Date- February 16, 2019
Distance Hiked today- 1.5 miles
Distance Hiked total – 585.9 miles
Today was just like old times:
Sitting in a strange town, not really doing anything, but still feeling like there was nothing more important we could be doing.
We hung out around Butler … eating, lying in the shade, and reminiscing about times long past. It was like we were back on the AT enjoying a zero day in 2014. Major nostalgia trip.
We even hatched an EPIC adventure plan for 2020 – however I’m not going to discuss it just yet. Maybe at the end of this year I will… after a little more research.
A little after 5pm, Jim brought us back up to Osceola and dropped us off at the trail. We hiked a mile and a half before making camp. It’ll be back to regularly scheduled hiking tomorrow, and we’ll be crossing the 600 mile mark! From what I’ve heard, the trail north of Osceola is quite… wet. But I guess we’ll see for ourselves!
