Comments: Got a late start on Friday night after work and camped about 3 miles in on the Osseo trail. Saturday, started at around 4 am and hiked the western Pemi with my somewhat heavy pack, wondering if I had made a big mistake as pemi loopers were flying past me. Had a talk with myself and decided that I could do this, just keep on moving. Made surprisingly good time and was on Garfield by early afternoon. Garfield pond was a welcome site but decided to wait til tent site to get water. FYI, not much water on the western Pemi unless you want to venture down to Liberty spring or Greenleaf hut. I carried 3 liters and it seemed to last til the Garfield tent site. Goal was to get to 13 falls but this was full so I kept going to the base of the Owlshead slide and decided to camp there. Saw a few others camping nearby. Sunday am, up the Owls slide which was steeper than I remembered. Decided to take the Brutus down which is a more obvious foot path at this point as is the Black pond whack. This was an epoch solo adventure for this 1/2 of Slow and Steady.
