Nights 57 and 58

Hi and welcome back!

On Tuesday night when I went to bed, in the middle of my sleeping bag there was a small damp spot that was probably from water coming through the seam in the tent floor so I tried to avoid it. I woke up in the middle of the night and the spot had grown and gotten the fleece that I was sleeping in soaked. So I took it off, put a t-shirt on, and put a waterproof jacket over what at that point was a tiny puddle. Thankfully I slept comfortably for the rest of the night.

Today my dad left to hike about 3 minutes before me and I didn't see him again until he was descending and I was going up. When we bumped into each other he told me that he got up in a record time of 9 minutes and 38 seconds. He then decided to go up the last bit with me and I ended up having a pretty good time of 13 minutes.

Thanks for reading!


  1. Dear LRC,

    Let me ask you something that you might find terribly obvious but which may not be to your readers: Why do you hike every morning?

    1. Thanks for commenting!
      I hike every morning mainly to train for a hike/climb that my dad and I are going to do on Mt. Washington next winter. I also hike because my dad has hiked every day for the last 15 years.
