One minute update

 

Full episode

 

Breakfast of champions. I left the charming village at 7:15 am on a day of walking in roads with very little to no shoulder, but I made the best of it.

The trolley is getting heavier by the day. I got myself a cold one at a burger joint. Rehydrated and Refilled my camel bag by the San Quintin canal. It was 95 degrees.

Two boiled eggs later and I followed a leisure boat past automated locks. It should have ended there, but there was not a single hotel in Tergnier available. Exhausted and disappointed I made myself lunch and then trekked on. I almost lost my phone.
 

Two hours later and just out of the woods of Saint Nicolas I saw a vision... a Mexican cantina right out of a western. A French mojito and a massive burger later the owner allowed me to camp behind the restaurant.

Did I mention that it rained? A Thunderstorm on a full lunar eclipse. I slept instead on the floor under cover of an awning.
