I've been beat down by the terrain, the heat, and the lack of rest.  Im finally getting to take a much needed zero tomorrow.

It's been great hiking with old friends though. Today we all synced back up and hung out at the hotel.  Dr. Stretch, MacGyver, and Trinity are heading back out.  Hop Along, Cheese, Einstein, and I are a staying in town to zero.  I'll take the three heading out to the trail in their van in the morning and pick them up in the evening.  They are letting us use it the rest of the day for our errands.  It is going to make this town stop so much easier.
