You Don't Always Get What You Want
Saturday April 22, 2017
Mile: 260.3 - 273.4
7:12am - 3:00pm
Wet and Rainy
It was a long, wet, and messy hike into Hot Springs. Batman hiked in to meet us. He does that frequently. He has racked up almost 100 miles so far hiking in then back out with us.
The only thing that kept us going strong was the fact that we were going to rent a hot tub for an hour. After all that's what Hot Springs is known for. The spa has private, outdoor hot tubs filled with the healing waters of Hot Springs. And yes, the tubs are drained and cleaned after each rental.
After our long decent to the cute little town we sent Bruce ahead to secure us a tub time while we walked the blazed through town. But when he met us on the North side he informed us the next opening was 11pm. We nixed the tub idea. We can't always get what we want. We headed back to base camped and ate a home cooked meal and went to bed.
