Starting to settle in

Where do I begin… My first three days back on the trail after my little break were simply amazing.

It was very very easy finding a ride coming out of Helen and back to the trail. I’m pleased with my hitching skills so far. (I didn’t even have a chick with me!) I continued to start my day of hiking and was overwhelmed by the amount of “trail magic” that I experienced.

*Trail magic is basically when you receive any kind of unexpected awesomeness related to the trail. It could come in the form of people handing out ice cold refreshments at a road crossing, someone giving you a ride to their house and cooking you a fresh meal, or even just a fellow hiker giving you something he doesn’t need.

It has been awesome to see how many good people are out on this trail. We joke around out here about it but it’s really just a bunch of different people, young and old, all doing the same thing, with little to know problems at all. Just walkin.

Anyways… I feel like I’m really starting to get a rhythm and the knee is feeling better. I’m taking it alot easier than when I started out, and my knees are definitely thanking me for that.

I just wanted to tell everyone I’m very thankful for the thoughts/prayers I cannot begin to tell you guys how much the support means to me. It keeps me going. Special thanks to Kirsten n Larry for the HUGE mail package. With Katie and you guys, I now have enough food to get me to Maine!

My next stop Is about 5 days from today… So expect an update then. (ok mom)
