Lots of dew last night. I slept well though. No elk came by in the night. When I went for water the field next to us was empty and 20 minutes before it was over run with elk.
It was a quick walk into town. We saw some critters and that’s about it. Once to town I physically hit the wall. All I wanted to do was sleep. We ended up out to lunch. I had two beers and a sandwich. The beers were a bad idea. I had a headache the rest of the day. Dehydration? Probably.
I slept a few hours that afternoon and then we cooked frozen pizza and had some salad for dinner. After dinner we did laundry in the sinks because there was no laundry mat.
The jest of the day was I was so tired. I’m really feeling worn out. That said I should take a day off but the feeling to push on to finish is always present.
