Day 5 - Rain Rain Go Away
I walked 26026 steps on the trail today.
I traveled about 12 miles today.
Another fairly short day to reach Cascade River State Park where I'm supposed to meet Bryan tonite. We'll hike together until Sunday when he has to return to school. Larry and I hiked together to the park then he went on ahead. I expect Bryan and I will find him on the trail since he's stopping to fish tomorrow.
Five days have seen lots of ups and downs, animals, forest types, and weather. This pic is the shore of Lake Superior this evening after an hour of rain just passed through. I spent that time huddled under a cedar tree :-). It's now clearing a little to the south so my fingers are crossed.
Last night, it cleared at sunset but then came right back raining for 5 hours during the night. Better then while hiking.
My arm warmers from Northern Star Council have been a useful idea the past couple days.
My pack is very light now since I'll pick up my first food cache tomorrow. More noodles, yum!
Hopefully, my online map is updating regularly but with the thick forest I expect some pings get lost - Check out my current location on the map.

I wanted to thank you for keeping up at this amazing thing your doing. I lost track of your blog for about a year then returned to find you still going strong! What an inspiration, possibly some day I'll see ya on the trails.Sep 22, 2012 - Scouter Paul
John - glad you refound me. :-) In the past two days, I've encountered two people on trail that I've read about online so I find it to be great fun to turn the virtual online personnas into real people.
