Location: October Mountain Shelter

Today's Miles: 11.7

Total Miles: 1556.9


Slept in this morning until around 0900. Woke to another awesome breakfast at our buddy's house, with today's highlight being coffee, french toast, and monte cristos!


Slow to start, we didn't leave the house until after noon today. Some of us didn't leave the house until later, while others only made it the three miles to the upper goose pond cabin, where you can go canoeing and swimming.


I pushed on, even though the vortex was strong, and managed to get to the originally planned destination for today.


The mosquitos as this shelter are absolutely ridiculous, making everything from setting up camp to cooking and eating dinner an incredible hassle.


Lying in my bivy I can hear them in stereo around my head. Tonight will be a night for earplugs, even though I have the shelter all to myself!
