Pacific Crest Trail dag 133 til 134

Jeg tror det m vre en heteblge pgang. Det har vrt rundt 40 grader i flere dager. Vi svetter mye p stien og vi har drukket utallige liter vann. Da vi kom ned til Belden i gr ettermiddag, var vi gjennomvte. Det frste vi gjorde var kjpe kald drikke. Som gikk ned p hykant og vi mtte kjpe mer.


Belden er en liten plass "in the middle of no where". Plassen bestr av et hotell med cafe, bar og liten butikk. En kan ogs campe her. Standarden kan diskuteres.  Det er ikke akkurat noe femstjerners, men etter ha ligget flere netter i telt i villmarken, er vi ikke kresen. Stedet ligger nydelig til ved North Fork Feather River. Betjeningen er hjelpsom og hflig selv om vi ser ut som noen skitne bomser. PCT hikere fr lov campe gratis ved elven.
Vannet er kjlig men herlig. Vi bruker vr fantastiske Wildernes spe og vasker hret i elven. Deilig forfriskende.


Ettermiddagen brukes til "henge" p stranden med andre hikere, drikke kald l og spise burger. Det er Laborday weekend og mange amerikanere har fri. Stedet er fylt til randen med mc sykler og diverse mc personligheter. Til god underholdning for oss andre. Party faktoren er hy p stranden. Vi har det ganske bra.
Neste morgen er det vanskelig komme seg opp. Vi har sovet godt til tross for flere tog, biler, motorsykler og elvebrus gjennom natten og morgenen. Men en god frokost frister.

Purplehaze, Axe, Almost cowboy camped, Barbie and Newsfeed. "Trail-names" m man ha.

Deilig omelett, mye kaffe, gode historier og kjekke folk. Perfekt start p en zero day.
Alt vi har gjre idag er vaske klr, bade i elven, drikke l, blogge, spise god mat og planlegge morgendagen. Da skal vi tilbake p stien. Forhpentligvis blir det under 30 grader snart....

I think it must be a heat wave going on. It has been around 40 degrees Celsius for several days. We sweat a lot on the trail and we drink countless liters of water. When we came down to Belden last afternoon, we were soaked. The first thing we did was buy cold drinks. Which went down very fast and we had to buy more.

Belden is a small place "in the middle of no where". The place consists of a hotel with cafe, bar and small shop. One can also camp here. The standard can be discussed. It's not exactly a five star, but after spending several nights in a tent in the wilderness, we're not picky. The place is beautifully located at the North Fork Feather River. The staff is helpful and courteous even though we look like dirty boms. PCT hikers are allowed to camp for free by the river.

The water is cool but lovely. We use our wonderful Wilderness soap and wash our hair in the river. Delicious refreshing.

The afternoon is used to 'hang' on the beach with other hikers, drink cold beer and eat burgers. It's Laborday weekend and many Americans have time off. The place is filled with bikers and various biker personalities. Its good entertainment. Party factor is high on the beach. We are having a great time.

The next morning it's hard to get up. We have slept well despite several trains, cars, motorcycles and river noise through the night and the morning. But a good breakfast is essential.

Delicious omelett, lots of coffee, great stories and fun people. Perfect start of a zero day.

All we have to do today is wash clothes, swim in the river, drink beer, blog, eat good food and plan tomorrow. Then we'll get back on the trail. Hopefully it will be under 30 degrees Celsius  soon ....
