Started: Unnamed Creek Tentsite (2307.3)
Ended: Cliff Tentsite (2327.8)
Total Miles: 20.5
I woke up to the sound of the unnamed creek. It was cold. I didn’t want to get out of my warm sleeping bag. For the first time, I really didn’t want to hike. I just wanted rest.
I guess the excitement of Goats Rock, getting lost on the fire alternate, and quickly going in and out of towns has taken their toll on me. I probably need a zero, but there isn’t any time to do that.
So I decided to look at the map and see what my options are. I found a good solution. My projections assume a twenty mile day. At 20.5 miles is a single tentsite that has Verizon LTE. I’ll hike there and update my blog.
I dogged the whole day. I ate extra calories at lunch, but it didn’t help.
Dogging twenty miles meant that I made the campsite by 4:30 p.m. so I guess that is still pretty fast.
So I’ve spent the afternoon updating everything and eating like crazy. Hopefully this rest is just what I needed. I still want to cut one more day off this hike to make sure I’m home by my anniversary.
