I have not heard back from the lady from Tennessee who was looking for a southbound thru-hiker. We chatted via email several times then on the phone once. I am not sure if our talk scared her off or what. I am leery of hiking with someone who has so little experience. I don't know if she will show up and I am almost afraid to email and ask. I have heard from one of the other people down on the calender on Trailplace.com as starting on the same day as me. I am not sure we will hike together but we will probably bump into each other along the way. I actually think I don't want much company during the day but I think that company at night will be really nice. I think it will be fun talking about the day to people who have walked the same path as I did at about the same time.
I is supposed to rain tonight. Supposedly, tomorrow will be hot and muggy but hopefully less so. I think it will be hard having to close the window tonight. Since it will rain, the window will need to be staggered and that reduces the air flow big time. I think it will be quite a hot night sleeping tonight.
Had a few inches of hair cut off today. I did get a before picture. I think I will get an after picture just in case I decide to get it cut off somewhere on the trail. It really wasn't a very drastic cut but hopefully it will be enough to not irritate the hell out of me. I really am not sure how I will take care of long hair on the trail. And while I really like my long hair, I don't think I will hesitate to hack it off if it becomes a problem. I really do want to go to Arisia next year with long hair and I also hope I can make up the 4-5 inches in that time. My hair was just long enough to wrap the braids halfway around my head and make a really cute crown. I will post a pic of me with the before shot sometime soon, I hope.
