Day 5 – Annas awesome hiking sticks

Backpack blogging:
make big!

On day two we figured out Anna’s shoes were a half size too small too late – she’d already lost most of the skin on both her heels. So for the rest of this trip Anna’s been hiking in her flip-flops! In the rain, through mud and sludgy steep downhills, no arch support and a 45lb backpack on. Without her nifty sticks there were a few scary slips that might have ended our dream of finishing. Backpacking in flip flops crazy? Yes. Hardcore – more than a wee bit. I’ve never seen anyone so sure-footed.
