Days 81 and 82 – Zero day and Bake Oven Knob to PA 248

We took another zero on day 81 (July 5) to let Trippy recover further from the effects of the Lyme.

On day 82 (July 6), we did a relatively short stretch (~9 miles) that we needed to finish between Bake Oven Knob Road and PA 248 at Lehigh Gap. We hiked up to Bake Oven Knob with Packy and Tapey, aka Ma and Pa Hnatow.

Thanks again for the lift, guys!

The rest of the hike was uneventful and went fast. It was warm, but it was nice to not hike in 95% humidity.

The next few days the plan is to slackpack through the roughly 55 miles we have left between Duncannon and Port Clinton.
