Day 4 - Zero Day

Today is zero mile day. No hiking. I am taking a rest day to let me sore feet heal.

I did not do much today. This is the goal of a zero day. I slept in, caught up on my emails and cleaned my gear and clothes.

Both of my parents grew up near Minster where I am staying. I took the opportunity to visit the graves of my four grandparents and the grave of my father.

On the way I visited my dearest uncle Dr Don Schwieterman in Maria Stein. We had a nice chat about Buckeye Trail hiking and various topics. My Uncle Don got his Eagle Scout award along with a guy named Neil Armstrong from Wapakoneta. They were in the same Boy Scout Troop.
