What a long day. Woke up super tired, but did my best to shake it off, pack up, and get on my way.
Had trouble finding a spot to camp last night. The one viable spot I ended up using turned into a boggy puddle overnight and left anything touching the floor of my tent a wet and soggy mess. Dried things off as best as I could and put them in my pack.
Slow morning through Bradwell Bay. Shin to thigh deep mud and water for a few miles, with deep holes randomly throughout. A bit more exhausting than it should have been, might be coming down with something.
After exiting the bay around noon, the few miles taking much longer than usual, I came upon a parking area at a road crossing. Unpacked all my stuff from last night and hung it to dry. Grabbed some water, ate lunch, relaxed for a bit.
Rest of the day really drug on. Been in a sleepy/sick haze and was hoping to stop early but the last few miles were on a forest road with nowhere to pitch a tent.
Arrived at the campsite to find it overgrown with plants and bushes similar to last night. Had a bit of a struggle setting up camp, but managed to get something to work.
Here's hoping that a good night sleep is in the cards and I can shake this sickness off.
