Day 128: One more zero…

Tue. 8/28/13
0 miles, currently at Mile 2007.4 at Santiam Pass


A day for just the two of us.

Ahh, another day in Bend. After a scrumptious breakfast of one of the best scones I’ve eaten and cinnamon french toast at McKay’s Cottage, we swung by the post office so I could mail my old backpack back to Granite Gear. Then we dropped Tears off at the trailhead.

It was a pretty uneventful day, which was the idea. I got all of my hiker chores done yestetday, so all I had to do today… was relax.

I ate a tub of cottage cheese… that was a pretty exciting thing! It’s been my biggest craving, which is so weird. I’ll take the 50+ grams of protein that goes with it, though!


Takes about three minutes to eat one of these...

The most crazy thing I did today was get a haircut. Aloha was going in for one so I just went with. I didn’t think I’d do anything like this the whole trip, but I’m glad I did. She just took a couple of inches off, getting rid of old, snarly ends. It feels really good, and I can still put it in braids.

Then as Aloha drove around to pick up snacks for our hotel-room-lounging, I napped in the car. I was tired! I even drooled all over myself!

Once back at the hotel, it was a marathon of sitcom reruns and mindless TV as we inhaled Chinese delivery, potato chips and some wine. It was nice to sit on a comfy bed and just chill out.

Tomorrow I’ll get back on trail and try to hike like a maniac to catch up to Tears. I pray that breaking in a new backpack doesn’t cause any problems! You’ll hear about it here if it does. :)

Tonight I love feeling relaxed.




Keeping up on current events, reading The Onion that Randall sent.

Thanks for reading and being a part of my journey!

With love,
