Day 8 – Halfway to Council

Wed 9th June 2010 After returning to the campsite last night I discovered that both our neighbours had donated huge amounts of pizza to us so the beef jerky was spared. We ate what we could, having already had our dinner but some was left over. Chris decided he would have it for his breakfast […]

Day 7 – Baker City to Halfway
