Mail drop! Got my box of maps and food, then got the hell out of town before the previous night’s exposure to pop culture had my buy a new car, artificial flavored puffed crackers, or that heart medication whose side effects include nausea and increased risk of stroke. Three separate rides got me back to the pass and I was home again. Beautiful trail views and perfect weather. I was soaking this all in, watching raptors float in the air when I realized I forgot to do laundry in town. For crying out loud! I must have seen 30 TV ads for laundry soap, but I just sat in my room in my filthy clothes. They would have just gotten dirty again anyway, I guess.
- Starting Location: lazy day in town
- Destination: on the trail and still dirty
