After a great week off, Nokey’s mom and dad dropped us off in Duncannon on their way back to Syracuse. We decided during our vacation we were seriously slowing down. Just because we are capable of 20+ miles a day doesn’t mean we have to do it! We are starting off slow and since it’s close to 1:30 already, we are just heading up to the first shelter about 5 miles out of town. We stopped and got milkshakes on the way out of town too for one last treat. Unfortunately for me, milkshakes and hot days do not mix and I got a little sick :( We climbed uphill to a beautiful view of the Susquehanna River (pictured) and then wandered to the shelter. When we got there, we were greeted with “LOOK WHO IT IS, HOLY SHIT!” it was Otto, who we hadn’t seen since Damascus (mile 468)! We spent most of the night catching up with him and meeting a bunch of new hikers we hadn’t met yet, B-1, Comanche, Testament, Pelican, Clifty, and I ran back into Tyvek for the first time since Hot Springs (mile 275). It was a great night catching up with old friends and meeting new ones.
