I’ve adjusted my pack, my routine, and my sleeping position to ease my lower back & hips, and it may be helping. It’s easier to walk this morning. The land is lush, rain threatens throughout the day. I try to retain my optimism to help Pete – he complains of feeling a little sick. Really I’m still worrying about what will happen if we stop early. I can’t help it – I would feel bad if we had to stop because of me. I’m in turmoil about it inside.
