Tedious Descent

The world has moved on. The mountain remains.


16 October, 2017 – Day 154

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.


Day one of the trek back to town for our lone survivor of the apocalypse. This is a follow-on to Autumn Solitude on the Mountainside.

    It's nice to see you plan on telling more of the story. Great work with the sledge.

    Faved, because this rocks socks. :D

    More great landscaping...I still love the icicles. So, more to come in this series? I'd love to see a water feature...an icy stream or small waterfall or something.

    Well done, Justin.

    Yes, more to come, though probably slowly.

    After seeing Amhakia's, I'd really like to try a waterfall, and an icy one could be even cooler, but I'm not sure where that might squeeze into this particular storyline (at least in the the near future). A river may be in order, but a waterfall will probably have to wait a while. If I get it to the point I want to, though, there will definitely be some cool water effects.

    Keep it coming!!! I've been gathering parts to make snow-ness, and you are an inspiration! Fantastic icicles or snow overhangs or whatever, as well!!!

    Ooh, Wunz-snow! I'm looking forward to that!
