I was gonna write up this funny post and update you guys but I’ll just be real. Im pissed.

Not because this trip is too hard, or I’m too wet, or cuz I’m bored. It’s because my knee (a problem that irritates me from time to time is back) I made it to neels gap, with no problems despite lots of rain and leaving a ton of gear at home. This included my trekking poles which I need to hold my tent up…and, of course, the shelters are packed! I have adapted this new bear gryllsian technique of using sticks to fold my tent up.

But anyways I am having such an amazing time out here and the reason I’m down in spirits is because I’ve been chillin at mountain crossings all day watching all these other hikers hike on while I’m stuck resting and waiting to retrieve my complete gear.

I just gotta remember that it’s a long journey and there’s time. Gotta keep my head up.
