Max Patch!

Mile 257.0—Roaring Fork ShelterTuesday, April 9

Ohmygod, it poured last night. I packed up in a driving rain, and it rained all morning. The sun cracked at about noon, I spread out in the leaves to dry things (hiker trash laundromat, lol), and the sky was gorgeous for Max Patch at around 3.

I’m at the shelter after Max Patch. The usual suspects are here: Berky, Trotter, Strider, Fern, Unicorn, Jayrock. Only one guy, and none of the young guys. My theory is that they all zeroed at Standing Bear to get a good Max Patch day tomorrow, when the weather is supposed to be excellent. Or maybe they’re up there now.

Me, I’m pushing toward Hot Springs. I hope to get there early Thirsday morning for a nero. I reserved a room in town for Thursday night. Food!! 😀

For what it’s worth, Friday is the day I pass myself. I was in Hot Springs on April 12 in ‘13, and I’ll be there on April 12 this year.

One thought on “Max Patch!”

  1. Another way of looking at Hot Springs on April 12: 2013 – Day 37 – 7.4 mpd / 2019 – Day 24 – 11.5 mpd. Wow! A reincarnated woman. Learned a little secret the other day as to what makes your blogs so interestingly pithy and earthy … MFA in Creative Writing. I smell a book coming in your future … maybe even a movie. Save all those old blogs. Javelin
