“I am glad to be done with the basin.”
Sweetwater River to Highway 28
An early start landed us in the very small town of Atlantic City at 9:30 am just in time for steak and eggs at the Miner’s Grubstake Diner. It was like going back in time and I loved every minute. We met a great group of men that were either biking or motorcycling parts of the CDT. Turns out many knew people who lived in or had experienced Tehachapi, CA where I live. Tom Cullen was helping his son’s motorcycle support team and offered to give us a ride to Lander, WY even though it was not on their route. Mike Grosscup was the driver. It was so fun getting to know each of them. After reaching Lander they dropped Silly and I off at Safeway.Thank you Tom and Mike!
Safeway was heaven. It was cool, had Wifi, a soft cushy seat, tons of food, and a clean large restroom. Silly reminded me a few times that I actually spent 4 hours in that store. Our whole group: Sweetfish, Ninja, Drop n’ Roll, Love Note, Stryder, Silly Chili and I are staying at the Holiday Lodge. It has a perfect set-up for hikers. We are planning on taking a zero day tomorrow and hiking out early Saturday morning.
