Short day today, 7 miles into Glencliff. I saw an adolescent black bear briefly when it ran away from me into the forest. We passed a guy, Swift, who is doing some kind of speed record attempt with a big support crew and multiple cameramen. Anyways, it was quite a show right before we got to town.
In town we met So Way and EBrake, more southbounders who we have seen many logbook entries from. We watched them tackle a 11.5lb pizza (finish it in 1.5 hours and it’s free!). They failed and it looked painful, but they mostly seemed to be having fun with it.
My Kindle officially is dead to me, but I gave it to a northbounder who said he’d try to revive it. I ordered a new one…
Megan: I had been thinking about doing this too, but Paula also suggested it so I’m adding it in!
