I accidentally stole one of the Anderson’s Hippy Daycare Hawaii shirts. Plus side is it’s stylin’. Downside is an extra 7 ounces. Will get returned!
(I returned it by mail and later found The Grad wearing it in 2014. I had many hikers sign it in 2013. Their signatures were still there, though faint.)
Little did I know I had also picked up a righteous flu at the Andersons. I was about to have my ass kicked with fevers, coughs and malaise for three weeks up trail… Plus I was just about to encounter a mountain lion on trail during my first — and last — night hike.
