For the write up. I enjoyed the spooky parts especially the leathery brown face...funny how a tired brain can play such tricks on you. However your mind was obviously working well when you decided to keep it to one way based on the fall, etc. Hope you're feeling rejuvenated a few days later! Really proud of you bro.
Thanks. I feel surprisingly good! Looking forward to getting back out for some training in this gorgeous fall weather. Looking forward to Thanksgiving. Looking forward to getting back on The Batona Trail sometime soon ...
Thanks for the details. I am impressed that you only made the wrong turns you made. It must have been very difficult. I hope you have a speedy recovery.
Having dropped you off at dusk and gotten myself lost in zero seconds, following you live off and on all night, seeing backtrackings and slowing pace, worrying and generally hoping you were OK; I admit to being amazed that you finished half of this "bat-shit crazy" effort. One for the family annals. Amazing.
Thanks, Kswede & hughmac3. The navigation wasn't hard (I'd done it twice before, once also at night), it was just the 'paying attention' piece. I'm easily distracted by my own thoughts. Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and All Night Long can really suck you in over time. I think I'll fit Peter and the Wolf in next time, too ... good stuff.
