DAY 25 Heading to Pie Town

8th May.2022

Not sure what happened but I over slept or maybe I swit he’d it off Instead of snoozing .

At 6am I strippeddown made a cupp as I packed up. As I was packing up Marmot came by the lady I scared yesterday.

I wason trail by 6.30. It wasa cool morning Thank god.but I decided that I didn’t need my outer shirt.

My early pace was good and I soon caught Marmot but was sure to call out first.

I walked with her for a while and enjoyed her company. Finding out about her hike and reasons for doing it. 

Okay I need more miles so wished her well and strolled off. 

I hadgood pace and it wasn’t long until I arrived at the Davila Ranch.

As I made my way in 

OMG sat eating were Shoes,Chameleon  and Calvin. Just leaving were the two  girls  “Fast food and Dollar General”  they asked for copies of them at the hot springs. 

Snail your first in line for the shower.  I walked in and took offmost of my clothes and stuck them in the washing machine. 

I asked the gang had they seen hawkeye  or Dr Rob.

They are behind you snail!

Noway  they can’t be …Can they ?

I headed to the shower.  Omg this was a great shower powerful  and hot a rare conbination.

So I’m clean.i wasn’t really hungry but the food the gang was eating looked so good I decided to make some myself. Potato.onions eggs and beans  yummy.

It’s all free well for a donation. 

I started cooking and was so good 

 At last the washing  was done so I next  the dryer.  While waiting i starting charging my gear

Omg I could have sat here all day.

MARMOT arrived and decided to boil some eggs ..Nice.

Asi had service I was able to order z new bag and a steripen  great that was a result they will be at Grants.

Okay I need to leave.just as I was packing up the owner arrived what an amazing  bloke. So chilled and laid back.

I left fully watered up as I was  planning to hike just outside town

I set off down the road I had a great pace that’s what a good dinner will do.

I was cruising and miles falling  but gradually as the hours ticked by the speed dropped.

Have to say the 13 miles from the ranch to Pie Town didn’t seem to friendly as virtually every 200 yards were no trespassing. Go away bugger off signs

Mmm..very freindly

At 4.30 I was running out if steam  and still lugging far too much water.i stopped for a break and poured 2 litres away.

Well I wasn’t camping along this road do didn’t need it.

At last I was entering  Pie Town. Phew now where is the toaster hse. A man pointed the way.. at last I’m here I walked in the back and saw Ducky.

whats the score Ducky I asked. 

Just throw up your tent.

I  soon had it up then went to the porch about a dozen hikers were here and do many friendly faces. 

The girls were here and shoved a beer in my hand the back of the hostel were  dozens of shoes  tied to the  wall.

Some are hikers who give up and leave there shoes others are where hikers swap out their first pair.

I had a new pair waiting  for me two hopefully.


I joined in with my fellow hiker trash. Chating laughing and drinking. But I was tired and soon bed was calling. 

Mileage 17
