Today I uncharacteristically said goodbye to everyone before heading off to resupply . Waiting and her Spec Forces boyfriend Phil offered to help get a ride to town with me. In route we crossed the longest suspension bridge on the trail where hikers are challenged to jump down into three James river. No way I thought but “coincidences” were just beginning starting with walking across a challenge with a SF dude and his girl. I don’t know how old is too
old to plunge 30 feet but today I was old enough.
After we got out Onesimus walked up to us in the middle of the bridge and offered us a ride to town in his camper. He is a two time thru hiker who was also a spec ops army. Coincidences? Today is a good day. We came to town, I completed the trifecta, I got an Italian sub, ice cream and recharged my phone. Back to the trail for more coincidences. when life is simplified the coincidences become clear.
