i woke up at 5am freezing cold and unable to sleep.

a lone soldier was awake and killing time.

dressed in all the clothes i brought, i returned to sleep for a couple hours.

just waitin' for a train...

one of scott's pipes came unstuck and went clanking down the road.

stopped again. scott's is leaking oil from every orifice.

patiently patient.

getting stumped.

the oil problem was eventually solved and we were on our way to princeton.

its a nice feeling rolling in a pack this large. a first for me.

we stopped for a swim.

up to princeton for a bite.

a chance encounter with a supreme chiller brought us to the mining town of hedley
for a cold drink, a jam session and some plush grass on which to lay our heads.
