7/10/18 Day 352 AT Day 112 A Day off at the Parent's house with a laptop and a car

July 15, 2018



Miles: 0

Steps: 9,532

Elevation Gain: 0


My friend came and picked me up pretty early.  Murph was feeling a bit better and headed back to the trail by herself.  I hope to see her again soon.


Bernard is one of my very best friends all the way back to elementary school.  He’s now a pilot based out of NYC.  I was thinking of visiting him in the city but he quickly stated that he was headed upstate and would be happy to pick me up.  Without thinking or hesitating, I went ahead and said yes.  There are a few things I really need to use a laptop to update my website, etc., so this seemed like a great opportunity.  As soon as I got in the car I felt a bit weird though: why was I doing this, and I wanted to spend time with Murph, too…


Too late now, so off I’m whisked to the area of Upstate, NY I grew up in (or close anyway, where my parents live now is a couple of towns over).  I quickly hopped in my car and attacked a long list of errands.  Buy trekking poles, sleeping pad, do some grocery shopping, clean my sleeping bag, buy Murph a couple of items she needs, update website, etc. etc. etc.


Great to see my Mom and Stepdad.  Ate a lovely dinner of Salmon, Macaroni Salad, and Corn on the cob with them.  I stayed up pretty late on my laptop; writing, updating, brainstorming, lots of -ing words.
