Doing 26 mile days starts to wear on you both physically and mentally. Doing 18-20s made it seem like there wasn't enough time in the day, 26 is a whole new ball game. But we are making some good progress which is nice. You also get to catch up with people you haven't seen for hundreds of miles.
The half way mark is coming up at 1330 and it's one of the major mile markers for me. That and getting out of California.
Tahoe was amazing
