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!
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!
So yes, we made it all the way to Colorado! For quite a while now we have been thinking that we need to bail out once we make it to Colorado.
I mean, bloody hell, it’s still snowing up here!
Off we drive into Albuquerque, aka the “Meth Capitol”. (You guys who have seen “Breaking Bad” know what I mean!)
Alright, just some tiny more roadwalking and then we will hit Grants, our next town for shower, food, resupply, laundry, bed!
We make it out to Highway 12 where Dale picks us up one last time. Everything going smooth, the van is right there! No “Dale” adventure this time!
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.
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.
“Hey there everybody!”
Long time no see! I missed you guys!
We haven’t heard from each other in an awfully long while. But this will change, as I am slowly but surely getting into “CDT Preparation Mode”!
