The were a few particular challenges on this trip that made it very enjoyable. One being starting a fire in wet conditions. We were able to use leaves and waterproof matches on top of a rock that we placed in a hole to block out the wind. It got down to 30 degrees with high-speed winds so the fire was nice. Another challenge is having type 1 diabetes. Managing blood sugars for a newly diagnosed guy like me is already hard. When you carry 30 lbs for 10 miles it creates different challenges. After doing 4 trips since diagnosis I have dialed it in a lot more and my blood sugar levels are actually great while I’m on trail now. All in all it was a great trip, we stayed warm and dry, tested out some bushcraft skills, and enjoyed hanging out together before I leave the military.
