DAY 21 TO 25 – KM 698,3 TO 840
Hum, nothing new these last 5 days, more walking, I mean, lots of walking, the views are always the same: mountains, lakes & forests. I swimevery day, I want to eat more and more, I am never full, I camp mostly in the woods or with views of them. During the day I am mostly alone, at night these last 5 days, I have camped with people. I reach the campsite
always around 5 and stay outside relaxing, and then some more people arrive, Behemoth always one of them, and then we chat for a bit.
After 23 days I have finished Washington.I
hitchhiked to the next town to buy new shoes, because the ones I’d brought with me were already destroyed and my feet had begun to feel pain.
Then I hitchhiked again to the town near the trail, I ate tons of cherries and camped there, and the next day I hitched to Stevenson to spend a night at a motel. Behemoth went there too, his room had a kitchen and we cooked for ourselves, I ate broccoli with salad, boiled eggs and bread: paradise! I had my third shower in 25 days!
On day 25 I went to the post office to send food to some strategic points in Oregon. Then I walked, climbed from sea level to more than 1000 meters, walked more and camped by the lake, I went for a swim and was thinking about walking more but it was so good that I stayed for the night. I camped with three local women from Oregon, then went for a few days hike. They taught me to pick berries, and now I know a lot of different kinds of berries. It is so good to walk and pick berries along the way.
