My alarm went off at 7am I silenced it.
Eventually waking up at 9am.
I dressed and went downstairs for breakfast.
I enjoyed what was there before returning to my room.
I finished packing and then discovered that the room service had thrown out my water bottles
So I needed a trip to the grocery store. Then back to my room.
I finished packing and went downstairs to reception.
Burning man was ready so we headed out.
We stood by the road and waited
Several cars past us.
One eventually stopped
Were are you heading guys?
LIMA We replied
Well your on the wrong road he replied
Get in the back I will take you
We both climbed into the back of his pickup
soon we were at the correct road junction.
We thanked our ride and took up the hitching stanch.
After an hour we thought let’s try the off ramp they are slower.
We struggled up the slope to the on ramp meets off ramp
It was less than five minutes we had a ride but we were 20 miles short ..Okay we are closer
I needed the loo and there was a campsite nearby
I left burning man and headed to the campsite and hopefully a loo.
On the way back burning man was engaged in a conversation with a man in a van
But when I arrived it all seemed cool and had a ride
The guy seemed a bit of a know-all but hey we had a ride
And soon we were back in lima
As we drove the weather report on the radio was predicting bad storms.
So I decided to stay and booked a tent space and quickly threw up my tent.
There were tge usual faces here,the Aussies,kid & ?hot sauce.gourmet.Pilgrim, Swiss Cris and several new faces.
Next I headed to the post office and collected my packages. Then grabbed some beer from the gas station
Once back at my tent I sorted my packages .New underwear, my new pillow and headphones
At around 5pm Swiss Chris called me so I went to gourmets room shared with Pilgrim and chilled
At 6.30 we headed down to the bar for dinner another group of hikers were also here.
We grabbed another table and ordered drinks while Pilgrim and Gourmet played pool.
Our waitress took our order and we waited and waited.
It took forever to get our food but eventually it arrived
Most of us had steak and it was really good.
We didn’t stay out late
But a great evening
