Total miles: 120
Yesterday morning we woke up in the frigid cold and I wanted to stay in my sleeping bag all day. I literally layed there till about 9 o clock. Finally David asked me if I was alive.
I knew he wouldn’t want to take a zero and he was shooting for 11 miles. Truth be told… I was to…He got up to go to the shelter for breakfast after he packed his belongings. I sat up in my sleeping bag and had a few tears come out again.
I DO NOT want to do this. But, I wiped the tears away and started, slowly but surely putting my stuff together. We were going to do this.
We put on our frozen shoes and layered up and were on our way. After a while we finally warmed up and had feeling in our fingers and toes. We even reached the highest mountain yet. Standing Indian Mountain at 5400 feet.
We kept playing a game of cat and mouse with an older man named Chefie. We have seen him at 3 other camp sites and have pasted him multiple times on the trail. He camped next to us and was section hiking.
This morning Cherie woke when we did and wished us fair well as he probably wouldn’t see us again and he said to me.. “little sis, you keep on smiling and you will make it all the way”
Our first mountain today was named Albert, like my brother.. And Albert… Your mountain was very very difficult. It made David and I mad.
And right after it we hit a hundred miles. YAY!!
Today was a long day. We have an over arching goal to make it to the NOC tomorrow so we can stay at a hotel before David has to leave on Monday. My feet were definitely hurting but we made it to the Wayah tower.. The view was incredible and today the weather has been awesome. Much more fun for me.
I am sad to say that Ozzy has lost an eye brow… So now he looks like either he is winking, flirting with the people behind me…. Or intimidating.. like The Rock… “Can you smell what the rock is cooking??” or raising his eye brow in a concerned manner.. “You sure you want to do this”… Really.. It could go either way.. 😂🙈
Yeah, rest in peace lost eyebrow.
