I reached 50 miles.
The first few miles today went well. As the day wore on, my legs and hips started hurting again and the day got hot. I guess that is to be expected.
Unfortunately, after 50 miles of hiking on the trail I decided to stop. I’m getting tired of sitting on the ground, drinking pond water, sleeping on the ground, digging catholes and hauling a forty pound pack up and down rough terrain.
So, I’m headed home. Should be there by Friday evening. I’m riding the bus!
