Tuesday. Woke up at seven, which is late in the hiking community. My dreams are difficult and haunt me. Start at Laguna campground, mile 47, and end at mile 61. In a crappy mood and trying to shake it. 14 total miles for the day. weather tolerable except for lots of wind between miles 59 to 61. trying to remember song lyrics to famous blue raincoat and boots of Spanish leather. This trying to remember occupies about 1/4 of my day. Highlights of the day: watched wandering dot step on a snake. walked through a bee swarm. tons of perseverance. salami f*rts. even in 60 mph winds Wandering dot can smell them. in my head,”did you find the soda machine yet?” (ps sorry for the punctuation mistakes. Having a hard time fixing them with the iPhone).
