The Lonesome Lake Hut croo. Thanks for not letting me die.

Today is not my day.  Within 3 minutes of setting out, I dunked both feet ankle deep in the brook (unintentionally).  I took a wrong turn.  I got in a spat with James (what do you expect when you spend 24 hours a day with someone for 2 months and counting) and was just completely exhausted.  I lose my new windbreaker, which was pretty much my favorite garment, and every step ached and took almost all of my energy to complete.  If this was the real world I would have called in sick.  Instead, I decided to climb a mountain.

It sucked.  Plain and simple.  Every step was an ordeal and time absolutely crawled by.  I changed my plans and decided to stop after 6 miles and punt.  I arranged work-for-stay at the Lonsome Lake Hut where I would get 2 meals and a bunk for no charge.  I had to move a couple of boxes in the basement, and that only took me about 20 minutes.  I consider that a fair deal.  I am actually splitting up with No Cheese and Night Rider.  Supposedly for the night but I wouldn't be surprised if it lasts longer than that.  Their pace is just so much different than mine.  We shall wait and see.  No worries, right?

So I spend my afternoon napping, catching up on my journal, and relaxing alone.  I hope it helps and I am rejuvinated tomorrow.  And will someone please remove the song "Rodeo" by Garth Brooks from my head.  It's stuck there and will not heed my eviction notice.
