A large group of us are chilling in the front yard of Hiker Town waiting for the sun to set before we head out to light up the trail! Tonight we will carry glow sticks as a symbol of hope, courage, strength and love in honour of our fellow hiker Patti (aka Glow in the Dark), and our loved ones at home battling extreme challenges life has thrown at them.
A lot of hikers caught up with us today including Pac Man and the buzz here is one of excitement for our first organised group hike throughout the night. The trail leads down the aqueduct for a significant distance so the effect of the glow sticks will be magical.
I was super excited to receive my new gel insoles tonight from Dave in Mount Laguna and have for the first time intentionally superglued moleskin to my feet to keep it on for as long as possible, as per Dr Sole’s recommendation.
