Day 6 | Florida Trail 18 miles 1/5/18
Glad to be done hiking today, got to camp way earlier than I thought I was, I had a really long sit-down haha. My legs and feet are beat!!
We had a beautiful sunset that set the night sky on fire, the clouds bled the color of the sun. And all I think about is the day I just had it was brutal, cold and windy the whole day I didn’t take one layer off. My feet still throbbing and swelling more and more from the shoes I’m wearing. I saw more birds flying around and looking majestic as f**k keeping really low to the water and I’m just waiting on a gator to slap it’s jaws right over it. But that never happened!
All we have is a long dirt road for 18 miles. I can see how some think that’s crazy, he just walked an 18 Mile road for fun.
Well yeah I did, it’s not always about the walk, I’m learning.
I’m gaining the miles I need to get north, this is the fun part watching the miles stack, the hard work paying off, the pain that was brutally taking you down more and more but totally worth it (you just keep walking), that’s all I had to do. Keep walking.
