Oracular Journey
Burford & Gail dropped me off at Florence Junction. I asked them to drive five miles, then wait for me.
Today's signs are more encouraging than yesterday's.

"Explosivos Vivos" . . . didn't they open for The Cramps once?

When I arrived at the first 5-mile checkpoint, Gail & Burf were busily policing the area under a large tree. They had found an empty Marlboro pack, on the side of which was printed "5 MILES." This they awarded to me in honor of the successful completion of the first five miles of the trip.
