I suspect my walk between Mohave Valley and Kingman will require at least one full chapter in the book I hope to write, just because it has taken so long, and I have returned to Mary and Ed 4 times now. My period, weather, the need to winterize my pack and finally a broken wheel on my Cadillac all seemed to conspire against me. While I know Ed and Mary would prefer me to stay at least through Christmas I am definitely ready to get back on the road and continue my adventure! The upcoming walk is between Kingman AZ and Williams AZ. I plan to hug the side roads next to highway 40 to be in relatively well traveled areas if I get caught in scary winter weather.
I am finally all winterized – and great big thanks goes to several people:
Ed and Mary for sleeping bag, boots and gloves
Robin and Paul for tent
Judiann for winter jacket, rain poncho and cash donation
My Dad for cash donation
Richard for cash donation.
The new wheel for my Cadillac should be here in a few days, maybe as early as tomorrow and I will then get back on the road. The weather forecast looks really nice with day time temps back in the 70’s and no frost. Regardless, I am now set up to handle night time temps of 15 degrees fairly easily.
