Finished my slackpack today. Did 11 miles in 5.5 hours. Was nice to hike without the heavy pack. Spent some time talking with Grim who manages Uncle Johnny’s. He is definitely a trail character. He says before he started hiking 16 years ago, he was a successful salesman and entrepeneur, with a degree in chemistry. After he started hiking, he says that he couldn’t go back to the corporate world and that he started caring about the world around him and the people in it. He has an interesting story. Perhaps one day I shall write a book about trail characters.
