The Ghost of Little Ottie

Tin-man's pad was so loud last night! An inflatable air mattress, every time he moved it sounded like someone was grinding up rice crispies. Ugh.
Everyone left the shelter in a big group, but we stayed behind so we wouldn't be hiking in such a big clump. We caught up with them, and had to hang back for a while again before continuing.
We stopped for lunch at Punchbowl Shelter, a shelter that is rumored to be haunted by a 4 year old that wandered off and died in the area 100 years ago. "Little Ottie." Dum dum DUUMMM!
Met up with Cricket at the shelter just before Glasgow, and enjoyed the super new privy. It was like a palace! Freshly built this year, the wood still smells nice and fresh... and it was actually clean! Awesome!
