First, woo a 30 mile day! We kinda weren’t on the right trail at the end and just bushwhacked to Delmoe Lake. Went for a very quick swim and am now hiding in my tent from mosquitos.
Now backing up – we road walked a bunch more in the am and then hit the I15 corridor for lunch. Chance hatched a scheme to have a pizza place deliver us a pizza and sodas to the I15 exit we were at. The second call was a success and pizza was enroute! ET was around too but he decided not to wait (crazy will power on that guy, I could not have resisted). Pizza arrived an hour later with a pretty surprised delivery guy. We took lots of pictures. Afterwards, like good hikers we exercised “Leave No Trace” and burned the box and carried the cans from pop away with us.
We finally got on to some decent trail in the afternoon and were propelled forwards by relentless mozzy attacks. That’s really why we managed a 30 mile day. Now it’s bed time!
Oh, one more thing! We saw a kid on a bike wearing full German camouflage with a gun on his hip. Quite odd I thought, but that could be the Canadian in me talking 🙂
