Last night I didn't get to Scout and Frodos place until after 10 pm. Decided to stick with my early morning departure which involved getting up at 5 am, breakfast at 520 am and caravan leaving for the border promptly at 6 am. Literally a caravan of like 4 or 5 vehicles all making their way to the border. There must have been at least 50 people at the border all taking pictures and signing the register. Crazy!

Before I left Scout and Frodos I weighed my pack on their hanging digital scale. About 22.5 lbs with all my food and water. Yeah!

Tons of people to meet on the trail today. Some going all the way to lake morena some not. After the last 4 miles seemed to drag on and on, I arrived just after 5 pm. The feet did pretty good. Only a small hint of a blister which I put some dental floss through. More about that later. I think my left knee hurts more than anything.

I found 2009 trail friends here Tom, Tori and Big John. Thanks for the pie! Finished off the evening with a great film about the Appalachian Trail.
