I Woke around 6 from the voices of other hikers getting ready to head out but as i wasn’t so rolled over
It wasn’t until I needed a wee
Did I move.
The two cyclist were heading out and hopefully before it rained.
I joined in the conversation for a bit then made tea.
It seemed a relaxing morning but then the rain came.
I grabbed my gear and headed for my tent.
I finished my tea as the rain became heavier and heavier
I pulled my bag up to get warmer.
I woke several hours later.
And silence …..
Okay to the shops. I went to the bathroom and plugged in my battery block then headed to the shops.
It’s a mile walk such fun.
I visited the gift shop first and brought myself the obiligotory Yellowstone hat .
Okay now to resupply.
But once out side I bumped into Graz xxx and special K .
They had a ride to old faithful.. I had planned on doing that tomorrow.
Okay shopping I did the rounds and mmm a bit pricey but hey its touristy.
I had brought a sub for later but fancied something hot
So visited the grill.
It was very disappointing hotdog or pulled pork sandwich. I went for the hot dog. But because of covid there is no eating inside. So I sat outside and scoffed my food.
Then it began to pour and they only issue paper bags for your shopping
That would make it back to the camp site. So I went to buy a carrier bag. The lady took pity on me and found me a box and some plastic to go over it.
Okay I headed back hoping for a lift but no.
Once back I put the box into my tent and went to check on my battery block.
Horror it’s not there.
So.i headed back to camp registration. Phew
..it had been handed in as the janitors presumed it had been forgotten.
So I walked back and plugged it back in.
Then back at my tent I decanted my foods then woofed my sub and drank a few beers. Until.i got bored
I grabbed my Stinky clothes and headed again up the road only 1/2 mile this time
I found a machine and began the cycle. More exciting than lying in a damp tent. WHOOP. drying time.
Okay all done. I brought a cornetto to eat on the way back. Once back I dropped my
Clothes back into my tent then went to check on ny battery bank.
Omg its missing again.
So yet another walk back to camp registration.
The lady was very apologetic and added that she had plugged it in.
So I headed back to my tent spot and plugged it in once more.
It was now teatime so time to eat i cooked a packet of ramin with baby sausage. Very tasty.
Then as the rain returned headed back to my tent.
I had a good tidy dumped all my trash then settled in.
Oh forgot to say they have bear boxes so every thing is stored.
I got into my bag and enjoyed a story from an audio book that I had brought and relaxed listening too until I dropped off. So need to find where I got to ha ha
