Now the Motel 6 is not a patch on the Besty Westy! It’s pretty noisy. Although I had a shower last night I still wasn’t clean so after I had gone to buy some shampoo and conditioner for my hair, and spent half an hour removing the dreadlocks, I finally felt squeaky clean. We got our stinky laundry done early this morning and I bumped into Marathon John as he was leaving town to get back on the trail.
The morning was spent doing chores. Eating, going to the supermarket, buying a new hat – well a visor, much cooler, and posting the bear canister back. Bye bye bear canister!!
Unfortunately the supermarket and post office are at opposite ends of town and by 1pm I had walked further than that 6 mile day on the trail!
ALL afternoon was spent sat by the pool updating the blog, getting covered in a fine yellow dust from the pollen that’s invading town.
For dinner we went to Fasta Pasta, recommended by another hiker. It was pretty good and I got to play some Super Mario while we waited for our food, which we took back to the Motel and ate in bed!!
Tomorrow we are back on the trail…
