Got up and got moving to the road then walked into South Mountain,Pa (3 mile round trip) to pick up a maildrop and walked past a giant old mill complex that was half abandoned and half converted into a YDC type place. Got to the post office then went to the bar to get some sodas for the walk. Met back up with Poho at the trail and pushed through some pretty easy terrain to a park with a pool area and concessions. We got chicken tenders and Gatorade then kept killing miles to a shelter and decided to push on to the halfway point and the shelter after that! Half gallon challenge in the morning!

woke up and got packed upbput on crocs because shoes and socks were still wet and headed to the pine grove furnace state park to take on the half gallon challenge. We arrived after hiking past several private cabins and limping up to the picnic tables. A few of our group had already started there ice cream so I went inside to decide on my flavors. I settled on 1.5 qts of neapolitan and a pint of cotton candy five cream. I got stuck about halfway through the last pint then pushed through and drank the rest of the ice cream as it melted ad finished in just under an hour feeling queasy but successful! Then Clark and I looked for a shuttle to duncannon as we both had injuries that we didn't need to make worse. We got a ride from Gary and he bought us drinks at the Doyle Hotel. We got a room and hung out with Clark in town until we all crashed at about 12.
