Journal Entry: February 26, Night, February 27

February 26, Night

Lying in bed at the hostel, I’m starting to think I might need to step off trail for a week to recover. I’ll be the first casualty of the 2017 NoBo class, but I really don’t think I can make it to Unicoi Gap, which would be where I could step off into another town. I’m pissed that I’ll have to, but if I don’t, I’ll be forced off later, likely permanently.


February 27

I had a bagel with honey for breakfast as I sit here and wait for my ride home.I kind of feel like a failure, but I know I’ll be back in a week or two. And since I can barely put my pack on at this point, I really need the time to heal.

Anyway, I changed out my shoes, and they are far more comfortable than the ones I started with. So now I’m in men’s Oboz, rather than women’s Solomen shoes. I like the width on these, and there’s more toe room, so hopefully I won’t lose a toenail as soon.


Ta for a week!
