The route was very beautiful this morning. The terrain is starting to change now that we're farther away from the coast. Much to the excitement of some (and the dismay of others) we actually hit some hills today. I am pumped!! New terrain means that we are getting farther into our journey across be country.
I've got a lot of pictures from today!! Here they are:
During lunch, a bunch of us went swimming in a pond near the lunch stop. It was a pretty gnarly pond with lots of gunk and miss but the temperature was perfect and it was awesome!! Sooo refreshing!
Today, the group really put their "Donation Magic" to work. Donation Magic, DM for short, means basically that we get stuff for free by telling people a out what we're doing. We try to DM things for the entire group, specifically food, because any food we don't have to buy for the group means more money can be donated to our affordable housing cause. Today, we got two dozen donuts, two pounds of coffee, Panera bread for tomorrow, a bunch of granola bars from Starbucks, and frozen yogurt. Awesome!!!
I am so tired. 45 miles tomorrow and 5:30 a.m. wake up call. Goodnight!!
