I ran into Debbie and Rachel at Stripes! They offered to help me further down the road if I needed assistance. We hung out for a bit and talked about the weekend celebrations for the 4th of July. I also met a cool rancher named Barry. He looked like he was from the old west. He open carried!We parted ways.
Traffic was non existent. I was probably the only person for miles and miles. I started herping haha. The only difference between me and Lee is that I didn’t want to find any snakes! I stayed vigilant.
It freaked me out some, I upped my pace. I was contemplating trekking through the night all the way to Marathon, 52 miles from Sanderson. Around 12:30a.m. I decided to call it a night. I started scouting places to camp.
They were few and far in between, but I found a great place at a construction site down beneath the road! I set up my hammock between a tree and scaffolding. I star gazed, and fell asleep around 2 a.m.
