Day 143- One State Away

Day 143- One State Away

Bonjour,

That's a new greeting, right? Hehe. We woke up at five, but didn't want to get up til the sun was out to warm us up. We hung out a while in the tent and made some hot cocoa, but were pretty slow moving. There was the usual ice on the tent poles and the rainfly, but we managed to get going and pack up. By 8 we were walking and we pulled out the radio again to listen to. We took an early break for some of the vanilla cream cookies we had bought and some coffee. The walk was pretty easy, but another blister formed on my left pinky toe in the same spot that was quite irritating. 

At noon we took another break for lunch at a rest stop and made some mashed potatoes. We sat for a while and groomed ourselves a bit. I was feeling really stinky without a shower in so long and wearing the same clothes for multiple days. After that we became pretty serious about creating a jingle for the Black Diamond Auto Glass contest. We came up with a pretty good one too, but never ended up entering it. That pretty much got us through the rest of the day. We knew we were coming up on Arizona before the end of the day, but right before the state line a woman warned us about the police. From what she said we decided to camp on the New Mexico state line side and start walking through Arizona in the morning to avoid any police interactions. 

One state away,

Shikira
