Day 10: Cheesecake Time!

March 12, 2021 Mile: 0.0 Our room was so dry last night; even dryer than the desert, I think. At least dryer than the inside of my tent at night. My sinuses have been very plugged up on this hike and I’ve had to breathe through my mouth at night (gross). My mouth gets dry, sure, butContinue reading “Day 10: Cheesecake Time!”

Day 9: Getting to Vail, AZ

March 11, 2021 Mile: 112.6 Last night a couple of people drove their truck into the stock pond shortly after we arrived. We’re pretty sure they were drunk because they were being kind of raucous and actually playing in the pond! Yuck!! Well, I guess if they don’t die at least their immunity will be offContinue reading “Day 9: Getting to Vail, AZ”

Day 6: 10 Good Miles

March 8, 2021 Mile: 61.7 Woke up around 6am and laid in bed for a while so as not to wake Ghosthiker.

She’d snuck out while I was still asleep, and I’d justContinue reading “Day 6: 10 Good Miles”

Day 5: Patagonia, AZ

March 7, 2021 Mile: 51.1 Once again, I didn’t sleep well last night. Ugh, and I went to bed so freaking exhausted! I’m pretty sure the pain in my knee is keeping me awake. Plus, it was a weird night. I started out cold and happily snuggled in my quilt, then I woke up sweating,Continue reading “Day 5: Patagonia, AZ”

Day 3: “Pasta Alfredo!”

March 5, 2021 Mile: 25.7 Yesterday, because we hadn’t exactly hiked a full day or anything and I wasn’t especially hungry, I just made normal coffee before we hiked out. But today I added the protein mix I brought with me and YUCK! I’m gonna have to change it up or something because I cannotContinue reading “Day 3: “Pasta Alfredo!””

Day 1: It Begins

March 3, 2021 Miles: 1.7 I’m baaaaaaaaaack!! Well, it’s been a spell, yeah? Lot of things happening in the world, amirite? Pandemics, riots, fires literally everywhere! I mean, jeez. It’s been a fun couple of years, right? Right? Anyway, sometime later in the summer of 2020, when I was just fed up with everything andContinue reading “Day 1: It Begins”
