Day Three – tea in bed at ‘Cab Creek’.

‘Cab Creek’ and not ‘Wahoo Point’. While hiking yesterday, I decided that if I arrived at the spot where I needed to start bushwhacking towards our ‘Wahoo Point’ campsite before six, I’d carry on and camp at ‘Cab Creek’. I arrived at six exactly, and carried straight on for another couple of miles or so, stopping at ‘Cab Creek’. Doing so upped my day’s hike from under six miles to nearly eight.

This area was farmed and clear-cut not too long ago, so it is very scrubby. It was also cold overnight. So much for the forecast. It dropped to 33°F, that said, I was warm tucked up in my hammock. That expands the temperature range of my summer gear, which is comfort rated to 40°F. Excellent news — weight and space savings when hiking in the ‘Shoulder Seasons’.
