International AT continues

Morning walks herself in with a smile and clear skies. Very glad i cabined last night. Walk to the Wilderness Variety Store to get a quick bite and a drink. When i enter i see a grill and immediately play upon my indolent night and opt for a hot breakfast. I engage in conversation with three older gentlemen and am suddenly an hour later in my morning. I don’t really care. Hiking completely alone has changed the motivation and i really don’t have to be anywhere. Hell, i am already a THRU - HIKER!!  The guys insist on buying my breakfast and i move on pondering their gentle convivial lifestyle. A little more hitching and lots of gravel atv trails and i get to the worst shelter ever. The local atv and snowmobile crowd need to grow up. Trash, graffiti and stupidness make me sad and angry.
