So, late last night Joe called me and told me he got disorientated and was hiking back to hwy 113. We kind of messed up and I never gave him my GPS with the preloaded bear creek track. I think the track is only for this section and I honestly don't even know how it got on my GPS... I think maybe I downloaded it from the Econo Lodge computer. It is pretty awesome, by simply turning on my GPS, I can know where the trail is and if I'm on it. Regardless, he spent all morning trying to get a ride from hwy 113 to town, but no one picked him up. Again, goes to show how lucky I got. Eventually, Eric, the kid from yesterday, showed up, and Joe decided to hike with him. Negatively it delays us and jeopardizes Joe's exit date, one of the reasons I came in early to rest. On the other hand it gives me a little more rest for my feet and leg. My only fear is all of this money I'm spending on the hotel room is going to keep me from getting a hotel down the line. I've always wondered what it's like to sleep under a freeway bridge...
Check out that sweet new shirt, I'll have no problems hitch hiking looking that good.
A little before that Atlas (Chris) showed up looking like he had just come out of a war zone. He stayed dazed like that for a couple of hours. We shared the hotel room and took another walk into town. Later that afternoon God decided to let the heavens rain down on us and the streets were flowing with mini rivers. I hope there weren't any flash floods out there.
I'm starting to get a little stir crazy and really need to get out of this town. Everyone that works at the hotel knows my name and I know their names.
