Trying on some new shoes with Robs help

Button - AT - Apr 17, 2012 - Shoes!
Back on the trail and in true outdoor style, am snugly cooped up in my tent while it rains outside.

So we are on our mission to catch the Ducks, today went well (despite a slightly later start than anticipated - Loops takes FOREVER to get himself sorted it seems, but will forgive him as he let me hog the tv and watch the Eureka premier last night - Colin love still going strong! ) and we have made some average miles giving my new shoes a chance to get broken in (and wet and muddy).

The hills as always sucked today and we only just made it into camp before the skies opened. Upside - rain has made frogs appear, am listening to one of nature's best chorus' as I type.
Sidebar - speaking of nature I was incredibly disturbed and highly offended to discover that while watching Frozen Planet the other night, David Attenborough's voice over has been replaced here in the US by Alec Baldwin. THIS IS SERIOUSLY WRONG!
Sort it out America!

Moving on.
So walking was ok today though we have now added dinner at Dillard's Restaurant and a trip to see The Lucky One at the cinema to Loop's tab for yelling at me about me feet this morning. He had his angry face on and everything. Truth be told he's quite scary when he wants to be. In all fairness he was just being concerned and makes it all better when he smiles and apologises.
On the feet front, trying the new shoes and fingers crossed.

Feels weird not to be with the Ducks tonight. Kind of quiet. Even more so sitting in my tent alone.
I have decided that tomorrow I am going to write 'A day in the life of a thru hiker', tonight the idea of my warm bag and reading Game of Thrones is just too appealing to pass up.

Buenos noches....
