Just wanted to let all of you in Internet Land know that I’m still alive, even though I haven’t blogged in a week. There are two reasons for this; the first being that after hiking all day, it’s hard to find the motivation to lie in my sleeping bag and type away furiously on my little iPhone keyboard thingy when all I want to do is sleep. But laziness aside, the main reason for a lack of updates is that my phone is dying a fast death, and its battery drains faster than, uhhh, a freshly unclogged drain? (Sorry, I haven’t had coffee yet…) I went to the cell phone store a few days ago and they told me that, since my phone is no longer under warranty, it would be $600 ($600!!!!) to buy a new phone. So, that happened. If anyone knows any insider cell phone secrets that would miraculously cure my ailing battery, please let me know!
Also, wordpress recently featured one of my blog posts on their featured blog post thingy (no coffee thing again, sorry…), so suddenly I have a ton of new followers on here. Welcome!! I hope you all enjoy following along as I hike the Appalachian Trail, and I truly appreciate all of your comments.
Hopefully I’ll get this phone battery situation worked out soon and will be able to get all caught up on blog posts. Until then, good morning from Virginia, y’all!
