Started the hike last Wednesday, it was an eye opening experience. I’m now back home with some replacement gear on order, hopefully will be back on trail in a week or two at most.
Utter fail on the tracker, I forgot to set the tracking interval on it and it defaulted to 5 minutes. That meant that by the time I was taking my first steps of the hike the battery was already dead. That problem is resolved now, I’ll set it live when I start again.
