Greetings from the trail,
Today I continued to break away from the TCT. Not because it looks inefficient, but because I'm taking it easy. I only traveled about 9 kms to Norbury Lake Provincial Park. Tomorrow I'm off to Fort Steele.
Taking down camp this morning was quite an ordeal as I was swarmed by hundreds of mosquitoes. I'd kill dozens by scraping my hands across my legs and arms only to have more take their place. Where do they all come from? Doesn't nature ever run out?
I'm currently at camp relaxing. The only thing keeping me from being eaten alive is that I smell like a can of Off. I certainly hope these bugs die and go away soon.
See you on the trail,
