Pine Swamp Shelter

Posted by on May 11, 2017


My plan was 16 miles but my feet were hurting from all the rocks and climbs. I just don’t have legs for yet, so I’m in the shelter at 10 miles. I imagine it’ll take me a month to get some legs built up…. It’s supposed to get down to freezing tonight so I have my tent set up in the shelter to contain some heat. Nobody coming north that I know of… so I’m taking the chance!

The briefs have helped the chafing issue immensely… Still some soreness but I’ll at least be able to heal now. Did I mention that
woman and these briefs area a Godsend….. No more cheese graters rubbing together!!!!

I have two pics today, the first is where I had lunch… The views are truly amazing and will be spectacular further north, the second is yours truly pushing through a very narrow gap of rocks… some call it the 2nd lemon squeeze….it was tight!
