Having a short day today was good. My left shin I believe was still hurting. Even though I was in Pie Town I never had pie. Once I ate at the cafe I was full and even though it was only like a 5 minute was I was too lazy to go back when I was hungry again. I had enough of my own food to eat.This was the first time on the trail where I was surrounded by a large number of hikers, not counting the start. It was both fun and exciting but at the same time I wanted my space.When you’re in the woods a lot of the time it’s just you or maybe one other. You feel like the world is yours. When you get to a hostel like the Toaster House you become common. Everyone has a similar story and is doing the same thing you are. It can become a battle of willings if one doesn’t stay in check. At the same time it’s a place to bond and come together and share one’s experience with like minds.
