I wanted to hike out today, but I was too far behind on my blog. Keeping up with this thing requires nearly a full day, and yesterday and last night I was too distracted by my companions to do the work I needed to do.
It’s been increasingly difficult to write as much as I want to each night. I hike until 8 or 9, then don’t usually finish up writing until close to 11pm, sometimes later. Lately its been getting much cooler at night, so my screen has been getting condensation on it, making it very difficult to type accurately. Not to mention the cold hands/fingers.
So yes, it turned into a double zero so I don’t get too far behind on what I basically consider my job; bringing the experience to you, as well as archiving my thoughts and memories. It’s so difficult to maintain the discipline to write this much out here, but I know it will pay off later down the road when I want to re-live the journey and elaborate on it in a possible future book.
I’m going to try and get back on trail as early as possible tomorrow morning.
