Day 109: 1,900 Miles As The Rubber Meets The Road

Started: Windigo Pass (1878.2)

Ended: Shelter Cove Resort (1906.6)

Total Miles: 28.4 + 1.3 Bonus Miles

Achievements: 1,900 Miles, Marathon (3)

I was up a 4 a.m. I couldn’t sleep. The plan to meet my wife requires that this hike is done September 24th. I did the calculations myself and I’m slated to be done on the 27th. There is plenty of time, but I was at a crossroads. I was 28 miles from my next resupply at Shelter Cove. Could I pound out those miles and still have energy to do the chores?

There is only one way to find out.

The answer is yes. I did 10 by 10. I did 20 by 2. I made it to Shelter Cove by 6 p.m. That was enough time for dinner, a shower, and to charge my battery pack.

I moved at 3+ m.p.h. for most of the day. My breaks were short. I ate as I walked.

This means that I successfully cut a day off my hike. Tomorrow, after breakfast, I’ll be back on trail.

I’m exhausted, but it is good to know I can push if I need to.
