Day 113- Better at Last

Day 113- Better at Last

Hallelujah,

A bit graphic, but I pooped solid this morning! So happy, plus my appetite was back. I ate three yogurts and tons of pastries for breakfast. I got some days up online so that you guys would know what was going on (left you with the 22 degree cliff hanger). We hit the road and was all smiles, ear to ear.

We stopped at Shoe Depot where Shikira got herself a fresh pair of kicks (reeboks). We stopped in at a couple of local places to see if they carried jogging strollers, because with the impending desert we are going to need a way to carry more water. Plus, we are looking for a change of pace. Of course no one had anything, however one sports store offered up the names of some stores in Amarillo that might help. This lead felt like a huge step in the right direction.

I asked Kira if we could stop at Dyer's one more time so that I might actually be able to enjoy some BBQ. She was more than willing and ate enough for two while Kira enjoyed the apricot perserves. I can't tell you how happy I am to be filling better. I left with a full stomach for the first time in a long time and the walk was a lot more pleasant because of it. Leaving the restuarant at three; we had some ground to make up.

We walked for four hours straight and as nightfall coming we passed throught the small town of White Deer. It was nice and small, but we didn't have time to look around. We walked through and looked for a spot to camp.

Camping has changed a lot since our days in the woods. Today we seek refuge behind the cover of a set of raised rail road tracks that parrellel 60. We are in for a noisy night, but I don't think anyone will be bothering us.

To the railroad for supplying cover,

Levi
