The Long Trail Day 21by cyberhiker01 on 06/24/14
No SPOT GPS today, as we have not moved. Due to my inability to do math and to the safety trail we took yesterday, we outhiked our resupply. We have 5 miles to go to get to our rendezvous spot, so Tennille and I took a "zero" in the woods. For those of you who don't know what that is, it means you do zero miles. As a thru-hiker, spending a day in the woods and not going forward is tough. As a blind thru-hiker, there is very little to do. We did some chores, searched for wood in an attempt to make a fire, but everything was still too wet. We got stocked up on water, and Tennille caught up on some much needed sleep. On days like today, I wish I had my iPod with me. The highlight of the day was moving my solar panel through the trees looking for sun so I could charge my batteries. We're looking forward to getting back to hiking tomorrow. I am hoping this experience will improve my mathematical skills. We have plotted our final resupplies and are getting closer to figuring out how the heck I get back home from the Canadian border. I wanted to send a big thank you to Revo Sunglasses for my awesome glasses. Not only is it cool to tell people that I am a blind hiker sponsored by a sunglass company, but more than once on this hike they have saved my eyes from being poked out by sticks.
