Wednesday–April 28, 2021
Location–Laughing Heart Hostel, Hot Springs, AT Mile 274.4
A much needed day of rest. I manage some breakfast. Feeling stronger again in the afternoon.
But early evening the fever returns, and what little I’ve eaten today departs abruptly, top and bottom.
Julie and husband, Jon, and their grandson, Brantley Colt Stonewall Barnes, comes to visit, to bring me a brand new pair of Oboz Sawtooth shoes. My old Oboz had a bunch of miles on them before starting this trek, plus over 700 more now. Just a blessing to have new shoes. Thanks, Julie, I remain in your debt!
If today you are a little bit better than you were yesterday, then that’s enough.
And, if tomorrow you are a little bit better than you were today, then that’s enough.
