Bubble in the desert

A blog I started whilst on a GE "Bubble" assignment in Nevada. I'm back in Cambridge (UK) now but still miss the desert and my friends out there.

Getting started

We set off at 5 15 pm thursday to hike into the night. pleasant temperature. only snag was a skunk ahead of us on the trail. we thought it would run off but it stayed on the trail ahead visible in our torch light. we thought he was getting fed up with us and might spray. he stayed on the trail for half a mile! we slept a few hours in a ditch and then headed out early to avoid the sun. we were very glad of a water cache and chairs set up for hikers. we visited Casa el luna. a Fun spot run by trail angels terry and joe. by 8Pm tonight i reckon i had done 36 Miles in 27 Hours. quite a tough start.

You have started the quest. I do believe some of us will live vicariously through you for the next few months.

Rock on, Carl!!
