Day 133: One More Zero

Woke up late and loved it. It's amazing how much just driving can take out of you. Tyler was off at a meeting all morning, so Boss and I drove into town to have breakfast, stop at the post office, get gas and resupply at the grocery store. It was such a nice day, and Plymouth is adorable.

Back at Renee's, we packed up. Boss took care of some business on the phone while I also made a few calls. We had the option to lay low at the house and leave around 3pm, so we took that option. It was nice to recover from the whirlwind weekend. When Tyler got back, he invited us to stay another night and enjoy a grilled dinner and a few beers. We couldn't resist. Does that make us bad hikers...?

Tyler grilled us an amazing feast of sausage, pork tenderloin, steak tips, peppers, asparagus, and garlic bread. Soooooo delicious! Thank you, Tyler!! And if it hadn't been for a small, bizarre accident with a knife, it would've been a perfect evening. While we were eating outside, I somehow dropped a steak knife so that it landed on my right foot - stabby side down. With the help of gravity, I stabbed my own foot. Who does that?

It bled a bit more than was comfortable, but I kept pressure on it, and I'm pretty sure it's only skin deep. It's doing fine now, and I think it'll be fine in the morning. Maybe a bit sore? We plan to leave Plymouth really early to get back to the trail to make up for not hiking this afternoon, so I hope it'll feel good. I'm sure it will.

Hope the legs will be ready to go after 5 whole days off. Looking forward to a great next stretch of trail. Bring on the Whites!
