Day 72- Wild Hogs

Day 72- Wild Hogs

 

Howdy,
It rained a bit in the morning, but the tent dried out pretty quickly and we packed up. I felt the weather change that day, summer is about gone! It was incredibly windy that morning. We walked til we reached Earle. It was a small town, and it was not that nice. A woman suggested a BBQ place and although Levi enjoyed his sandwich, I had hot wings that were not cooked enough and couldn't eat.
Not much happened the rest of that day. We stopped for powerades and a short rest. At one point this man with a dog and walkman walked towards us. It is always strange when someone else is walking on roads like we do. We walked by a golf course all of a sudden which seemed kind of out of place, but found a camp spot soon after. By eight thirty we were asleep, but two hours later woke up to a crazy noise. It was an animal noise I have never heard before! A squeaky, snarly bark. Levi shined the light, but it was far enough away that we couldn't see it, just hear its very loud noise. It went on for about five min and scared us both a bit. My heart was racing. It never came back to bother us, but it definitely interrupted our sleep the rest of the night. After talking to some people the next day, we deduced it was a wild hog. Wow!
Crazy night,
Shikira
