ExhaustionDear Benefactor,

I’ve had 3 1/2 hours of sleep in the past 27 hours. 

Probably not a good time to take up hiking again, eh? I told you about my fear of bears and cougars and murderers in the woods in my 41st letter to you. I’d be sure to walk into danger in the comatose state I’m in right now, don’t you think?

I’m going to do my darnedest to accomplish at least one hike before the year 2020 is out. I will keep you updated.
