Left Springer around 10:30, hiked 7.8 miles in the first 5 hours with Rachel. Averaged 1.58 m/h. Body was only 2 of 10 sore. Toe slightly rubbing in new shoes. Broke my walking stick already. Ran out of quinoa already. Forgot spices and mushrooms. Drank mush coffee. Practiced tarm & tent, solo stove. Pack little dry wood or charcoal in future. Phone was down to 20% already. Battery pack depleted after 1 charge. Light wasnt charging either, even when keeping in sleeping bag. Came up with team name.

I feel like running but know that won’t go over well. I decide to be nice and take it easy. I’ve learned in the past that it’s well worth the company to slow down, finish as a team.

So I cam up with a team name.

Nice & Easy.

It’s going to be an interesting winter.

UPDATE: Made some videos.
