Unexpected zero day on trail
Welpppp. I woke up at like 2 am to a puddle of water in the bottom right part of my tent.
fuck fuck fuck fuck
Everything is wet except for my sleeping clothes and sleeping bag though so thank god.
I put on my headlamp and made a barrier with my wet gear and some dry items so I don’t slide into the puddle while sleeping
(Apparently I’m sleeping on an angle)
I woke up probably every 30 minutes to readjust everything over and over again.
I slept on and off until 8 am and then woke up to use my trowel and scooped out most of the water. Then I went back to sleep.
My plan was when the rain stopped around 12pm (supposedly) I would pack up and walk 1.6 miles to a road where I could bail out and dry my gear and reset.
The weather had other plans tho. It didn’t stop raining till around 3:30-4pm.
So today turned into a zero day on trail. Not the most fun zero haha
I watched all my shows until I got to the ones that didn’t download sadly and then I played some solitaire and got very antsy. I wanted to get out of here. But it’s freezing, everything is wet and I can stay warm inside my tent.
I managed to orchestrate a bail out ride for tomorrow so that made me feel a lot better about my situation.
I started to get some stomach pain so I went back to my tent and listened to another chapter of my audio book. My adhd makes it hard to focus so I only listen to a chapter or a half of one at a time.
Now I wait for sleep to come and tomorrow to get to that road asap.
