A very relaxing zero day. I started hiking the Foothills trail march 4th, finished it on the 9th with an 11 mile hike, jumped on the AT @Springer March 10th and this is my first well deserved zero day.
I ate ham and eggs for breakfast, has station pizza for lunch from the village gas station. I ate a freeze dried meal getting hit water from the complimentary coffee machine in the lobby. For dessert, Dragons Milk 20 proof ale aged in oak barrels, 2012 vintage. MuffinMan adopted in for a resupply. I thought they he was I'm front if me. SmoothSailing is another Hiker that is doing 20 mile days also. He has attempted a thru hike before, doing over half of three trail. His wife is here fore a visit.
A few others I meet are unbelievably ill prepared, old men carrying 50 or 60#s and making 6 miles per day struggling. All are having the time of their life.
GrayJay and BearCharmer stopped in for a meal.
