There wasn’t much time for relaxing today as I worked out my schedule in detail for the next three weeks including where I will resupply.  I also organised gear to be mailed ahead and other stuff to be stored, shopped for supplies and picked up my resoled boots from downtown.  After a close look at the remainder of my hike, I booked my return flight to Australia.  It only took two hours on the phone to Qantas!  I now have a schedule I need to stick to, with a couple of buffer days, and am hoping that will be motivating.  All going well, I will finish hiking on 6 October.

I’m a bit worried about how easy it will be to hitchhike back to the trail tomorrow morning from where I am staying, so will try to be early, but also want to get a good night’s sleep in a proper bed, and a reasonable breakfast before I hit the road.
