Well it happened.......

Mike and I got sucked in to what's called to the 'Doyle Vortex' We woke up this morning feeling rested and relaxed. We loafed around all day, shot some pool, had some food....before we knew it, it was 7 oclock! way too late to start hiking, so we are spending another night at the Doyle. It's cheap, comfortable, and the owners go out of their way to make you feel at home.

We are way ahead of schedule and had already planned to cut down on our mileage. We will do a huge day tomorrow (30 miles) to catch up w/ Team America and the JHP.

We're 40 miles short of the halfway point. The thru hiker tradition at this junction is to eat a half gallon of ice cream in one sitting. We can't wait to give it a shot. We are both predicting success.
