Hiked a relatively easy number if miles today to get into Drakesbad around 2:30pm. That place was amazing. We were greeted by the owner, Ed, with a big hug, and then given hiker kits which included a towel, washcloth, soap, laundry bag, and loaner clothes! We enjoyed the food, hot spring fed pool, and general hospitality of the place. Amazing!
The quote below, taken from the front of the PCT register at Drakesbad says it all:
Wander a whole summer if you can. Thousands of God's blessings will search and soak you as if you were a sponge, and the big days will go by uncounted.
If you are business-tangled and so burdened by duty that only weeks can be got out of the heavy laden year, give a month at least.
Time will not be taken from the sum of life. Instead of shortening, it will indefinitely lengthen it and make you truly immortal.
