Miles hiked: 13.6
After breakfast, the others went to the grocery store to resupply. I headed to the liquor store in search of an ATM, but found it out of cash, so I just bought a beer instead. I waited out front of the grocery store sipping my Modelo at 9:00am.
When my hiker family was done shopping, a gentleman offered us all a ride back up Darling Rd. to Hiker Heaven.
We just hung out much of the day chilling in various areas around this special place. The day was filled with many highlights.

Most of the group powered past me, and I was left to my pain alone. Anytime my body starts hurting a lot, I fear it may be the end of my hike. The idea that I’d have to leave this greatest adventure of my life and all these people I’ve grown to love just broke my heart. I sat right next to the trail and cried. Chilly Bin was slightly ahead of me and she knew I was struggling today. She waited around a couple bends in the trail for me which was really heart warming to see when I hobbled up with tears still in my eyes.
