July 12th: Weak Will and Negative Influences
Miles Today: 11.5
Mile Marker: 1,610.6 Bennington, VT
This morning I was packing up to head out when I overheard Dr. Stretch mention going to a movie when he got in town. My plan was to go to a burrito place called Cilantro, grab my resupply, and head back out. Unfortunately the seed was already planted. MacGyver and Trinity needed to rent a car and go pick up their van several towns back. They offered to drive us around in Bennington after they got the rental. That was game over for hiking for me today. I'm at a point where I'm anxious to finish. I can see the end now and it's within grasp. I'm also trying to be aware of what the end of the journey means and soak it up while I can. An unplanned nearo in town to hang out with friends is still the best move. The burrito was delicious, and the movie Baby Driver was great. No regrets.
