Day 19 | Florida Trail 0 miles (zero day) 1/18/18
I've done nothing but eat, sleep and binge watching more tv haha.
I've been packing up my stuff, getting ready for the post office drop I'm making and planning some stops for my resupplys along my next sections while I watch tv.
It was my little brothers birthday to he turned 6, a few more years and both of them are going to be taller than me I bet, being 5 6' is a tough battle!! I'm low to the ground though so less damage when I fall and I get to avoid most of the spider webs along the trail!! I love animals, and everything about them but the small ones still get me! I don't like not seeing them when some of them can kill you!
Tomorrow is the day I go back to the trail and I'm stoked!! It's been a great visit with my family and I enjoyed catching up and relaxing with them. But the trail has my name on it and I can't wait to walk some more! My plan is to finish before the 15th of Feb so I gotta pick up the pace!
One more night on a comfy mattress then back to the ground I go.
PCT | WASHINGTON | I stopped and chatted with a couple on this bridge for awhile. They pointed out these cool webbed footed birds that dove into the water like ducks, and we watched them forever. I learned the man was a retired science teacher who had just finished his last section of the PCT, took him 20 years to do it. At the end of the conversation he said, “Hey, thanks for stopping. Most of you guys are just rushing by at this point, no time for an old guy like me. But you’ll finish and then spend the rest of your time wishing you’d stopped right here on this bridge, just a little longer.” True dat.
Part 3: After coming down the summit from Madison to the Madison hut, we realized there were grey, fast moving ominous clouds coming in from the Northeast. Knowing how unpredictable the Presidentials are we couldn't risk the extra .4 miles of rock scramble to the summit of Adams. Time to descend. Followed by more sunshine, a summit gamble we lost. Maybe next trip we would get it right.
Неожиданные встречи в темноте.
Во время очень ранней тренировки часто вижу тени собак в темноте. Стаи которые живут в лесу, обычно беззвучно растворяются в черноте ночи. Те которые живут на окраинах в складах шумно лают или спят. Один раз выскочив из леса я неожиданно напугал пса, и он с диким визгом и матом очень быстро побежал по дороге в даль. А эти парни оказались на редкость добродушным. Как-то я их покормил и теперь они искренне радуются странному бегуну.
Unexpected encounters in the dark.
Very early in the morning, I often see the shadows of dogs in the dark. Pack of dogs that live in the forest, usually quietly dissolve in the black of the night. Those who live on the outskirts in warehouses noisily bark or sleep. One day I suddenly jumping out of the forest, unexpectedly frightened the dog, and it with a savage shriek run away very quickly on the road. But these guys were extremely good-natured. Somehow I fed them and now they sincerely rejoice at the strange runner
