I sleep really well when I don’t have to get up
I put on the coffee machine and stepped into the shower.
Oh nice hot water , treat 😋
I got dry and drank my coffee.
Okay snail Positive thoughts !!!!
I grabbed the paper work and headed for the post office
I joined the queue,as I was waiting Chameleon arrived.
Okay my turn.they still were unable to locate my box that says it was delivered here. But they will look again after lunch. They advised me that my other box was at chama Colorado and try to ring and the other was at Elpaso Texas.
I tried customer services no help.
Okay I rang the first PO The man was helpful and said it had been returned to sender. So Lordsburg.
I rang Lordsburg next ,it wasn’t there yet so.i left a forwarding address.
Next was Texas but no answer after a dozen rings
Okay I need some fresh air so went for a walk up the road .I called in at the local store. But most of the shelfs had been stripped by us hikers there appears to be high numbers this year. But I managed to get needles and thread to repear my pack.
Wandering back through town I recognised several hikers in the garden of the coffee shop,sat by a huge fire pit. Seems every body is waiting for a box or missing a box .
Okay mind made up now I will reorder kit when I get back to my hotel and hike out tomorrow..
So ordered and sent to Pagosa
I then visited the post office 1 more time they again were really helpful. But sadly no box.but again I left forwarding address just in case.
Okay I feel a lot better even though I’ve spent another $300 on replacement kit.
Okay relax .I finished off my potato salad and ham.followed by a fruit jelly washed down with a beer.
I then repaired by pack.it looks okay well will do .(hopefully)
Now to do nothing
Well I heard from fellow hikers out on trail that there are blizzards up there and they are bailing so …..
I have booked another day in town.
Omg just had email from.post office they have found a box .
Not sure which one . But I’ll go grab it tomorrow . Excited !!
So now tv beer and chill.
Mileage still zero
