Day 110- Twenty Two Degrees

Day 110- Twenty Two Degrees

Hey all,

Last night before setting up camp, we could see the blinking lights of what may have been a store up in the distance. This morning we packed up and headed that direction to see if we could land some hot coffee and a donut. As we got closer we found out that it was just a random furniture store. A furniture store! To say the least, we were disappointed. As we walked passed we did notice that there was another door in the building that didn't have a store front name. We walk up to find out that it was a diner. The Cowboy Oasis was completely dead and we even asked if they were still open. The waitress said that they were and that we could take a seat anywhere. She was really nice and the menu had some good options. I got an omelet and Kira got the french toast. Once again I spent a majority of my time on the toilet. On the plus side the restrooms were really nicely decorated and decently clean. We were the only customers the entire time we were there, except one man who stepped in for a soda. We chatted with him and the waitress before hitting the windy road.

Not far before we found a small camp area with a fun oversized arrow planted in the ground. We chatted it up with a group of bikers that were warming up with a couple of beers (go figure). Then we hit the road again. We worked our way into the middle of nowhere. At least 6 people pulled over to ask if we needed a ride, or if our car was broken down. Many were concerned because the temp was supposed to get into the low 20's at night. We ate ramen on the side of the road for lunch and enjoyed the scenery. We passed many cattle farms and the smell nearly knocked us over. We would up finding a nice dip on the shoulder just outside a drainage tunnel.

We suited up for below freezing night. I switched sleeping bags with Shikira and she used the silk liner to add some warmth. I wrapped my feet in her jacket and put on all my layers. I stuffed the foot section of her sleeping back in my rain jacket to trap in the heat. We were both really tired because the coyotes kept us up all night last night. Right to sleep, we hoped that the cold wouldn't wake us up.

To warmth,

Levi
