DAY 108

June 30, 1999

Today was a really crappy day. It was 40 degrees and raining in the morning. We sat in the small café’ and waited before leaving. The temperature got up to 50 degrees but it continued to rain off and on all day. So we sat in the café’ and played chess, talked, and ate. It seemed like I was constantly eating all day. Mostly out of boredom I suppose. We heard it was supposed to rain for 3 days and Summit Lake is only about 40 miles down the road. I really wanted to hang out at Summit Lake and Muncho Lake during nice, sunny, days. Oh well, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens tomorrow.

By the way, here are some handy conversions:

$1.00 = $1.44
1 Gallon = 3.79 Liters
1lb = .454 Kilograms
1 Mile = 1.61 Kilometers

OK, now I’m really bored today….can you tell?

This is what my receipt from Overwaitra Foods says:

6 Bagels
.39kg Raisins
.55kg Mixed Nuts
.245kg Chocolate Covered Almonds
.335kg Honey Almond Granola
.285kg Brown Sugar
Olive Oil
20 Powerbars
1 box of Nutri-Gran Bars

I also purchased some soups, instant mashed potatoes, and a bunch of other stuff at the IGA but don’t have that receipt handy. If I would have known about Overwaitea Foods, I wouldn’t have gone to the IGA initially. Anyway, there should be enough food for at least a week to the next town. Did I mention how bored I am? Maybe I’ll sing…"Rain, Rain, Go away…" :-)

Today - 49.76 miles
Total -  5042 miles
Avg. Speed - 8.5mph
