Day 43:Luck! I decided to camp here for the night, and while digging a snow tunnel, I unearthed the first green plant I've seen in months! Taking advantage of this fact I dug up the roots to use as fuel for a fire and I'm going to find some use for the leaves. In these conditions you can't afford to waste anything. I caught a passing snow hare this afternoon. I never knew it tasted so good. I'm going to get a good nights sleep tonight. Maybe I'll wake up and it will turn out this was all just a dream. I'll be with my family again, my wife and children. No...no need to get false hope. But at least I have the memories. My morale is way up, and I'm ready for the long trek that lies ahead of me.
