Early to rise. Breakfast and out the door. Sue & Jere will join PTD on the trail today.
Saw a bear near the trail, deer. Something funny! Later in the day PTD almost walked into one of the deer after he filled his water bottle. The deer was just there. Later that night they also had deer hanging out at their campsite watching them eat dinner. Hoping for some I am sure. Not afraid of people in the SNP.
Pontail and the Flying Scotsmen reached the 900 mile mark today. Sue & Jere were there w/them as they crossed the mark. Yahoo!
They stayed at Big Meadows Campground – very nice campground. Not primitive. They had bath houses. PTD just loves those flush toilets.
PTD, Sue, Jere and the Flying Scotsmen all did 17 miles today. Way to go!!! Hard day for them but they kept right up. PTD really didn’t slow his pace for the newbies. They are really great sports. He says he would hike w/them again in a heartbeat!
