2007-05-22 The Saufley’s

May 22nd, 2007

A true Zero Day here at the Saufley’s house. I’m very much settled into the early wake ups now so by 6 am I was in the mobile home thing and frying bacon and eggs. As skinny as I was before starting this adventure I’ve lost weight in the last 33 days and today I found a lot of it again. I planned out how and where to meet Dad in June, posted a bunch of stuff to myself along the trail and bought food for the next week. A very good use of a town day for sure.

Vortex and Blue Sky didn’t have so much luck. They did all that but were also organising a new cellphone to replace the one that was in their bounce box* when they sent it but not when it arrived here, and when they went to get their new hardware the car broke down and Jeff & Donna had to go rescue them. But then some thing great happened. Fester organised a quick whip-round and most of us put in a few bucks to help them out with replacement costs.

The fire is now down to embers and I’m in my sleeping bag really looking forward to getting somewhere tomorrow. I know the herd is right behind me so I want to get moving and across the desert.

*bounce box = a box/bucket/container that you send from one town to the next, adding or removing things you need for each section.
