Slow going again today, in spite of excellent weather. I got a late start due to partiers keeping me up late. Couldn't seem to get fired up until I stopped for coffee at noon. Even so, I didn't make it into Jefferson City as I had hoped, but only into Tebbetts.
The trail Web site had indicated a campground here, with Jim's Bar and Grill as the contact. But Jim recommended I check out the hostel next door instead: just $5 a night to sleep indoors with hot showers, a microwave oven, coffee, etc. It's fantastic! What a great find!
