I made it out of the wilderness alive.
And this nasty picture is all the proof I have that I was there.
Was it rough? Most definitely.
Was it worth it? I'm still working on that one... but I think the answer is yes.
p.s. the only reason I look happy in this picture is because this was the day I got to ride in the gator to my spot instead of hiking the ump-teen miles to it. Riding in a gator is fun. If I ever do this again, I'm insisting on one for my own personal use.
