At Nantahala Outdoor Center. It’s beautiful here. Was 5.5 mile hike down here. It was quite treacherous. There were times when I had to take my pack off and slide down on my butt in order to get down the mountain. I did things today that no 50 year old fat woman should be doing. But I survived and got to take a shower and do laundry. Feeling good and ready for a long climb out tomorrow. I’ve been thinking about how important it is for us to be willing to fight for our lives on a daily basis. Life presents us with challenges everyday, and sometimes they seem insurmountable, but we can’t give up the fight. I know people right now who are fighting…don’t give up!
