Time To Get Back on the Trail!

My right foot arch issues meant I really had no choice, but to take more down days…. not what I wanted, but got some rest and met lots of awesome people. I got out of Warner Springs Resource Center very late, around 3:00 in the afternoon …. so just got in about 6 miles before it got too dark by a nice stream.

Great to be back on the trail, but still worried about my foot …. and STILL sleeping on the ground since I no longer have a hammock and it will be a week or so until it comes in …. which sucks!

I met a great family from England and they were really sweet. Their kids go by the trail names Captain Obvious and Pippi … too cute!

The plan for tomorrow is to take it slow and see how my foot is or is not doing. Night!
