3/10/12 – Day 2 – Gooch Mtn Shelter 7.7mi


Couldn’t sleep much last night as expected. Woke up, ate oatmeal with trail mix and pop tarts. Tuna and crackers and nutella tortillas for lunch. Ramen with a pack of salmon, garlic and crackers for dinner, was pretty good.

Tough day, ready for it to be over, but it kept on going. Sassaffras was steep and tough. Going up is tiring, going down is more painful.

Meeting some cool people. I go slow so they usually pass me up after a few and meet them at a shelter later.

I want to go to bed early since I am tired and it is dark, but that means about twelve hours of laying here until it is light enough in the morning.

Tomorrow I will be going to Lance Creek. I think it is the last campsite before the area with bear problems where bear cans are required.
