Up at 5am, bag packed and by 5:45 i walk out the door of my motel (which was such a stereotypical American motel that i felt very satisfied). I arrived at the meeting point for the shuttle at about 6, ready to go only to find out the shuttle vehicle is in for repair and they have to take the hikers in two groups.
So here i am hanging around at the econo lodge in lordsburg waiting for the shuttle to depart. At least I’ve had some good conversations with fellow hikers and got some tips about places to stay and which direction to hike.
We’re on the road now with radar and hopefully we’ll arrive at the start around midday, the perfect time to start hiking!
