Knees a little sore

I got dropped off at about 3:30 at the end of a road which stopped about 200 feet before the Maine Junction. It was a little hilly for the next couple of miles and sharp pains began to come up. I had stretched out my legs and done everything that I thought was right but I always end up doing something wrong and getting hurt. I took some Ibuprofen and figured that food and sleep would help.

When I got to Stony Brook Shelter there were a bunch of people. I realized that I was in the middle of the SOBO bubble because there were 10 SOBOs and only 2 NOBOs, myself and Mowgli, who just graduated from high school and looked just like Mowgli from the Jungle Book.

Earlier in the day I bought some pizza and took some of it on the trail so I didn't have to cook any dinner. I had some bread with me too and passed the items around to everyone. I found that pizza can be good cold.

The Appalachian Trail (A.T.) is more than 2,175-mile long footpath stretching through 14 eastern states from Maine to Georgia. Conceived in 1921 and first completed in 1937, it traverses the wild, scenic, wooded, pastoral, and culturally significant lands of the Appalachian Mountains. Learn more:
