Condensation was a huge issue with last night’s campsite, so I’m hoping tonight is better. Having to worry about drying out your stuff mid-hike (not to mention stuffing it in your pack when it’s wet) is a bummer, and not something I’m used to. But I’m learning! Tonight I’m cowboy camping despite some chance of wind during the night. I’ll have all my layers on and I don’t expect to be cold.
I’m doing a lot of thinking out here. Life, goals, regrets, missed opportunities. Not in a negative way, either. I’m just going through the carousel of memories and watching each one as it circles around. It’s bizarrely pleasant how random memories pop into your head when you’re walking all day.
Interesting quote from “I Know I Don’t Know” off Panda Bear’s Buoys album: “Anything goes when joy’s the plan.” I hope I keep this in mind as the trail gets more challenging.
