Naked River’s house – 0 miles
Sleeping in a bed after being on the ground for a while feels strange to me. I didn’t wake up particularly rested, but hungry. 😂 I guess the hunger has finally hit me and is asking to be appeased at least every two hours.
The day started lazy, with getting updates on everything on social media, then a few hours at the local pool, with some good but expensive pizza.
Then came the errands, and I actually managed to find a pair of shorts that I like and that will hopefully hold up better. Also bought a new bottle of DEET, biggest size I could find 😅
Food shopping for dinner and then I made Thai food, which turned out pretty good. It’s always strange working in someone else’s kitchen, you never know where anything is and it all takes a lot longer than it should.
So dinner ended up being served at around 10pm, followed by watching ‘The Fountain’ and then a nice long soak in the hot tub with some pretty intense conversations.
I guess we didn’t go to bed until around 2 in the morning…..zero days have a completely opposite schedule to hiking days, where I sometimes fall asleep at 8pm and get up with the first rays of sunshine.
Second zero was spent lounging on the couch, watching movies and eating leftovers 😁
Back to the trail tomorrow, even though I have this really weird pain in my Achilles tendon. Hopefully that will take care of itself.
Keeping you posted….
PS: Naked River, you are a beautiful and generous soul and I am so glad to know you 😘 Thank you so much for everything!
