Left the motel this morning after eating a bunch of random junk at the "continental breakfast" that was offered. Got to the trail around 0900, hiked hard until the afternoon.
Warm day, soaked through with sweat until I stopped for lunch. Sat out in the sun and stripped down to my shorts to dry off, leaving my clothes to dry in the sun.
Hiked further than I expected, ate much less than I should have. Drank as much water as I could but still ended up with a bit of a headache for most of the afternoon.
Set up my new (used) tenting system, ate dinner, sat around chatting with the other hikers as long as I could.
On my way to bed I found a huge inflamed area on my leg. Not sure if it's a bug/spider bite, but we'll see what comes from it in the morning.
Day one complete.
