Upper Gentian Pond Shelter, NH Travel Blog› entry 77 of 83 › view all entries
Well, well, well. Another day that hasn't gone as planned. Big surprise. I WANTED to do 17 miles today and tackle the ever dreaded Mahoosuc Notch tomorrow, but I got to this shelter after 12 , saw the clouds and heard the thunder and decided that was enough. I pretty much fell asleep for over an hour as soon as I stopped walking. Maybe another long night of sleep is what I need, maybe not. If I still don't feel well tomorrow, I am going to get myself to a doctor in the next town - Andover. The thing that makes this worse is that Scott and James are on like a day and a half in front of me, and I would like to catch up with them, but I don't want to push it when I feel crappy.
Right now it's tought to stay motivated to stay on the trail. I mean seeing everyone at home was great. It made me feel - at home. It would be so easy to just get on a bus and head back to ALB, but I know I can't. I need to see this through. If I left now, it would just be another thing to ass to the long list of stuff I started but never finished. Do I get some points for trying to turn it around? I sure hope so.
Maine tomorrow, 286 miles to go.
