Day 144- Springerville Bound

Day 144- Springerville Bound

Howdy,

Out of the bush we crawled behind last night, I played with an animal pelt that had been hung out to dry. Who knows why it had been left behind, I think it was a deer. Less than a hundred steps into our walk and we entered Arizona. Hoping for a 0 dollar budget day, but Kira was licking her lips as we approached town. We would be cutting it close if we tried to make it to Show Low without buying anything extra.

By the time we had the mornings miles under our belt and were passing a Subway sandwich shop we had caved. Luckily the food was cheap and we were really happy to have it. Next on the list of things to do was find a library to update the website and charge our phones. Google said it was less than a mile away, but in reality it was 2 miles off our path. That means 4 extra miles for the day and that was just not an option.

Instead we stopped at a general store to supplement our supply. Nothing there to eat, so we wound up buying a couple of snacks at the gas station prior to leaving town. Next was a public rest stop, then an afternoon of walking.

Milage wise we had done decent for the day and although we hadn't made a 0 dollar day Springerville didn't wind up being too expensive. We settled on an old cattle corral for a camp spot and headed off to sleep.

To finding the only place to hide on the praire,

Levi
