Day 12 leaving Buro

I had set my alarm to 4.45.  But I began to hear noises far earlier. And when I stuck my head out the gang had gone omg that really really early. 

I let the air out of my mattress and began the task of waking up.

I had slept well but was still tired.

As last I was ready  I walked the distance to the club house used the facilities .hoised up my pack switched on my head torch and  headed out.

Omg  I don’t know what was wrong with me but I  was puffing and  panting  and wheezing.  . Fuck come on snail. I slowly made it out of the complex and back onto the dirt road.  It was still pitch dark but again the stars looked amazing. I hadn’t gone far  but thought I would just check as there were several roads  in….

To my utter shock guthooks had decided to go blank on me again .fuck fuck really I spent all yesterday trying to  fix it and it was working but no not today 

I made my way up the road hoping that it was the right one

At last a Cdt marker. Thank fuck i said.  And  pushed on down thectrail e and  my legs were working. The trail appeared easy to follow and I felt I was doing great. As the day progressed I passed several tents.the occupants we’re just rising. Morning.

I pased by and continued on the 

 trail.  The trail was really nice just how I like it. I came to my first gate . Near by was another tent.

On i pushed.  It was  going to be  a long day 20 miles to water. I wasn’t sure if I could do that. 

But it was still cool  as thecsun was yet to rise and I felt good . 

The trail and the miles passed by .several hikers passed me  not hard to do lol. Then I came to a   climbs  and it was steep and long and by now i was hot. At the next crossing I stoped and removed my outer shirt (it was cold this morning).

That’s better I pushed on until  9am and took my break. I took off my shoes dressed any wounds . And ate some snacks . Okay back to the trail.  I went to open the next gate but  it was so tight

Luckily a   a German hiker appeared ,  her name was  bbq chicken. We opened and closed the gate together then i hiked on . The sun was now  hot at 78  phew and it was uphill for a while

The next section was littered with felled trees..

 I wondered why maybe not a proper species ? In the background I could heat chain saws so they must be still at it.

I then came to a large bottle of water.great I drank a few Swiss itcwa cold.

AT the next road I came across the tree fellers. I asked why ,?

One of the Katie’s said these tres drink too much water so the others die..so

The trail now had become a mystery  which way do I go.at last I found it . But the trail was messy and of cours up and the sun was now trying to melt me .

Okay i will push on  until 1 pm

After my last climb I saw people it was the 4 who were now 3 

Wheres he gone ? He had pushed onbto the next water. 

I dropped my pack  and relaxed.

I said to shoes about my phone and guthooks again . He was also amazed. 

While I had the time I deleted it again and with service  downloaded a freah install and again it worked. 

Guthooks was fine . But the new owners keep adding g crap that no one wants  grrr

Shoesxwas caring far too.much water so he gave me a a litre. 

They moved off 9.6 to water.

I wasn’t sure if I had 9.6 in me but set off after them.

It was stillmelting out there  98. So I stopped and rigged up my brolly so a lite extra shade  but it was hot.

I pushed until 4 thrn took another break  still 6 to go ..NO

Okay back to the trail.at a road junction I took a wrong turn and rhre was a wat  cache. Bloody great. That gives me options. 

The trail marched down a dirt track before switching to a river bed.my fav A its just sand crap to walk through. I marched on for hrs I would have put up mt tent but there was  no where

The time ticked by. Then I spied a place. It would be a  compromise  but in done.

I threw up my tent then began to cook.i made a cup of tea and a cup of hot chocolate. Then cooled couscous.  But the mix made fat too much.i havnt yet go my trail  hunger.  So ended up loosing about half.

As a treat I had another hot chocolate  in bed.

Mileage  20.6 whoop.

Highest ever. But it felt like
