When I woke up the outside of my tent was frozen and so I decided to wait for the sun to thaw the tent and me… Well worth the extra sleep:

Interesting day… Started out amazing. This was my toilet view this morning πŸ˜‰

First foot injuries are coming – I guess ths holes in my shoes letting to many rocks and sand in…

We left at 9am and hiked for about 7 miles before we got to the first reliable water source – a faucet next to a fire station. While we were having a snack it started raining on us. The first real rain in four weeks! We waited a bit in the toilet tolet let the rain pass but it would not stop completely. The weather alternated berween…

…and

…and

But most of the time it looked like this:

And that’s how we felt:

The good thing about “bad” weather is rhat you put down your head and start walking – fast, because you get cold. And you also don’t feel like breaks because you get cold. So we put our hoodies up and started walking. I liked it. It was a day of long and fast hiking with a constant up and down and also a lot of time to let thoughts wander around or just to be empty.

Fun fact of the day – my first roll of toilet paper lasted 28 days πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Another cool thing about hiking and the hiker community is that your background doesn’t matter. Where else would you find a group of a teacher, lawyer, corporate guy, student, hotel door man & wildlife therapist interacting with each other? The only thing which matters is if you are a good hiker or not! Do you follow the rules of LNT (leave no trace), do you have a good and positive attitude and maybe do you have spare food πŸ˜‰ It’s cool to be out of the world again where status, money and comparison are very important.
Love my life! #neverstopexploring #hikerliferules #dowhatmakegood
