Things We Don't Like So Much

Day 66

Sunday May 28, 2017

Mile: 657.1 - 676.1     19.4 miles completed

Weather: Cloudy, hot, and humid with a couple grocery store produce mistings 

Since yesterday I talked about our likes. It only makes sense for today's post to be about what we don't care for. If you have been following along for any length of time my biggest dislike is being cold and wet. I don't mind the cold and I don't really mind hiking in the rain but what I don't like is those to elements combined. Then it's just aweful. 

Shortcake's List

- Uphills

- Feet hurting

- Being wet and wet gear

- Camp chores after a full day of hiking

- Packing and Unpacking

- Getting dressed in tent

- Getting up early 

Black Bear'S List

- Being wet and cold

- Sleeping after a hot sweaty day and no shower 

- The humidity

- Pot and cigarette smoking 

- Dogs not on a leash that try to steal your food

- Downhill

- Smelly hikers

- Graffiti on trail signs

- Gross privies

It seemed so much easier to ramble off our dislike list. But as much as we may not like a lot of the stuff we go through on the trail it doesn't out weigh our likes. It's no different out here on the trail The when perusing any other dream or goal. You must do the things you do not really want to do in order to have or accomplish the thing in which you desire. 

Happy Hiking.
