... and interesteing. We headed right way to the distant seastack which normally is deep in surf, but at 8' low tide lots of cool stuff was exposed. We could have spent all day there......tons of pics of strange creatures there. After several hours, we continued south and eventually hit that shithole Abeerdeen.

Over 8 miles, that is about 14000 squeaks. I tried but couldn’t get the squeak fixed while I had it on so I took it off and knocked the frame around a bit. Surprisingly that worked and I enjoyed a silent hike from there on out. Silent but painful.
For the remaining 7 miles, I thought I was having a heart attack. Pain in my chest, couldn’t feel my arms and I swear, I ...
