another note on Deputy Block: he said that my being dressed all in black indicated a thief to him. I asked if I were trying to be hide why would I have flashing headlight and taillight? he said he hadn't noticed them. or, for that matter, my reflective ankle straps. so much for his powers of observation.

some things that really helped this trip: clipping my drybag to the two full Chico bags and slinging the whole thing over alternating shoulders; clipping the heavy drybag to a shoulder strap kept cutting my neck. having cured my athlete's foot with baking soda so I could wear socks all the time. my sweat absorbers, so I could go almost a whole week without showering yet, hopefully, not developing an overwhelming stink.
