DAY 3 More brutality

Gaps in this story!!

I was up fairly early and  soon packed. Okay snail to the water source.

I headed off thinking I could cut across  and join the trail

MISTAKE..I ended up walking into a figure of 8 and  again cutting my legs to shreds.

At last I found the trail and pushed on I had probably lost an hr. Why didn’t I just walk down the road.

At last the next water cache came I to view i dropped my pack, signed the register and began to top up my water.

All done  I set out again and into the brutal furnace of this sectionm

It was 4 pm and today I have not been able to get anypace. My hip is hurting  which is annoying.

But I pushed on it was at least 6.5 to the next cache and i was struggling  and my water was getting  low. I began to get doubts of my abilities.  I have completed 2 thrus but I’m struggling with this part of the cdt..The temps  with in the 100 and it was only 4 pm . At last some shade. 

I dropped my pack and hid from.the sun. No way can I do 6 more. I think I will camp and try to get there early in the morning.

As I sat there feeling sorry for myself.a sobo  came by. 

He told me that there was a cache  under the tree in 3 miles.

Perhaps wait a few hrs and  you could make that.

Yes I can do that  so around 6 I headed out . It was still hot  but there was shade.at last in the distance I could see a tree.

Come on snail you have got this .

At last  the tree and beneath it sat 6 water containers   2 still full whoop. I quickly threw up my tent,put on a brew and then cooked dinner. It was getting dark as I crawled into my bed.

Okay  so  to hike this section get up early go as far as you can before you melt. Find shelter.Stay there eat dinner hike out around 6.pm

Mileage 14 not included my mad detour 

Ps sorry for lack of photos it will get better
