Bushcamp (1363.9) Old Station (1377.9)
Hiking into a trail town with the promise of real food always promises a cracking pace. 14 miles in about 4 hours. The trail was either flat or downhill with views of near Mt Lasson. Mr & Mrs Smith set a cranking pace, they have good reason which I will reveal later.
The town of Old Station is not much more than an RV Park and a post office. I picked up my food from the post office, I sent it to myself back in Lake Tahoe. Unfortunately my camera and trekking poles that I ordered will not arrive until tomorrow afternoon, but that’s ok our trail family are all staying here for the night. While sitting outside the post office a strange thing happened. A guy, a horse, a dog and 2 baby camels turned up. Only in a small town.
All of us then hitch hiked 4 miles to JJs Cafe for lunch/dinner. I rolled out of there after gorging myself. As is usual I eat a burger. I would dearly love to eat something different but choice is limited. My body is wasting away so I feel I can eat as much as I can.
The afternoon is spent on the Internet. Oh and also celebrating Mrs Smiths Birthday. Happy Birthday Mrs Smith.
