8.82 miles hiked
Yea I barely slept last night due to the insane wind and my sleeping pad apparently deflated during the night. No wonder I was uncomfortable.
Oh well, sleep is for the weak right? Help me... I’m so tired.
Momma and I had a long and hard day.
We passed into section C today so that is a huge milestone for me.
The wind today while hiking was brutal (But was nice to have to keep the heat away as much as possible)
A few times I almost fell off the trail because the wind was so strong.
It took 7 hours to hike into camp. That's how slow going it was today.
Mom re-injured herself and that’s why we took so long getting to camp.
(I was okay with that and was walking slow too to ensure I don’t re-hurt myself)
So odds are mom won’t be able to continue with me to Big Bear... which really sucks.
It has been fun camping and hiking together again and just spending time with her. I know she is sad that she can't continue with me, but it's okay. We knew it might happen because of her injuries and I had already mentally prepared myself for that ahead of time so that I wouldn't cry when we decided she needed to stop. We watched a movie in my tent after we ate dinner. I got her to try a ramen bomb for the first time, but sadly she didn't like it. Something about the texture, that's fair though. Though you still are weird for not liking it mom.
I teared up a little before I slept just from all the emotions again. I wish mom could stay with me, but I know it's best she goes home and doesn't push through the pain.
The moon is so bright again. It’s like a huge solar nightlight.
