People sometimes think that I work out to lose weight. Those people are the ones that don't understand what being fit is about. I'm not saying that I don't appreciate the 30 pounds I've lost in the last year, but it's just an awesome side effect. I don't have kids to “live for” and I don't have anyone to impress but myself. I do it for me--100%.
Day 5: It rained all...Night...Long. I really didn't mind though since I was nice and dry in my tent. It only sucked when I had to get out to pee once. I made it really quick though. The sound of the rain on a tent is such a soothing one. I sleep really well and so does Motown snoring away next to me.
Day 4: I wake around 7am but lie there cuddling my Motown for a while. I hope he feels better. I was contemplating trying to make Squaw Pass today but decided against it once Motown got sick last night. So now we have a much shorter hike out. So do I stay at the lake or start back and camp tonight on Squaw Creek Trail?
I wake to a beautiful sight of The Window and RGP behind the Weminuche Meadow. So beautiful, I hope the GoPro pics turn out since my phone is dead. Well, we have a 2500' gain and 12 miles in front of us. Let's get going Motown!
