Knee felt much better today, was cloudy for most of the day and finally turned to lightning and rain fairly quickly at about 4pm. Did 18 miles today I believe which is more than I have been doing recently due to knee concerns. Met up with Larry who stocks the water cache here and hiked with him for a bit. He is a very nice person with an impressive background. His first words were “did your parents ever tell you not to accept candy from strangers?” As he offered me candy. Quite amusing. He is a well known trail angel so I took the offer.
