Day 235

Camp was located around a soccer field that was in front of a wonderful Ice arena.  This facility had showers and a restaurant for us.  It was a long walk to town up a very steep road.  All in all it was a good place to spend a day to do chores, which is what I did.

After spending a couple of hours looking around town, I purchased some lunch fixings at the local grocery store, then headed back to camp to do laundry.  The simple task of doing laundry is made complicated by the fact that there were only 2 washers and 2 dryers in 2 different locations.  There were a bunch of us with dirty laundry!

I spent the next 5 1/2 hours reading a book while waiting for my turn at the washer.  In retrospect I could have done the load my hand and let it dry in the sun sooner.  But once I choose my path I couldn’t retreat.

Oh well, it was a rest day right?
