Team No Hurries hits 100 miles

We’ve made it to Warner Springs! 109 miles down… 2,539 to go…

Celebration at 50 miles. Same as at 100. Water and shade.

We felt very accomplished to hit the 100 mile marker, and celebrated by drinking water and crawling under a bush for some shade.

Team No Hurries is what our dad calls us. We have added three new members to the team: Worrywort, WeeBee, and Dazzle.

We walk just as far as we feel each day. In no hurry to get anywhere. Enjoying our breaks in what shade we can find under bushes.

The ADZPCTKO event happened last weekend. It was a great time to take a few days off, socialize with everyone else who is on this crazy adventure, and eat lots of food.  I would start wandering around the camp in the morning until someone said hello and offered food. Hang out for a while, and then mozy on to whoever offered food next.

We returned to Scissor’s Crossing to confront a steep hill and no water sources for 14 miles.  It was very tempting to return to Julian for pie at Mom’s, but we resisted. And took on the San Felipe Hills with our umbrellas (that blessed shade producing piece of gear)ready.

While I walk, thoughts wander from admiring the blooming cactus, to trying to avoid the bayonet cacti, being enthralled by the beetles and lizards, and wondering when the next shade might be.

We have walked through the Anza Barrago Desert, the San Felipe Hills, a meadow full of cows and into the Warner Springs Resource Center where they have fed us, and let us sit inside and use indoor plumbing.
