Day #74-First day of wilderness kicks Blueberry’s butt; Miles hiked: 19.0

After a massive breakfast at Shaw’s this morning, it was time to enter the 100 mile wilderness. Let the games begin!The prospect of hiking 100 miles isn’t all that daunting…I’ve hiked over 1,000 to get to this point. The daunting part is having no way out and no way to get more food until the other side. Hope I brought enough!

It was also incredibly hot today! It’s been in the 40s at night and 60s during the day for the past week or so and today it was high 80s with humidity. Man, I thought I was done with that! Check out this sweat face…also, whoever said the wilderness was flat and easy was lying!Nineteen lonely miles later, I arrived at Cloud Pond and reunited with my crew. One day down, four more to go.
