People –You can’t live with them you can’t live without them.
Carrying on with the review of Cherly Strayed the author of Wild, I like to share some of her trials and errors while hiking and walking the PCT trail.
You either pay or you leave.
Whilst hitching a lift on a slight detour from The PCT route a campsite exists, she reckons a free nights camping is on the cards, before getting back on track. It is dark late at night, & she hasn’t any money her much longed for parcel hadn’t arrived at the last drop off post.
At times like this you can only hope for human kindness. Unfortunately she comes across a mean couple who were monitoring the grounds and wouldn’t let her have a free pitch up for the night – despite it being a virtually empty campsite.
Now this would not have made one ounce of difference to them, would it? if a woman alone is hiking you would think they would have at least some comprehension of her plight. They could have made some sort of deal, – you know, wash the dishes! . send us a cheque later on etc etc. There you go, even in these type of places you get Mr and Mrs Jobsworth, where a rule is a rule is a rule mam, and don’t you forget it.
