Morgan stewart shelter

It is 6 pm I am the first to arrive at the shelter. the last 2 nights I spent with slow mosey , stripper ,sargent and weaver. I expect them to spend the night here we expect to rain and no 1 wants to carry wet gear

Doxycycline and lyme

The last few days are a blur.
Among  the side affects of doxycycline are difficulty with concentration and memory.
I begin a written  journal of when I took my medication. I see now I wrote June 7 for the last 3 days of journal entries.
I may only be able to hike 10 miles today but at least invented the 35 days months

perfect day

I'm struggling to maintain 1 mile an hour. I have had a cellulitis infection in my foot  for over a month now. first cycle antibiotics failed. I am in the first week of 3 week doxycyclene program in case it's lyme disease. so I just have to protect myself from the side affects and move slower. which means I will have more time to update my blog

Bear encounter number 2

Mile 1318 .the bear that just ran from me ,30 yards up the trail.
was twice as large as the one  I saw in the shenandoah . This bear  was moving very fast. I'm glad he was running away because there is no out running that.
