Thursday 30th August
I slept really well in a strange tent. thanks to beer May be.
I got up visited the loo then walked to the main area.
Paul cooked me a fab egg roll with cheese washed down with several cups of coffee.
Then it was chore time. Paul dropped me I to town by 9am first it was laundry. While there I did a few emails . Then the Post office omg I had 8 packages which I promptly bounced down the trail. I picked up my poles . I wanted to swap them out but Bollocks. they seem to have stuck in and I couldn’t free them in the Post office. So I wandered down the road to the outfitters. They had a space for hikers with tools.
I almost lost the will to live trying to unsieze them and was about to but a new set of lekis when at last. But then the fun started I couldn’t get the catches to lock and the lekis were almost in my hand but finally I was done.
Next was the library. and to download my phone and upload video.
It was whilst I was here I realised that my power bank ( a huge battery ) had stoped charging .Bollocks and Fuck that’s all I need. so I logged a support call with akon but I need a replacement now.
So i ordered another from.Amazon we will see which one comes first. !
Okay most of my chores are sorted. need feeding and beer
I wandered to the pub. passing a sign thstvteaf half way around he poles. How cool is that.
since in the pub I noticed that they had lobster rolls on the special.board. As I I ordered up two with fries and coleslaw and of course a beer.
Wow how good is a lobster roll.
bloody excellent and awesome.
Okay fed . I wandered back to the gear shop to enquire about a back.up battery. they had one but it was expensive and not quite what I wanted.
I wanted to shop nect . so the asdustant said that she would take me perfect.
I grabbed more beer. snacks, baby cream, spare batteries and then I noticed a small battery pack so brought thst too.
I sorted my gear sat on a bench outside the store as I charged my phone. then walked back to town as thst was my pick up point.
soon I was back at the Hiker Hut. I sat by the fire enjoying a beer before return.ing to my tent.
I sorted out my stuff before laying in bed listening to music eating crisps and quaffing beer. Joy.
