|The beard gave him super human strength to walk 24 miles.|
We wanted a very early start so we could get done at a reasonable time in the day. We met at the cemetery (our destination) and left a vehicle there and drove the other vehicle 24 miles to where our journey would start. I had some concerns with my choice of foot wear because I hadn't worn my hiking boots in several months and they were feeling a little stiff. So I decided to go ahead and create a full drop bag with water, socks, shirt, and shoes to leave at the half way point, just in case.

|Here is the manually added route on my Runkeeper.|
In the end we both made it. I had a lot of fun and hope to do something similar again in the future. Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) thru-hike anyone?
Interesting finds on the hike:
26 wire hangers. (in bunches of 4-7 hangers every couple of miles)
1 pair of loafers
1 pair of dirty underwear. (sadly, they weren't my size.)
$1.20 in change.
1 20 cent euro coin. (biggest surprise)
1 dirty diaper
20 giant empty cheese puff containers. (somebody really likes their cheesy poofs)
We also found a scary amount of beer and liquor bottles along the road. It is unsettling knowing that I am sharing a road on a daily basis with people that think its ok to drink and drive.
Now back to running and training for Sheriff's 10k trail run.
