Another wet day today.  The rain didn’t pour hard but rained and drizzled most of the day.  I stayed wet all day and my feet were at all time pain and destruction, adding new blisters and sores each day.  I ran out of Band-Aids but used gauze pads and tape to patch things up.  I’m at a point of desperation with my feet as I really don’t want to walk on them anymore but I don’t have any choice.  I must tough it out to the border.  One more day…

Everything in my tent is wet, including my sleeping bag.  I shivered all night.  I plan to replace the tent with a double walled one when I finish this section, to prevent the constant dripping of condensation onto me through the night.  I was shivering when I had to put on my soaking wet clothes and boots this morning.  This is what I imagine hell would be like…

I only did about 15 and a half miles today.  The least in a long time.  I think my spirits are down and I’m not enthusiastic about completing miles.  Unfortunately, I will need to do 19 miles tomorrow to get to Manning Park in Canada.  It will be a long day.

My feet are waterlogged by the end of each day, making the skin soft and easy to scrape off.
