I hiked 14 miles today and will have another 14 or so to do the next day. Why so many? Wellll, it seems I may have miscalculate a tad bit on my snack foods and I've had to cut back on my intake during the day. I still have all the needed meals through tomorrow and half of the next day I just don't have the in between stuff. I mean, a two ounce packet of tuna is good and all but ya kinda need something else to go with it. So I need to get out by mid-day the next day before I run totally out.
So that's one reason. A second one became clear to me when I went to cook dinner tonight. Hey, where's my spoon? I had it at lunch...hummm. Nope, no spoon. And I don't carry a spare (this will change) so how the heck can I cook, and more importantly eat dinner?
In reference to the title of this missive? My luck has run out. There has been a mosquito bloom, so I've spent most of the day today trying to avoid being someone else's lunch and I don't imagine it will be getting much better anytime soon. Oh well, it's still way better than sitting in traffic somewhere.
