Miles Today: 22.6
Mile Marker: 1,203.5
This morning Dr. Stretch took Trinity and MacGyver up the trail and dropped them off to head southbound. He came back and got me and we headed to the Dollar General for some things before we started. We didn't get on the trail until 10:15.
Today was rough, the trail is already morphing into rocks. My shoes are on the tail end of their life, and I am feeling every single rock down the trail. Later in the afternoon Trailer Steve had more trail magic set up for his wife Maggie Simpson. Everyone was there. Dr. Stretch beat me there; and Cheese, Einstein, Hop Along, Credence, and Clearwater were all there. I quickly drank a beer, refilled on water, and relaxed for about 20 minutes. At that point it was close to 4:00 and I still had 9.3 miles to go. Even though I was slack packing, it was still incredibly difficult. I didn't meet up with MacGyver and Trinity until nearly 8:00. Today kicked all of our asses. Thankfully we only have about 15 into Port Clinton tomorrow. I think on Friday I'll take a very, very much needed zero. Nearly 200 miles is too long without a zero.
