Being in Flagstaff felt odd after walking through so many small towns. Hey, these bus-things are transporting me places for a minimal fee. Neat. I took a photo of two huge grocery stores right next to each other… then later deleted it in acknowledgement of the fact that such pictures are why I never have room on my phone for photos of actual scenery.
Other than the usual town chores, I wanted to purchase new socks to replace a holey pair and also a new shirt because I’m blasted sick of this one. I don’t know how you can like something when you first get it, then hate it with a fiery passion only a few months later… but a certain percentage of married couples could probably tell you. I tried a gear store named Peace Surplus. They had a great selection of Osprey packs. It was the first time I had seen the Exos in a store (would highly recommend the Exos, by the way). I wasn’t looking for a second pack though, for I have not yet located a neighbourhood child to be my trail servant. I didn’t find a shirt I liked, but I found the socks and chose a pair that the company promises to replace if you wear them out. I see infinite socks in my hiking future! I’m putting my old socks in my bounce box and taking them back to Canada with me. Yes, I also see crazy hoarder cat lady in my future.
