So Pinkie Chick had her own little adventure! I had attached her to my pack shoulder strap, at some point i lookec down and there was nothing but the string she was attached to!
Sad day indeed. I certainly couldn’t go back, as I had no idea where it might have come off. So I headed on to camp. Now normally I’m on trail by 6:30 a.m. But I decided to sleep in the next morning. When I did get up I hobbled down to the stream to get water for coffee. Shooting Star was there filtering water. I’ve seen her on trail but we had never met. However the couple the drove me into town a week earlier were in town to see her!!
She says ‘ hey you’re chardonnay, I have something for you!’ Guess what she pulls out? Pinkie!! Someone found her and passed her along in hopes she would catch up to me!! So it pays to sleep in!!
