Beautiful day for town R&R with the other thru-hikers, eating my face off, and catching up in my journal. Spent most of the day running errands around town and going back and forth to the outfitter across the street from Dave's Place Hostel where I'm staying. Switched out my cookware for a smaller, lighter titanium pot and also bought a new tent to replace my single-wall tent that was having condensation problems. Practiced setting up the new one in the yard of the hostel, and cut my existing groundsheet to fit the new tent shape. Thanks to my friend Kara and my Aunt Carol for the care packages! Great fun chowing down with all the gang at the Side Track Cafe.
