Left Hiker Heaven at the usual 4h30 together with Influx and the supersiblings. The three of them are on a schedule to finish the entire trail by mid August due to school, so we probably won't see them again after today. You can read Himalaya's - one of the siblings - story <a href='https://sarahhalvorson.wordpress.com' target='_blank'>here</a>.Before leaving in the morning, I weighed my pack. 25lbs. great. 30lbs. in the middle of the ballpark. 35lbs. - what the scale was pointing at - you start to question your motives and life choices. I blame Walmart. Eat the heavy stuff first.
The Hiker Heaven shuttle to the trailhead only starts at 7h so we had to do a mile of roadwalking first to get to the trail.Even though the terrain was easy to walk on, I didn't really enjoy the day. Turn on auto pilot and just do the distance to Casa de Luna. We covered the whole thing - 43 km - by 15h something. My feet hurt. Tomorrow we probably don't do any trail miles. Just the 2 miles in the evening to get from Casa de Luna back to the trail for an early start.
