Thursday – a character building day

Spent last night in a shelter (which I rarely do) because the weather report was worrisome

Here’s what I woke up to

Managed to make it to the town of Port Clinton, where the local barber shop is where hikers and local townspeople meet

I was very warmly welcomed with a hot drink and some donuts.

Frank, the barber, is a hiker and a very kind man.

 The barber shop has about ten chairs in it, and I chatted with some very nice folks waiting to get their hair cut. What a cool place!!

(I did not get my hair cut)

Make sure to pick a healthy tree when you paint your white blaze 

Making the best of a rough day,

    Brutal. Hang in there, Junco. A haircut wouldn’t have killed you.

    Brr-r … How much further before you will have completed the AT?
