The Long Way Home

September 25

We left our campsite before daylight not knowing just how far we had to Manning Park and didn't want to miss the bus. We made it in time to eat and shower but not in time to do our laundry. The Canadian Greyhound bus left at 11:10 with 6 other hikers. We took the bus to Vancouver Amtrak bus station and arrived around 3pm. The earliest we could get a train was tomorrow which meant two days in Vancouver, catch a bus to Seattle Airport to catch a flight or rent a car. The bus got in too late for those options so we just we took the least complicated plan and stayed on the bus which will deliver us 32 hours later in Sacramento.

September 26

This was my first trip on a Greyhound Bus. Very interesting people but hard to sleep because it stops at EVERY town. Bus stations are very poorly maintained and not in the better neighborhoods. Vending food is expensive but the only choice. We did stop at a Taco Bell/Subway/Gas Station/Mini Mart at 1pm today. It was the first real food since 6:30pm yesterday in Vancouver. It think one of the main reason people take the bus is that they can get off and smoke pretty often. Wayne's sister is picking him up in Chico, CA so he will have a rest day before the long flight back to Michigan. Looking forward to my own bed and steel cut oatmeal for breakfast.
