Waiting for the Trekkers
We had pancakes for breakfast. I cleaned out the cars and the supply trailer. I think I was a little let down because for three years I've focused exclusively on the goal of getting my doctorate. Now that it's finished, I feel misdirected with no goal. Around noon Jessica, Jacob, and I took two Hondas to the pickup point for the Trekkers. We weren't sure what time they were coming in. We took a picnic lunch and sat in the pine needles. I braided flower crowns for Jessica and myself. a photographer from Alburquerque came and the cowboys driving the horse trailers came. We waited until almost 5:00 before they arrived. On the way back to camp we had to stop twice to let the Trekkers walk around private lands. Jessica and I put on the Dixie Chicks CD and practiced line-dancing on the gravel road. When we got back Lori had beef stew ready for us. It was good to see our friends and hear stories of the trail. We made another campfire and toasted more marshmallows. The incredible thing about the night sky is all the stars. I see stars that I've never seen before. Oh, I forgot. Ron took me out on the motorcycle today. It was my first time to ride one. I was frightened at first, but gradually got over my fear of wrecking and enjoyed the great ride.
