Off we go, once again back to the trail. I did check the weatherforecast just before we left town.
There is Dale! Our meetup works out perfectly!
Alright! Enough zero days!
We bloody gotta do “The Basin” now! No point in waiting any longer!
“Lightning storms you can come! Bring ’em’ on!
Plan A stands!
Felix just talked on the phone to Barbara. He got her phone number from the local grocery store.
I am laying in my hotel bed in South Fork. Felix went over to the gasstation to get us our mandatory pizza! Yes! They sell Pizza at gasstations in the US!
Alright, just some tiny more roadwalking and then we will hit Grants, our next town for shower, food, resupply, laundry, bed!
So here we are, out in the desert of New Mexico!
Felix and I keep reminding ourselves, that we are actually out here “doing it!”
We are driving through Arkansas, Texas and New Mexico! Well Dale and Felix do all the work, I am just happily sitting in the back of the van, looking at the landscape go by.
Oh my goodness it has been a busy few months! Constantly working, constantly glimpsing at my ever growing todo lists! (Note the plural here!)
Constantly rather exhausted!
Decision made! I will do this “ice axe, crampons and self arresting” course in order to prepare for my next thru hike!! I am all set, the plane to Inverness, Scotland, leaves in 7 hours. So I better get some sleeping done.
