Lots of little tasks, but they add up. The sun is up now at 6 AM and down around 8:30 PM. We just managed 10 miles before lunch in the pouring rain, including slippery rock hops, in 5-1/2 hours. Had we not been stopping for a ride into town, it might have been our longest day. So far, the most we’ve been able to handle walking is 16.9 miles between 7:30 and 5:30. That was a long, tiring day.
Spending six or seven days a week putting one foot in front of the other: that’s a job.
