Today was a long, slow, hot, mosquito infested climb. Yesterday my feet had wings, today my shoes are filled with an extra ten pounds. I’m dragging.

I broke out the mosquito head net for the first time today.

It fell off my hat when I took a break and I needed to backtrack to my break spot to find it. Little lapses in paying attention cost me too much time.

Another beat paw sharpening station. I’m watching for tracks but haven’t seen any yet.

Bees and mosquitoes are buzzing around my tent tonight. I need a bug zapper. Time for earplugs and sleep.

    2. I use it often to open cheese and cracker packages
