Good news I woke up this morning pretty late and when I was packing up camp and ready to go I came across two people at the very first three minutes of my walk and they had three lighters, so they graciously gave me one of them. The trail provides. I decided that today I wanted to get to camp just before the thunderstorm that was forecasted for today would start so I would be hiking from 8:30 to 3 PM max as the thunderstorm was going to be starting between two and three. Today was a decently easy day in terms of terrain, but more miles right off the bat than I have been used to so of course I’m going to make sure that my hip and my foot is OK as I hike throughout the day. I stopped for the first time after 4 miles for a little snack break before that I ate one of my honey buns as I was walking. Today was mainly downhill. There’s a few sense that were no more than a mile so like I said a very easy day in terms of elevation gain and terrain. I walked into camp where there was four different spots. You could camp and I started setting up my tent just as I heard the first boom of thunder. I quickly went to go get my water put my feet in the creek for a few minutes as the rain started to come down and then quickly walked back to my tent and made myself my late lunch around 3 PM. I spent the day listening to an audiobook, watching my show, playing some solitaire and listening to the rain, bounce off my tent. I also took a late afternoon nap. Tomorrow I know I have more easy terrain, and I get to Stehekin to eat some baked goods at their famous bakery. So I was pretty excited. I slept like a baby tonight.
