I quickly packed up as the Brewery do a hiker breakfast for 5bucks.
I wandered over looking for where I had to go until I spotted other hikers so knew I was at the right place.
I dropped my pack wiyth the other packs and went inside . I paid my 5$ and received coffee, a large bowl of oatmeal followed by a plate with scrambled egg, sausage, 2 biscuits (scones) and fried potatoes, both bowl and plate were soon empty
I was then given a free t-shirt, which i though was very clever marketing as hikers going south and north would soon be wearing them giving the brewet some great advertising .
I grabbed another coffe and was relaxing , when Bob and then Zippy appeared
I chatted to several other hikers befgore realising that i had miscalculated my days.
Wainsboro is where my new pack is and so if hike the next bit I wouldn’t be able to get my pack until Monday. that wastes me a weekend in Wainsboro and i didnt want to do that . I was in a dilema
AS i sat pondering what to do a bunch of hikers piled into a pick up for the trip back to the trailhead
Bugger . Okay hitch it is ,I walked back to the road and put out my trusty thumb.
Must be lucky as got a ride quickly . anywhere near Wainsboro post office please.
The journey took 30 mins ..My driver Ron offered to wait and take me to the hostel after.
As i walked into the post office i had my fingers crossed that it was here otherwise this will be another wasted day
The post office was fait empty so I was served quickly and given a large box great .
Thank god for that , as this was my pack whoop .I thanked the lady and got ack to the car.
As we drove through the town, Ron pointed out restaurants and the outfitters most of which went straight out my other ear.
We then pulled into the hostel , The owner xxxanimal showwd me arround and gave me choices of rooms .
I grabbed a bunk and then began to empty my pack and put my gear into my shiny new one. I then put my old pack into the new box. taped it up and headed back to the post office. It was rather expensive to send home, but it’s on its way !!
As I was leaving I bumped into some freinds .
We are going for the Chinese Buffet Snail you want to come? Bumble Bee said
Yes why not
The restaurant was a few blocks away . Wow what an amazing place there were rows and rows of food and Coy carp swimming inside.
My first plate was spring rolls and other deep fried favourites.
Plate two was lots of different chicken dishes and noodles.
well after my 5th visit I was stuffed, but I could still manage pudding…. Rude not too.
Afterlunch my friends wanted to visit the outfitters , so I came along for the ride.
The outfitters had a great section of kit. I grabbed gas, a plastic cup and some energy drink mix.
Once back at the hostel I updated some videos and cleared down my phone .
I then decided to go shopping there was Dollar General a few blocks away I brought some bits , before heading to walmart to finish off and buy beer and fruit.
Once back I decanted my food., Typically i have brought far too much oh well I will eat it.
Once my chores were done I sat out in the sun, ate an orange and drank a large lemonade I was now relaxed and ready for beer.As it began to get dark i came inside . most people were ordering pizza but I was a little tired of pizza so cooked up something from my horde of food. an spent the rest of the evening watching Adam Sandlar in a film on Netflix.
Then it was zzzz
