It was a rough start with a full pack. We just resupplied with 4.5 days of food and it was heavy! The last few times we have resupplied it was with 3.5 days and what a difference that makes.
We had a pretty foggy start this morning, which I thought was pretty cool looking. I made it up and over Prospect Rock pretty well, a 1200 foot climb but Laraway Mountain, did me in. Laraway was a 1500 foot climb and I lost my steam. I had cell service on the way up so I called Jim and he made things better and distracted me from the exertion I was having to put forth. Thank you, Babydoll.
On a positive note I finished the day with clean socks and no dirt or tree debris in my shoes, thanks to my new gators. They were awesome!! I was cleaning out my shoes at least twice a day. I was even getting mud and debris under the insoles!?!?
It is currently 6pm and I have eaten dinner (mac and cheese) had a whole protein bar for dessert and am in bed and I think I could fall asleep right now so I am going to try.
I did fall asleep at 6pm and woke up at 7pm to go to the bathroom then went back to sleep and slept until almost 6 the next morning. These mountains are exhausting.
