Short day into Kananaskis to pick up our resupply boxes from the Peter Lougheed Discovery Centre. We called ahead to verify that the boxes were there. Mine and Backtrack’s were there but not Coyote and Shroomer. Their’s was at Kananaskis village. Only Coyote and Backtrack hitched to get the boxes because it is difficult for 4 people to get a ride. They had quite the adventure while Shroomer and I stayed here to set up camp. Thankfully they were able to get all of the boxes.

Steffi from England got a trail name today. Fireball. Not only does it match her personality but we learned why the cabin on yesterday’s road walk was so trashed inside. It looked like it was full of ash or some strange film that turned out to be fire extinguisher. She had put what appeared to be cold ash in a plastic bucket only to wake up at 3am to the smell of burning plastic. She used the extinguisher and the bashed a hole in the floor to put out the fire where the floorboards were catching. It could have been bad for her.
