Walked 8 miles early this AM. Drove out US 36, parked in a private Ranch (thankyou, Dave). Walked another 16 miles from there.
Drove to a rest stop at Colorado Hwy 71. There met Dustin & Roger, who lost their water pump.
Gave Dustin a ride to COPE 45 miles further East on US 36, to get help from a friend. It is so far out of my original plan to walk SOUTH on Colorado 71, decided to overnight in the Van in Cope - where I am now writing on Minnie batteries. Will walk SOUTH in am on Colorado Hwy 59, heading for KIT CARSON, Colorado, where I can pick up US 287. Is 70 miles from Cope to Kit Carson.
