Hiking is easy when you've only got a 9-mile day planned, a restaurant at the end and it's all downhill.
I reached Callahan's at about 10:00, got a shower and did laundry. G-Man and I had lunch and met a few other hikers coming in. He had his all-you-can-eat spaghetti for lunch, resupplied and hiked on. I had a monte cristo sandwich, a deep-fried ham, turkey and cheese sandwich with fries. I figured a sandwich wouldn't get me too full before dinner, and since it's fried, it's just what a hiker needs. Dinner was a salad, bread and 3 full plates of spaghetti. I camped out in the back yard.
