I met with the owner last night, and will be doing gear testing for the Trek Pouch.
We installed the Trek Pouch on both my poles this morning (about a 2 minute process!), I am looking forward to having these on my journey. Such a simple, yet useful idea!

A big thanks to the other companies I am talking with currently - I am looking forward to working out the small details, so we can test out, and spread the word about these products that will make being outdoors more enjoyable for everyone!!

Tuesday April 8,

Need to kill some time before arriving in Hot Springs, so going to stay at Standing Bear Hostel one more night. Really tired of staying in "towns", and after my visit in Hot Springs - I plan to keep out of towns for now on. But for now, it is either hike only 7 mile days (That would drive me nuts!), or zero here and do 10 mile days into Hot Springs - I think I can deal with 10 mile days easier than 7 mile days.

Was talking to a fellow hiker, (Nineteen) I noticed he had a Pink Panther doll on his pack, so I asked him why. His father had found it on a hike up to Big K, he brought it down and gave it to his son when he was young. Nineteens father passed away years ago, never doing his thru-hike, so he is hiking the Pink Panther up to Big K - in remembrance of his father, and so his father will also get to do his thru-hike.

Star Gazer went to the doctors, she took a fall yesterday. Looks like she pulled a muscle in her leg. She will have another week off the trail :-( . Hopefully it will only be a week, so she can keep up with her group.

Other than this stuff, just sitting and talking, playing with the dog/cat, and chickens.

Looking forward to getting back on the trail - and staying out of towns, after Hot Springs N.C. !
Keeping in the woods is the focus of this adventure from here on out!
