DAY 108 Zero in Dubois

July 30th

My alarm went off at 6 am.i snoozed it several times before switching it off.

Okay im up.i went and booked a second night . Okay done .

Breakfast.  The cafe belongs to the motel so i walked across and in and grabbed a the back was 5 course.and behind me was a couple whose names I havnt got yet and across the side was gerber, joker  and the no name.

I went for bacon and eggs  with coffee and and orange juice.

Bloody tasty. 

Okay chores .

Post office first. It was I walked in Kid and  xxx was there.

I bounced 3 boxes  to Darby picked up my new shoes and my extra  battery.

Shoes no 4.

I then headed back to try and sort out my Resupply and  yellowstone permit.  I realy need a pc  rather phone as its hard to plan.

Typically the libary in town is not open until Wednesday   Crap oh well.

Okay I’ve decided to bounce my old shoes . I don’t want to hike in them as thry are done but they are still good for off trail. 

Whilst I was in the post office I  heard a few customers talking about the “,beer festival “

Well that’s worth a look . But I.need to go shopping first .

I didn’t need much but I still seem to spend $80.i took my bags back to my room and decanted most into ziiplocks.

Okay lets seem what  the beer festival has in store. 

There was several band playing about a dozen local breweries.several food trucks and stallls. I brought a wrist band for $30 and began to sample.there ales were some geat onesand a few odd ones 

It was a beautiful day and I mingled with with  several locals.

They insisted  thst I come back  at 2.30 to watch this fairly well know musician from Wyoming .

As I needed to try snd get yellowstone permits sorted

I have to say the man from yellowstone was so patient with me as I havnt a clue what I was trying to do.maybe I should have tried to do this in Pinedale when I had access to a pc   but  hindsight. I needed a map my route and I didn’t have.

The yellowstone man helped me and gave me the info.i needed to try and plan a route I will try to an this later and ring him back in the morning once again fingers crossed.

Okay I headed back to the beerfestival and sampled more ales  

I stated to 4.30 but then I felt I needed to pack up dort out my stiff and generally get ready to hike on.

Then the main act came on his name Jalon  Crossland.he was really good and  fun to watch  and listen too.

So reluctantly I headed back .grabbed two cans  and chips for later.

Once back I went on line and downloaded several maps . Which was much easier now I was pointed in the right way.

So I have 4 campsites marked now hopefully I can book them tomorrow 

Once again fingers crossed.

Okay i jumped in the shower and once out began to pack up


That’s my day
