steps: around 15000

everything was messed up this morning, because I didn’t get to weigh myself before breakfast and I erased the number of steps last night while I was trying to press the light button.

In Walk in the Woods, Bill talks about the history of the trail a bit, Bill and Katz pack, and they embarked upon their journey. Katz is a big mess. On the 5th day, they meet up with this even bigger mess, Mary Ellen, and she joins them.

They come to an inn that has food and soda for sale. Bill reflects on how the experience of the A.T. is one of deprevation, and how, even after only 5 days of deprevation, a slice of white bread can “bring you to the brink of orgasm”. whew!
