D-day

I passed through the storied arches of Amicolola falls at 9:30 this morning at arrived at Mike marker (MM) .2 on the App Trail at 5:30 this afternoon. Not much progress for 8 hours? Oh, there was 8 miles of approach trail in between lol.

Not gonna lie it was a smoker - with the help of some good Warriors and the Lord- I made it and got all of my chores done. Set up tent, filter water, cook supper and figure out a cranky zipper on my bag.

Oh, it get below 15 degrees tonight and hopefully I'll make with just what I carried!

Day 1 was a success for this 55 year old fat dude with an artificial hip. But tomorrow holds some new challenges.

One more night in Fontana

We made it out of the village and did the 1.2 mile section that we missed when the shuttle picked us up at the trailhead. We considered going another 6.6 miles up the mountain to get to the only tent

Gotta pick up some salonpas heat/pain patch. Will keep that booty warm at night and help ease your back aches. Looking good old man!
