I live in Florida and my husband and I stayed here too. The man who owns this place said to start our section hike in hot springs and hike back there . Our hike was awful my husband left me and was miserable the whole ttime.Where do you find such cool people to hike with ? Did you know them before ?How much does your pack weigh? You are an inspiration to watch , that’s what I intended on my hike to be in the moment there .Maybe if you hike the trail again someday. You can let me know and I will give it another go with you. By the time we hiked from Hot springs to lemon gap remember we hiked backwards I couldn’t walk I was so sore.Thank god these people were joy riding and gave us a ride back to our car at that hostel. I did learn not to over pack I guess I packed both of us like we were going to get lost. our packs were 45lbs and im 5’3 .I just wanted to tell you your doing awesome and I watch your videos .Great job you go girl ——–Tracie
I hate to hear you had a bad hike, but you should definitely try again some day! I met all of the folks I hike with out here on the trail. I started alone! My pack weighs about 28lbs now, but was around 37lbs when I started (with 2 L of water and 5 days of food). Maybe getting your pack weight down would make your hiking more enjoyable. There are a lot of great tips available for doing so on the web. Thanks for your comments and for following along!
