My body just feel like lead lately - I think it has something to do with this awful heat combined with humidity. I have a tough time getting out of bed in the morning and I'm supposed to be heading out backpacking again tomorrow. I'm headed out to the Coachella Valley to work today - that should be nice and warm.
Sure sorry you're not feeling too well - I completely understand about the wx having an affect. Either way I do truly feel you have the mental strength and persistence to make so many summits that others (e.g. me) would just throw in the towel.
I'm two weeks away from finishing a large project at work then I can finally get out in the mountains myself.
