Day 127: not quite zero in Sisters.
It’s not really a zero, we DID hike out. A lovely trail angel named Blanche picked Mango, Hawt Pocket and myself up and took us to the trail. But, en route to the trail, I realized that wedding planning and final touches were not going as smoothly as I had hoped, and needed to be dealt with. But, we were already in the car, so we got dropped off and hiked out. But, less than two miles in, I realized I was not only far too stressed out about it but it could also mean financial damage that we may not be able to remedy later.
At first we planned to hike the 17 miles to highway 20, get off there, and come back to town. But, the further we walked, the more it made sense to turn back. And then my headphones stopped working. Game over.
We told HP our plan, and turned back. We hitched back to town, crammed back into the motel room with Grandma, and tried to get things sorted out.
Alaska is currently on fire, and therefore the lodge has neither internet nor power.
Hey, guys, don’t try to plan any major life events from the trail.
