Hot day a breeze would be nice

Nice camp last night quite, flat, one needle carpet. So far we have only
seen one hiker each day. Got stated at 7:39 the day was a little hotter
than yesterday. We got to Nancy's car at Kimberly creek and drove to
Bastian Pizza Inn for the buffet. It was after 13:00 by then and about 81*.
Stuffed with pizza we went to Wolf creek Indian museum. $ 3 each due museum
or $ 10 due the reconstructed village. To hot and to stuffed with pizza fire
the out door stuff. The village was discovered in 1970 when I-77 was
conducted. It was about 500 years old.
Next we drove to Laurel Creek 615 for a walk back to Bland. Then we
walked another 4 miles to a great camp site.
At the start of this trip my pack weighed 12 lbs plus 2 days food 4
lbs and 9 lbs of water. About 25 lbs total. Plus we stashed 120 oz of
water at a gravel road crossing and drive up another road to make sure a
creek was flowing. This allowed us to camp where we wanted in this dry
