I woke late and listened to the world around me. Once up the hostel was buzzing
We all headed to the lodge on mass for the all you can eat buffet $22
We had to wait several minutes until they could accommodate us.
Once seated coffee arrived then i headed for the buffet.
Grabbed a plate and dug in. scrambled egg, country potatoes and bacon. Although I wish they wouldn’t cook the bacon so much. This was followed by pancakes smothered in huckleberry sauce, divine.
I devoured several bowls of fresh fruit salad before going for more bacon and eggs.
All this was washed down with several vats of orange juice and coffee.
Once I could eat no more I headed to the hostel
Next job:- Permits!!!
I can’t hike any further until I obtain these I managed to catch a lift to “Two medicine” with Legs.
I wasn’t bothered about doing big miles though legs wanted 28’s.
I left most of the planning to the Ranger as I didn’t want to do big mileage .I wanted to make the most of the “End”
So I have a mix of 18 and 15 miles to the border so about 7 days. sorted.
Others are doing 28’s that’s too much especially as the finish line is in sight
Okay laundry time, I rounded up my stinky gear and headed to the laundrette . An hour later I’m done and headed back.
Next chore was the post office, there was a ride organised so I tagged on.
The postoffice lady thought I was moving in with the amount of boxes I had here. Far too many……
I grabbed my gear and headed back omg can I carry all of this stuff in my pack ……
I went through my gear and filled my pack. As I’m chilling there is a steady stream of hikers arriving and leaving so many faces new and old to wish well and safe travels too.
.Next job shower as I stink. Omg that’s so good I’m clean…for a while.
Once my chores are done it’s just chilling time. Beer and veg out…..
