14 years ago today I hiked the most miles I've
ever hiked in a day; 28 miles from Thomas Knob to
Damascus. This was a dreary, cloudy, misty day.
100 yards or so from one of the Hwy 58 crossings
just north of Damascus I had a stare down with a
bobcat. It was one of the top-5 highlights of the
hike. I smoked a cigar as I hiked that last
half-mile along the highway into town. There was a
drizzle that was trying really hard to be a rain.
After I got set up in The Place we all went over
to Quincy's for pizza. Somehow there were about 8
of us there: Me, Lucky Luke and Calamity Jane,
Sundown, Groovin' Moose and the two guys with the
two dogs (I can never remember their names) and
maybe a couple of locals.
