Here are just a few things about today :
1) Carrot and I wake up to mouse turds on the lids of our pots. There’s one turd on her pot and three turds on mine. I….want to die at the sight of the mouse turds. Why. Just….why.
2) I come up with a very good idea for a meme account. The account will be queer thru hiking memes. Here is an example of one meme: imagine a silhouetted figure, on top of a mountain during a very bodacious sunset. The figure (let’s be honest, me) looks pensive and beneath it says “TFW you’re thinking of having the cock sent to White Pass” (White Pass is our next town and I’m honestly sorry to make the joke less funny by explaining the punchline but I know that won’t make sense to most so I HAD TO.) There’s this idea in thru hiking that if you’re wearing something it doesn’t count as a part of your base weight, so Bogwitch, Carrot and I also kick around some meme ideas having to do with the cock and wearing it while hiking etc etc and we’re laughing so hard I could cry. The last meme we think of is a shot of a hand, very dirty except the two gay sexy fingers, which are very clean. The meme says: my hand looks like this so that her’s can look like this (here there will be a shot of a hiker hand clutching a sleeping pad in ecstasy). ANYWAY these are all fucking hilarious, but if I had to make a Venn diagram of thru hikers and queers, I think the overlap would be woefully small.
3) It did not rain yesterday, and it did not rain today. The defining characteristic of this hike has been rain (there’s never been two days without it) and I am so ecstatic I can hardly speak.
