After days of rest my backpack felt like 100lbs., but I’m back on the trail and made it 8 miles to first campsite. My leg feels like caca and tomorrow is 11 miles to next camp with water source. Don’t know if I mentioned this, but water weighs 2.2lbs per liter. Normally you can carry 1.5 and make it a few miles to the next stream. It’s hot and humid and I could go through a gallon in no time. Plus cooking water. So, tomorrow will also be caca.
Tired and hungry. Hiker midnight (8pm) comes all too soon.
