I did a 20 nile slackpack yesterday. And it was delightful. Uncle Johnny’s drove us up the road 20 miles to hike back to his place, and today, he’s taking us back that 20 miles to go on from there. I got to carry a tiny little day back and I felt like I could fly! I was back at the hostel by 3:30 for swimming in the river and some cards! It was a great day.
Some people may judge me and say that I’m no longer hard core, for going 20 miles without my heavy pack. But that’s cool, I can take it. I still think I’m a tough, and quite frankly, my back really needed the break! It felt weird to be going south though. Now it’s on to Damascus, VA. I should be there sometime on Monday! Yeeeeeh-ha!
