Walking & Talking: Windy Desert, Hunger, Injuries

Hi All!

I haven’t been blogging much lately, and I find it extremely difficult to do so with no cell service in the middle of the desert, but in my absence, I made you all a video of me hiking and talking about random things–the weather, my injury, the lack of water, hunger, my trail family, and what hiking the PCT is like. The video consists of multiple clips filmed all throughout the day, hours apart, and you can see how much windier it gets with each video until it’s nearly blowing me over! Haha. You also see me begin to limp more and more and begin to make plans to get off the trail for a few days to heal, which I actually ended up having to do.

Anyways, enjoy. Sorry it’s so long! Apparently, I like to talk a lot when I’m filming myself in the middle of nowhere.

    It is interesting that you are wearing your jacket in the desert, but maybe it is cool and windy. I hope you can get past the injury and have a great hike.

      It was insanely windy and cold! I posted the link to the video if you’d like to see 🙂

        Thanks for posting the video. It was really interesting to watch and to imagine your struggle to get through that last half mile, which is always the longest. Beautiful scenery, but you needed goggles with that wind.

        It definitely did … Haha, it was endless! And my glasses are basically goggles. 😛

    No se resignan a que la mujer pueda decidir libremente sobre su sexualidad y maternidad y en último caso decidir libremente la interrupcion de un embarazo no deseado.Como ellos y ellas tienen una doble vida con sus amantes y sus posibilidades de arreglar sus embarazos no deseados fuera del pais, pues el resto de la humanidad que se fastidie.Pero por mucho que se esfuercen no van a impedir que la sociedad avance y una ley justa de interrupcion del embarazo sea pronto una rediSdaa.lalud, República y Socialismo
