Day 11 - Exhausted

Thursdays are one of my toughest days.  I work for the majority of the day and I have physical therapy after work to exercise and strengthen my legs.  By the time I am finished with that, I am DONE.   I need to fillet two striped bass sometime in the evening as well.  I am looking forward to having some fresh fish soon.  My plan is to smoke some of it and keep some of it for cooking.  It won't all keep very long if I ration it for regular meals so the smoking and dehydrating process will be needed to preserve it for a longer period of time.

The squirrel/rabbit traps have been a challenge so far.  I have not managed to trap anything.  The animals seem to set the traps off frequently but are either too quick to get caught or have found a way to escape.  I will have to start using my superior intellect and continue to make modifications to the traps in order to make them more effective.  We'll see.
