It was an easy walk to the road. I got the first car to stop. It was packed full so no room for me. A couple minutes later the same car came back with the front passenger seat empty. The mom had squished in the back seat with the 5 year old daughter, car seat and cooler. Awesome!
First stop was the restaurant. I had breakfast with Lenka (now Mermaid), Hardway and Ninja Tortoise. Next was the grocery store… the friendliest place on earth. My resupply box was there. Mermaid, Hardway and I got a room over the store… $25 split 3 ways, 3 single beds.
Later in the day Atlas showed up! It was so awesome to see him again. I last saw him in Etna.
I’ve been driving myself crazy with the weather forecast. Thunderstorms are predicted and this next section is beautiful. I want to see it. Leaving right away would have been the best for weather. But waiting for Atlas was the best for so many other more important reasons.
