goal was to get in about 25 miles, do part of the copper camp loop. got down to mcfarland canyon after 8.5 miles and ran into a few azt thru's. Bird had hiked from mexico (now at the 400 mile, halfway point) with only one pair of socks. i happened to have a nice pair of barely used Farm to Feet merinos, so i became a trail angel and gifted her my socks, to help her journey. E.T. was a fresh out of college long trail hopeful, and ate like a pubescent boy. so i gifted him some peanut M&M's and a MRE i dragged into camp. Dad Bod, who was my age trying to keep up with these whippersnappers, was prolly hungry too! so i gifted him a nice white bread salami, ham, bacon, cheese sando. all three were great to hang with. i wanted to push on, but got about 1/3 mile up the sheep camp trail and bailed back to mcfarland. it was pretty gnarly, overgrown. so i re-joined my azt friends and we set up a nice fire for the eve. two more thru's came by, one who had finished her CDT trek just recently, was determined to keep going. i guess a 15 mile day in the mazzies is weak sauce, for the pros. finally some scraggly looking character who was lagging, came running into camp wearing little huaraches, he is doing the entire 800 mile azt in these ridiculous sandals. (brings teva-joe to mind) and we all stayed the night in colder-than-expected temps, down to about 42. a good morning and high spirits had us hang for an hour, then part ways. i was to go home, they were to go north. another 400 miles north (if GC re-opens). also passed by Prince, Crop-Top, and Boomer on the way out. fun chatting with the thru's - i like their style. someday...
