tonight!
Still, we are both pushed onward by the thought in the back of our heads that we are almost there! Only about 100 miles to go!
