July 9th 2022
It’s a zero but I was up early as chores still need to be done. But first breakfast, they give you 50 % off so why not try.
I had the cracker barrel that was half a waffle , bacon, sausage scrambled egg and fried potatoes
It was tasty but the waiter I had was not brilliant.
Okay to town….. I walked to where the bus stops.
There were two hot air balloons just taking off I looked around to see if there were others. But only the two
I didn’t have to wait long for the bus, it starts locally and winds it’s way around the ski area under the gondolas before heading out of town but into downtown.
This is where all the shops and bars are. I got off and went to look for a barbers as I was looking a little like a scarecrow .
I found it, it’s walk in, you have to put your name on a list and wait for your name to be called. There were about 6 people waiting but the wait was about 10 minutes so it wasn’t long until I was in the chair .
The lady did a great job and tidied up my beard thank god. Okay next is the Post office, it was at the other end but not far.
I soon found it and walked in walked in and to the counter, handing over my driving licence.
To my surprise all 3 of my boxes were here as I had ,had automated messages saying they were being returned to sender.
So I re- bounced them up the trail. I was just finishing up when Monk appeared he was posting a supply box then he was heading back.
Okay next the market as I’ve heard good things about Quiche that’s sold from one of the stalls. But sadly when I got there they were sold out. But a T-shirt caught my eye so went back and brought it, followed by a large fresh lemonade.
I sat under a tree in the park as my watch said it was 97 and it felt it.
Okay I need to resupply then laundry… but as I walked to the bus stop I passed by an ice cream shop and walked out with a tub of huckleberry ice-cream oh it was so good . OK bus…. I got on and began chatting to a lady from Chicago.
Then Monk got on trying to get out of town. I was supposed to get off at the Walmart stop but I missed it so stayed on the bus to go around again. Okay this time I will get off.
I went to the grocery shop instead. I didn’t need much but still bought too much but that included lunch and dinner too.
I caught the bus back and went straight to my room, then to reception to get change and soap powder. Okay laundry is in .
Lunch time, I brought salad some ham , potato salad and had a leisurely lunch washed down with sprite.
Okay next to decant my purchases .mm I have too much food. See if I can carry it.
Okay washing is drying ,so now I can relax.
Back to the trail tomorrow and heading to Wyoming whoop whoop
So more lemonade and trash TV
