Hexacuba Shelter 4Aug05 Day49
The sun and views on top of Mt Cube were enough to persuade me to sit up there and enjoy the day. Bad Cheese also sat up and enjoyed the day with me. This shelter is hexagonal and quite different from the standard lean-to design. Generally, the lean-to is a three walled structure with a slooping roof. This shelter has 4 of 6 walls and a roof with a peak in the middle. There are 4 sobos and 4 nobos. One of which is carrying a homemade banjo.
I am very tired right now. Although it was not a very long day, only 15 miles, I did go to bed quite late and woke up quite early. I will have to pull out some ear plugs to try to ensure a good night's sleep.
I am glad I have stayed in the habit of always doing my journal entries everynight. I have met so many people who had started doing journal entries then started putting them off until they are now quite behind. It can be a pain as it keeps me up when I could be trying to sleep but the discipline is good and it lets me remember things that happened during the day. It is almost like living the day over again. I have only forgotten to do an entry once and I did it the next morning as soon as I remembered.
