Well, day one of my trek back to town is coming to an end. It snowed a tad this morning, but not enough to really make problems. What did slow me down was the damn sledge. It’s bulky and a little lopsided, and makes every bump a hassle. Much of the hike today covered ground I see regularly hunting, but with a pack on my back and a sledge behind me, the trip is much more cumbersome. All the ledges I can usually clamber up and down now force me to stop and lower the sledge on a rope. I’m glad I brought all the rope I did – gonna make sure and pick up a lot more in town too.
Anyway, enough writing for tonight. I’ve got to hang the bear bag up and hit the sack. I’m worn out.
