Day 74: Goddard Shelter to Kid Gore Shelter (4.3 miles)
Updated: May 10, 2019
July 25, 2004 - During the night I started to feel sick, don’t know what from. Woke up in the morning late still feeling sick. So I took my time with breakfast and packing up and hoping I would feel better once I started moving around. I felt a little better so I got started around 10. About 2 miles down the trail I started to feel worse. I knew the next shelter was only 2 miles away so I got there as fast as I could, which wasn’t all that fast. I got there around 11:20 where there was a SOBO hiker eating lunch. So I decided to eat lunch and see if I felt better. After I ate my stomach still wasn’t feeling great so I decided to stay at this shelter for the day. I ended up sleeping most of the day. Lots of people came in and out. Around 6 pm two SOBO hikers came in so I decided to get up and make dinner. I fixed as much food as I normally eat but since I had only hiked 4.3 miles today I couldn’t eat it all. One of the other hikers helped me finish it off. That was the first time I couldn’t eat all of my dinner. Now I’m off for an early bedtime and hope that this is only a 24 hour sickness.
