Met 3 other thru hikers in town who are fighting for permits too. Jim, Mike, and Michael finally got their green light and will be sharing their first camp with Toek and I. And here I thought the CDT would be solo from the start! Today we goofed off, played Frisbee, and looked over maps. I coughed up more $ for another night in the hostel since it was raining, but really because I hate camping. Thought about going for a day hike to kill some time but I don’t like walking either. Luckily I love drinking quarts of tomato juice and petting stray town dogs since that was the highlight of the day.
