4.12 miles hiked/ Solo Camp
I woke up around 7 and then told myself to go back to sleep for a bit. Then I woke up at 8:30 and started to get ready for the day.
I packed up my gear, confirmed I had enough food, and then ate my left over tator tots and spicy Mac and cheese bites from the night before.
Around 10:30 I started hiking.
I was planning on 4-7 miles today depending on how my hip does (this morning it ached a bit).
However the weather had other plans.
It was very foggy suddenly while hiking. Started about .7 miles into the day.
And it started to get very very cold and windy too.
All uphill today too. Type 2 fun. I very much enjoyed my day hiking today even when it was windy. Hiking through the eerie burn zone with fog was a cool experience.
Around 3.4 miles in I started to feel the occasional drop of rain on my face and I hate the rain haha.
When I spotted the campsite at 4.12 miles around 1pm it started to pour on me. I started to set up my tent but the wind was so much I had to change tent spots…. And then again.
Third times the charm right?
I decided to get warm and dry and wait out the rain and wind for a while. However it continued for 4.5 hours and I decided by then that I should just stay out for the night and wait till tomorrow :)
Now it’s almost 7 and still incredibly windy so I haven’t moved out of my sleeping bag except to pee haha.
It’s weird how I’m barely hungry still. I hope that changes soon because I assume that I am under eating. So sometimes I force myself to eat when I don’t want to.
I have service tonight so I’m doing Q and A’s on my Instagram and watching a movie till I sleep :)
Tonight the wind is so bad that it’s pulled out the tent stakes 4 times so far… it’s almost 4am. And I had multiple rocks over them… make that 5 times now. Fuck my life honestly. I’ve barely slept tonight.
6 times. 5am.
