3-1-16 to 3-2-16

Mar 1st


At the camp area I slept at near Hawk Mountain Shelter I woke and noted this:

2016-03-01 09.46.59

2016-03-01 20.22.11

2016-03-01 20.21.58


Ended my day at Gooch Mountain Shelter.

Last 5 miles survived (well, felt like it lol) on peanut butter to-go snack, two jelly shots, and then random handfuls of Cookie Crisp cereal.  Estimate am running on 1800-1900 calories over the past two days.   Made video and pics or two, need to take a zero day tomorrow for my left foot and to just eat all day long.

Started thoughts of, “I’m going to/better have a bodacious ass when this is done.”.


Some great grabbed pics:

Ledge/cave that clearly folks have camped beneath and clearly the path went up over, there was a Y.

Rain started sprinkling as I was on top of some of the Hills with gusts, am glad I hopped into my rain gear when it started feeling like it would.  Nothing at all heavy until hitting Gooch Shelter.

Stayed in my tent, as planned, less wind and fewer people by far than shelter.

Mar 2nd, zero day

Today, eating my head off.

In morning had moment of weakness that lasted about 4 minutes where I called the nearby hostel to pick me up and spend my zero day there, then it passed.

Been cooking and eating as I cooked and am eating some more, plus hot tea. Laying in my bed right now.
