We had a lazy morning at the KOA. By the time we had got out of our tents most people had packed up and left (the benefits of being over 60, you’re up super early!). We ate breakfast with Poka and Raddish and did our laundry. I spent most of the morning updated the blog. We found some good reading material and I taped my knees…my knees are ok, the tape is more are preventative measure  at the moment. 


We saw a few people arrive throughout the morning, saw JBird again which was nice. 

It’s funny how quickly you become friends with people out here. 3 days ago I met a guy at Baden Powell and I spoke to him briefly. I saw him come in to the camp ground today and we greeted each other like long lost friends! He was soon telling me about his night on the snowy mountain and his attempt to poop in a ziplock bag! Everyone loves a poo story. 

Cool Breeze got sent a resupply package with too much stuff in so thank you to Cool Breeze’s mum for the ziplock bags, cookies and tissues! 

We were talking to a guy I unfortunately can’t remember the name of but we were talking about having excessive wind since being on the trail – it seems there are lots of people suffering (not just me!), and before you get too enamoured with Cool Breeze – he farts more than anyone!! I say it’s every 5 minutes, he says it’s every 15…

Me, Cool Breeze and Growler started packing up to hike out at around 11 but people kept coming in and we kept talking to find out how everyone was so we ended up leaving just after 1 – right in the heat of the day. We saw Kat and found out about everyone’s night in the snow. 

The heat was not something we were used to after the last few days! A bit of a climb first thing and my left leg went completely numb then I had intense pins and needles, then I had a nose bleed. Then thankfully things started to get better! 

We walked through Vasquez rocks, which was cool.

After 10 miles we arrived in Agua Dulce and resupplied at the supermarket. We ate massive burgers at the cafe (mistake!) and had huge sodas in jars!

We hiked on another 4.5 miles just as it was getting dark. It’s kinda scary in the dark and I was walking so close behind Cool Breeze it must have been painful for him to hold in all the farts. 

We walked until we could find a flat area to camp and set up in the dark. An easy 15 mile day.

Adventure with purpose.

785 million people globally don't have access to clean water. That's 1 in 10 people. In 2020 this is not ok.

I fundraise for Just a Drop in the hope that if I walk thousands of miles for clean water then the people who need to won’t have to. Find out more
