I said goodbye to my hiking group of 2 months a couple of days ago. It has been different without them, but I can now hike the schedule I want. With the warmer weather, I have been waking up at 5:30 and am hiking by 6:30. They weren’t too keen on that idea and I didn’t like waiting around camp till after 8. I also manage to get a lot more miles in comfortably by myself. I do miss their company though. My body seems to be in tip-top shape, I hiked 25 miles yesterday, including over 6000 ft. of elevation change, and still felt good at the end of the day.
