CUMULATIVE: 188.5 mi
Self-care day, all the way. I cleaned and cared for my friction blister from earlier in the trip. Been difficult to take care of it on the trail, so it's been getting infected. Cleaned it up really well, soaked it in epsom salt intermittently, and generally let it breath to promote healing for the last leg. April took me into town to resupply and run some errands. And I got to meet up with Mischa and Claire, two good friends from Open Sky, for dinner. Burlington is a cute little town of just 40,000 but still the largest city in Vermont. I really loved my short visit. And a huge shoutout to the Hillman family for their incredible hospitality!
