I forced myself up this morning and crawled out of the scrub just after first light. I feel a bit out of sorts and even after hiking nearly twelve miles I’m still half asleep. I’ve come down with something or another. I’m feeling every inch of this hike like I never have before. Each step is a struggle and the weight of my pack is almost more than I can take. I’m hoping that after I grab a bite to eat I’ll snap out of it.
