So I bought a battery at Fleet Farm, and stood in the parking lot and installed it. No problems except that the hold-down bracket was a pill. Then I realized I needed groceries at the trailer (as well as lunch by that time). There was an Aldi just across the drive. Score!
Then I had to find a post office, and a place in the shade to eat my lunch, and finally I headed back to Sunny.
I slept the rest of the afternoon. And tomorrow I am resting. Not a working rest day, just resting.
The time with my friends was great, and one of the hard sections of the trail is done. However, the cold, hard fact is that I've only walked 39 miles in all of August, and I'm not ready to re-start the hiking yet. My feet hurt, and I am weary. I need to get my head back around this goal.
