Even though we met back up with Phillip and Download, our hiking habits differ quite a bit. The majority of people hikes alone or in pair. Groups of four or more are extremely rare.Roadrunner, Autopilot and I left in the morning, planning to do another 30 mile day. Ever since we got back together, 30 seems to be the new 20. Our hiking speeds and break routines are very similar, doing fairly big miles daily.
At a highway crossing mid afternoon, we left a note about our campspot plans. When we were in our tents ready for sleep well after 20h, to our big surprise, Download and Phillip walked by together with Buns who is doing a 40 mile day.
