Started a little late today, about 8:30. I got a text from my friend Bob last night saying he had somehow gotten behind me, which was really tough! I was hoping he’d catch up to me today on Hot Springs, about 15 miles from where I started. My sister came into town and I got a lot of great food and trail magic from her as well! About 7 pm, I get a text from Bob saying he was in town and it blew my mind! We’re planning either a Nero or zero tomorrow depending on how we feel. We had an awesome reunion and I’m really excited to have a trail partner again to say the least! These blazes are on the sidewalk in Hot Springs, as the trail runs down the main street.
