"My kid was doing 10 mile days at 4"
Andrew Skurka? ;)
Seriously though, I find this thread very informative. I have a little nephew, and while I did anticipate short days, bringing along some toys/luxury items, and cooking tastier meals with treats - I never thought about the darkness thing, wierd noises at night, etc. Sometimes I get scared! :)
Thanks for the heads up.

Geez, at least he's out there! Good job Sarah!
