We came close to missing it, though, because we were waiting for the bus at the wrong stop. Fortunately, that error was corrected in time.
When the bus dropped us off at the lodge, we first went to the Wy’East Day Lodge, which is the building where I picked up my resupply box yesterday. We went there first to put a few extra food items in a hiker box.
After calculating the mileage to our next resupply stop, Big Lake Youth Camp, we agreed we could get there a little faster than initially planned. That meant less food was needed until then and there was no point in carrying what we didn’t need. It was better to share our extra food with other hikers.
