Day 110
I woke up at 1 am unable to bend my bad knee. After getting no sleep from the pain, I woke up at 7 am and got up, trying to walk unsuccessfully. We finally set out from the shelter around 8:30 and it took me 3 hours to go 2.9 miles. Nokey and Testament took turns carrying my pack for me and when we made it down to the first shelter, I finally got the knee to pop and the pressure relieved. We decided to go ahead and have lunch, skipping going into Kent, and then move on. we now had the hot midday sun to us and had some big climbs ahead of us, Caleb’s Peak and St. John’s Ledge. The ledges were steep and I actually fell down off them at one point, but no one was around to see me. I finally got some help from a southbounder and hopped back up to find Nokey and Testament waiting for me. It was pretty hot and we were all worn out. We decided to just stop at the next shelter making for the longest 10-mile day ever. The video posted sums it up. We went to bed at 7:30.
