I am holding up really well with this situation. The skin on my hands are peeling away probably due to the type of soap used in washing the dishes. Anyway, how would I experience things if I won’t give it a shot, right? It’s all about doing something different. And sleeping on firm wood is very different from sleeping on a puffy matress with pillows and such. My first night was awful. I had several mosquito bites on my arms and legs, my back hurts, and the fine foam in my sleeping bag did not do any justice to my night in the mountain. I know I am complaining a lot. Maybe the following days, I could get used to this. Aaaack!
