What A Day....
I hiked the first 4 miles over to Spider rd. where I met Carter who was to lead me through the area that had been flagged only. It has given me a completely new perspective of trail building. The area about 8 miles total 2 of which had been mowed and flagged the rest just flagged so it was eccentially a walk in the woods where no one and no tools had been. It sure took the energy out of me. My hats off to all trail builders what a hard job they have.
After the bushwacking was over it was almost 5 PM and time to camp. Carter bless his heart took me to his house for the nite and will take me back to the trail in the morning.  I won't make it to Akeley in time for the PO on Sat. but thats part of the PO delemma.
My brother called me tonite and said a tree had fallen on my house in Ky. we don't know the damage to the outside till we get the tree removed but the inside is okay.
Thank you Carter for all your help today
